"Don't be a Fullstack Developer" i don't think so, i mean is not about know everything but has some knowledges helps.
"Practice as much as you can" true true true, but review, create and colaborate with open-source (and see code of diferent peoples) help a lot
"Don't think about the amount of your salary" where is good paid? if you don't value your work, nobody will

Hi Michel, how are u doing? thank u for your comment, I agree with your point about fullstack developer, but in the beginning as programmer we have a lot of information to learn, so starting from backend or frontend is better in my opinion.

I totally agree with your point about practice as much as you can, thank you for remember me about this others points.

About salary, here In Brazil programmers is a really well-paid profession, so my point is in the beginning is more important to focus on learning than to earn money.

I think the advice to Not be a 'full stack' developer is a good one to start with. Small steps, I say. As a beginner, there are so many topics to master. There are so many platforms too. Full stack is a huge area of study. I have met people that said start with PHP, then others that say JS, or Python in other areas... Find a path for yourself first.

To some working with a database can be really easy, but for others no so. It may be true that the simplest jobs require 4 SQL commands but I say focus on Design or CSS and learning JS first. Don't get overwhelmed is my message.

To me there are long term and short term goals.
