RememberMe806415dSomething like JS doesn't exactly require a degree. I would say a build up a good portfolio showcasing all sorts of JS skills, from frontend development in something like React to backend in Node and several essential libraries/concepts in between (WebSockets, asynchronous stuff, immutability and functional programming, etc.)
I'm not a web dev though, would be great if someone else with more experience corrects/extends this answer.
cannonau19515dYou could try freecodecamp.org, anyone into web development will be pretty impressed if you finish the whole thing, even "just" the front end part.
Other than that, build a portfolio (fcc will help you start that).
Maybe build a free online game? You'll even get some experience handling user requests, bug reports, etcetera.
Edit: if you find anything interesting, please do respond to my earlier rant if you have the time. I'm looking for stuff to teach beginners.
KorDarei46115dHere's the story, in my beginning i had some certificates from SoloLearn, but i didn't include them in my resume because i got them overnight, and i didnt think i make any difference...
At one specific job i thought that i'm not being interviewed by developer but a businessman, and they like a pile of colorfull papers... so i printed them out and included with resume... and guess who got the job :D
Untill that point those certificates, diploma, or any paper had meaning, from then you're on your own...
It's just that it's hard to communicate that fact over the phone without some bloody certification

Yes. It's the Microsoft 70-480 exam, programming in HTML5 with JS & CSS3.
You should be able to pass the exam without any training if you are skilled and experienced enough which I assume you are.
