Newbie question

Any good free resources for full stack web development. Also if a resource teaches mainly frontend but also teaches some backend it is a full stack web development resource in my eyes. I was looking at freecodecamp but it is a bit too vast for me. I am also looking at the cokplete intro to web development v2 course by Brian holt for free on frontend masters but it is 2 years old and has not been updated. Also it does not teach that much bakcend hust node and express.

Also another question is frontend masters good for web development. I did not find many threads about it. I got a discount for it which gives me a one year subscription for 195 dollars

    @Sony-wf-1000xm3 Fullstack means you do more for less money. The industry needs to: specialize specialize and more specialize.

    Also 200$ is a bit much. I got 12 ebooks for 5$. Those prices are for companies.

    Concur with @010001111 ; the generalist bent towards tech employment is engineered to commoditize professional labour. Pick a specialty and go deep. Learn the orbital bits as you need to.

    This is a fairly good cheap pile the covers a broad range of topics. Read and figure out what you like, then dig into that.

    1. Pick some shit you want to build.

    2. Pick the first fuckin tutorial that you can find and start building said shit.

    3. If tutorial sucks, pick next available resource and continue building.

    4. Repeat till shit is built. Start building new shit.

    Stop having this notion that there's some magical tutorial out there that will gently take you from novice to engineer. It doesn't exist. It's all just a bunch of references to stuff that other people built. None of it is worth anything unless you build stuff. It's not that you finish learning a bunch of videos and THEN start building. The thing you build IS the learning. The tutorial is just a dot on the map.

    Idk what languages you know so this is a tougher question but if you know python then the Flask Mega Tutorial is pretty great and I’m sure there are some good free JS tutorials or courses.

    To get you started quickly (while I normally don't recommend JS focused courses) with a well designed course, this is free: https://fullstackopen.com/en

    Everybody here is going to shit on the standard LAMP model...

    While like 75% of the web is still running on the standard LAMP model.

    And meanwhile half the threads are about how their Kubernetes or Docker or NPM or whatever the fuck is all fucked up and broken and now they can't work.

    IMO...

    Get an AWS account. Make a T2.micro (free). Figure out how to install Apache, MySQL, PHP on it yourself... you should be able to get this process down to about 5 minutes.

    Once you know how to deploy a server and code on it the easy common way... THEN maybe think about starting in with Node dev or playing with nginx or some nosql databases or fancy ass environmentless deployments.

    @Sony-wf-1000xm3 devrant is built with php

    @Sony-wf-1000xm3 I don't think you should base your understanding of php sucking or not on rants. The bad rap it gets is often misplaced and those who've actually used php as part of their toolset enough to actually learn it don't usually bash it (more than recognizing its weaknesses of course)
