Becoming a Squarespace developer

Hi everyone, I'm new here and new to web design and coding but I just wanted to get some ideas/opinions on a good pathway for a newbie to get started on the road to becoming a squarespace developer. Now, like I said I'm only brand new to this, so if I just asked something taboo then I apologise. I don't know enough about coding yet to be against using a pre-existing platform like squarespace vs original code but I just thought it might be a quick way of getting some sort of skills and experience in the freelance market. Keen to hear any thoughts on this and am open to suggestions on a better pathway to work towards developing a career in the industry. Thank you!

So are you looking to make a business model like them for freelancing?

No rather just be a freelancer that perhaps leverage their CMS etc as a means to develop sites. Similar to wordpress developers except you need to apply to Squarespace in order to be a recognised developer.

Curious idea. Wondering if you went ahead with applying to Squarespace in the end?
