Best choice for next track

Hi all - I'm finishing the front end track soon (through Code Oregon) and I'm looking for recommendations on what to start next given the current work environment in Portland. I know it's a broad question, but honestly I find all of it interesting and I am pretty focused right now on transitioning careers, so I'd like to choose whatever would position me the most strongly. Suggestions and reasoning are sincerely appreciated!

HI Jen what would you like to accomplish first. I've knocked around the site a bit I'm sure that I can help you out.

Hi Jen,

Many job listings I've seen ask for full-stack engineers (front-end and back-end). With that in mind, I recommend the PHP track, followed by Wordpress Development. Also, sprinkle in some front-end along the way to keep things fresh.
