Career question. Hi guys, I have a question regarding full-stack web development.
I want to eventually become a full-stack web developer and now I'm realizing it's a marathon not a sprint.
I want to start at the front end and then eventually get to the back end and start with NodeJS.
I also realize if I'm going to learn and work with NodeJS, I need to put some time into that alone but right now I'm still trying to improve my front end skills.
Instead of starting with NodeJS, should I start with AngularJS and other front end frameworks first?

Depends on how eager you are to work on the server side. Frameworks are mostly front-end.
AngularJS and Bootstrap are both very popular, and Bootstrap is pretty easy to pick up. Angular has a bit of a learning curve as it moves some of the functionality normally associated with the server side over to the front end.
If your needs allow, I'd recommend learning more about server concepts before jumping into Angular, because server familiarity will make understanding Angular a bit easier.
Anyway, good luck and pace yourself.
