Difference between Front End Design and Web Design Track?

Like the title says trying to figure out the real difference between the Front End design track and the Web Design Track.

3 Answers

Web design leans more towards css, design and graphics. Front-end web dev leans more towards javascript, jQuery, consoles and version control.

But both give you a good grounding in creating websites and I wouldn't get too hung up on the differences. I've been following the web design track, but have been jumping around other video series that interest me as well. Currently I seem closer to completing the dev track even though I'm not following it on purpose.

My answer is similar to bothxp. I'm on the Front-End Dev track but I completed most of the courses in the design library. I think you should focus on finishing one track but try other courses out to keep your interest up.

Thank you that helps in figuring out more of what I want to go with.
