Front-end Web Development Track

So, ever since I joined Treehouse last week, I've been thinking about where I go AFTER the front-end web development track. I know that it would be helpful to take on other tracks before I call myself a web developer, but would I be set up to jumpstart my career in web development after this track? I am very passionate about what I'm learning, and I know that this is what I want to do for a living because to me, coding and learning with Treehouse is all fun. After reading and watching a lot of the Treehouse success stories, it made me feel like wanting to be one of those people. I just want to know if that can be me after the front-end web development track. If not, I'll have no opposition to keep on learning until I can make that dream a reality.

It depends, but Don't concern yourself about the success of other coders. It WILL mess you up. Treehouse did a video on this. Its called "Imposter Syndrome".

Although these success stories are true, see these success videos as promotional content only.

In my experience yes after going though a few tracks with treehouse is has definitely boosted my career. Just have to realize that you will mess up and that everyone learns differently.
