Hi all, I have just completed the How To Make A Website track. Should I do the JavaScript, PHP or Ruby track next?

I am wanting to initially get into Front End Development and then eventually software. I have done about half of the JavaScript track already before going back to refresh my HTML and CSS skills.

I recommend the JavaScript track.

Since you indicated Front End development is your primary focus, that would probably benefit you the most. PHP and Ruby are both back-end technologies.

Thank you! I will finish the JavaScript one for now. When completed, would you recommend Ruby or PHP next? Just want to create a bit of path for myself so I can keep a focus and clear direction.

Once you have a good feeling about your Javascript skills, go for the AngularJS course. This is a Javascript framework widely used in the industry. Good luck!

I have been enjoying the Ruby track myself so I would recommend that :-)
