Hi I'm New and would like your help

Hi I'm new and would like someone to please help me understand this website better. My goal is to be a mix of Front End Developer and also a Back End Developer. My goal was to just pay $25 for the classes on the track of Front End Development and then jumping into Ruby on Rails to top my Back End development skills. Well that was the plan until I seen TechDegree which I'm very curious about and just need better understanding about it. Could I still reach my goal of being a Front/Back End Developer by taking that course. I understand it's 6 months and is $199, which isn't cheap but a heck of a better deal then what college has. Please Let me know how can I achieve my goal into this. Oh also I would like to try my luck in C# which I see they teach here as well. Please someone help me

                                                                                                  --Sincerely A Confused Beginner

The prices are per month. So it depends on the pace you work and how much time you dedicate to this. I would initially just start of with the courses normally and if you like it and there style of teaching, then go for a qualification with the techdegree.

I have almost finished the front end web course and it has taken some time.

I Love the way they teach, I'm learning more with them then in school. That says a lot because I have A.D.D and takes a lot.

Same here, the forum is a great place and everyone is really helpful. I find though its best to stick through one track that you like. So you know the full in's and outs of it and that can transfer later on to courses or even get you a job.
