Need Some Guidance! I would like current professionals to give me advice!

I am in mix here with wanting to learn various things. I am interested in front end web development( which i know more of) and swift. I want to learn both but I want to learn 1 faster then the other because I want to land a job for one of those. At times i catch my self doing the front end course, then changing my mind and doing the swift course and ping ponging back and forth between the 2 while other languages still catch my mind as well. What is a good starting point to focus on 1 thing at a time? I want to build an iOS app, but at the same time I want to land a career in development.

Thank you in advance for the responses !

Hi Jason,

I think ultimately it comes down to the job market in your area. If there are a lot of opportunities for Swift Developers then I don't think you could go wrong by going through the iOS Development with Swift 2.0 Track and start building up a dedicated portfolio.

I've not gone through the Swift courses myself, but everything appears to be self-contained, which would help keep you focused and I would expect this would land you a job quicker. Once you've got your foot in the door, you could then use your spare time to return to learning other things while getting some invaluable commercial experience.

Hope that helps! Joel
