Opinions needed, trying to figure out my path of tracks to take!

Hello Team Treehouse,

I'm Ramona, and I started on Team Treehouse after my cousin brought the website to my attention (he learned to code through Team Treehouse, and Udacity. He's now an iOS app developer).

I joined recently because I'm at a point in my life where I'm tired of where I'm working, who I'm working for, and drained from commuting so much. I've thought about where I fall, and believe that, as an artist, and as someone who can draw and design, I'd fit well into the front end (HTML, CSS, Java, HTTP, etc). My goal, with some intense studying and late nights, is to secure a job as an entry-level front-end developer, and potential web developer.

My question is this: I've looked up a few tracks that fall into what I want to ultimately do, and have selected the ones I think will be most beneficial. Which order do you think I should progress through these tracks? (Please note, I'm taking the digital literacy course to get myself into the mindset and learn some fun facts about computers and coding).

Tracks I've selected (in the order I think I should do them in): Digital Literacy, Learn HTML, Front End Web Development, Web Design, Learn Java, and Java Web Development.

I welcome any and all other suggestions! Thank you all for your time.

Except for a very few with "intermediate" in the title, the tracks are not dependent on each other and can be taken in any order. But your planned order seems pretty reasonable, particularly taking "Digital Literacy" first.

You'll find some common courses so you'll be able to move more quickly in the later tracks.
