Suggested track order?
I'm interested in becoming a backend developer and have started with limited skills so I figured I'd start with the web design track. I'm almost done with it and now I'm wondering what a good progression of tracks would be?
Should I continue with the front end development track, the full stack development track, maybe go right to the php, ruby, or ruby rails track?
Any professionals that can tell me what a good track order would be?
Will the backend language tracks cover everything I need to know or should I be still developing skills in other tracks first?
Thanks in advance!
Each course has suggested prerequisites listed. If you are following a track you will probably already have the prerequisites taken care of. The basic HTML/CSS course is the first one in a lot of the tracks, so you would have gotten some exposure to the front end stuff even if you had started with Ruby - or maybe the web class is part of the more advanced Rails track. There are several courses to learn the back-end language before you start integrating it into a web page.
