Where should i continue ?

Hello Treehouse ! I just finished the Beginner Javascript Track, so that i'm pretty use to be doing some good interraction (JS basics, DOM, JQuery and plugg ins, etc..). I wanted some advice on where i should continue after that ? I think about D3.js or should i begin another type of language ? I'm really hesitating right now !

If you're enjoying JavaScript you might go for Full Stack JavaScript next. Or maybe Front-End Web Development if you want more general web technology.

Learn some basic html and css, or check out the full-stack javascript track? But it really depends on what the end goal of your learning is :-)

Hi Hugo, before jumping into another language i'd recommend that you build an application from scratch incorporating everything you've just learned. By doing this you'll internalize the skills you learned in the course by making mistakes, asking questions and finding solutions. Then I'd think about starting another course/track.

Thanks for your answer, my first goas is to use Javascript so that i can relate with a database; i've already learnt about SQL and so on, but i'd like to link js so that for example i could put fields i've written ininto my database

JS & databases = node.js and MongoDB

The main benefit in the "learning curve" is that MongoDB is very intuitive and readable

https://teamtreehouse.com/library/mongo-basics

https://teamtreehouse.com/library/nodejs-basics-2

https://www.mongodb.com/

This is a huge topic and I believe in the future treehouse will add more courses about this.

In my opnion - if you want to get more deeply to JS: This is the "full" track of JS: https://teamtreehouse.com/tracks/full-stack-javascript

Or this for better HTML-CSS-JS knowledge (You already learn some of the courses): https://teamtreehouse.com/tracks/front-end-web-development

Anyway "D3.js" is a short course :) You can combine this course with any track.

Also angular / react / node.js and other cool libraries of JS will give you a lot of practical knowledge. https://teamtreehouse.com/library/topic:javascript

  • "should i begin another type of language" :) its very Individual
