Wich path should i take to become Full Stack Web Developer?

My goal is to be a better web developer. In the future i want to be only a back-end developer.

But i know, i have to know almost everything.

So, what path should i start? I already know swift. (2 apps published)

Do the front end web development track first. Once you finish that up do the full stack JavaScript track. You will also need to get very familiar with a backend language (PHP, Python, ruby, node.js etc..)

Great, thank you. I want to learn python as my backend language. Or maybe node.js

Node.js is pretty cool as if you can master JS you can use it for both frontend and backend.

Python is overall a very well rounded, powerful language.
