Where Do You Start From, To Become A Full Stack Developer?here Is My Experience by Bytestream: 5:44pm On Aug 18, 2019
Well, my name is hyde Dennison, and I currently work at andela, I am quite inspired by some posts by other nairalanders concerning tech,so I decided to share my own experience in the tech industry to encourage the younger generation or newbies on thier journey to the top in becoming a professional developer.
Being a developer is journey and the reason why most people don't make it is because they don't remain long enough on the development road to actually reap the fruit of the hard work they put in at the beginning.
When i started learning programming with python,fascinated by the ease of learning python I decided to stick to python, and I actually did stay with python for some time and started doing forensics and ethical hacking with it, in fact I developed some gui programs that was industry standard. But however after sometime I got bored with python and started learning java for Android, after getting stuck when I couldn't have my emulator run on my Android studio I switched to learning c# and started working on unity (is a game development platform but can also be used for creating apps) after sometime I got bored with c# and started learning flutter for android development but still haven learned it I couldn't accept any jobs from clients and still didn't have any portfolio of any apps I developed on my own.
I came under pressure in 2016 when I left school and stopped receiving allowances from my parents , I ran broke and couldn't find a job, I tried teaching computer appreciation in school but still couldn't hold a job for more than a term ,so to cut the story short I quit teaching and decided to make my living by programming.
I joined Fiverr, but then I will see development jobs and my mind will start beating "I always felt I was not good enough"that was because I haven't built my confidence by at least tackling smaller jobs.
*I then decided to start from webdevelopement and Start as if I new nothing about programming , first i started with WordPress, this helped me get design straight and helped me understand clients taste and the modern trends in web development.while a wordpress developer I was able to raise 65k to get a corei3 and while accepting webdevelopement jobs I started learning html and CSS underground .after sometime I added JavaScript to it(I hated JavaScript). After learning for 3months with videos and data bought from the funds I get from developing WordPress websites.i developed my first website from scratch www.sunshinekids.com.ng actually it was for a client and at the footer you will see my number there, I was so excited and I started developeing other simple websites for clients. My principle was that, I developed company websites that didn't need login or too much backend knowledge from scratch while I developed blogs and complex websites with wordpress. It was fun while it lasted but I wanted more...(the key is :get a source of getting money to at least fuel your learning related to programming)
*My next stage in development started March 2017 when I was halfway through JavaScript, I den accepted my first "real" project from a client from Fiverr, I was quite scared at first, it was a site for selling cars and it needed backend and front end knowledge of web developement, well i was able to finish the website by August and with it was able to learn JavaScript more in-depth, LEMME DROP A WORD OF ADVICE AFTEE LEARNING ANY LANGUAGE TO START PROGRAMMING NEXT LEARN JAVASCRIPT IT WILL PAY YOU, yes it did pay me as I stuck to JavaScript for the rest of the year and was able to develop my first Android app in JavaScrpt by December2017/January 2018, WITH JAVASCRPT YOU CAN DO ANYTHING, FROM WEBDEVELOPEMENT TO CREATING ANDROID OR IOS APPLICATION.,well I started getting jobs from fiverr worth 500$,200$ and was able to secure Power supply at my house at iyana -ikapaja and at least pay my rent. I was fine with JavaScrpt as my means of making money and later I inputed by knowledge of flutter and c# and developed some cool apps some include: baby napper , bubble run, bitpay and so on(all for clients on fiverr) until I heard of machine learning and data science by July 2018, well I felt confused, I even felt intimidated by developers In these fields.
But one word from one guy in unilag changed my life, he said"hyde stick to what you do and later incorporate it into your initial work flow"
I den remembered how I got to the stage I was now, from WordPress to frontend to backend to mobile development now at least I could call myself a developer, I jumped into machine learning, and started learning by videos and books it was not hard for me because I had a relatively stable source of income, at least if android or iOS doesn't come, webdevelopement will come and if webdevelopement doesn't come den my local WordPress clients must contact me and dats how I learnt machine learning convinently, to cut the story short by September, I could automate stuff on sites I developed for clients and didn't have to rely on embeding APIs , I attended a boothcamp by andela and was selected by Mr Ale, (I never new the company of a client I worked for on Fiverr was among the supporters of the Boothcamp) and dats how part time developer at andela and appart from getting jobs from andela, my WordPress clients still call me, webdesign clients still call me, webdevelopement jobs still come, android and iOS jobs still come in and atleast I can do my A.i and machine learning at my leisure....am actually working on my own personal project.
1.The fact is, although everyone his/her own calling in programming,start with something and keep building on it, mine was wordpress
2.please learn JavaScript, it will help you, trust me.it worked and is working for me and it will (notice I did not say may) work for you if you stick to it at least to professional level.
3. Don't get fazed by wat other people are doing, don't learn java because people are learning it, keep building on what you have started out with it, if it's scripting keep building on it and forget gui.
4.no harm in starting simple, (if teaching works for you fine) just get something that will supply you funds while you are developing your self ,because to learn you need money.
You can tell me what you feel about my story by commenting on this thread here on Nairaland, thanks.

I need to get something from you, I believe I can develop virtually for anyone but I am always out of confidence if I start hearing big website and money. Please how do I overcome this fear. I tend to over think and sometimes I get to a point that I start fearing I could break things, what can you tell me from your experience.

yeah, I was at that cross road too, just start with a small project, it might be webdesign, or maybe a small app for a client with java.
When you can tackle jobs of 30k,50k successfully, be sure that you have built d confidence to handle larger jobs.
Your issue happens to everyone so just start with a little project and start implementing everything you have learnt until you reach a point where you are self motivated and confident enough to handle any development job that comes your way.

well start by getting a relatively stable source income (mine was developing WordPress,my girlfriend started with graphics design;today we are both developers) when at least you have a source of getting like free 3-5k for data every month, that is a great start.
Start with python, or HTML and CSS, and learn JavaScript as your universal PL, you can later define your development path more clearly by adding more complex languages to your portfolio.

Thank you very much for sharing this sir. I have issues sticking to a language and following it through to pro level. I started with html, css and php then I'd to stay away from programming to work for a year in as a field engineer and no time for learning programming due to the very tight schedule and traveling.

After a year and two months it was like someone cleared php away from my memory and then I read about python. I started learning with lots of enthusiasm and I quickly delved into Django then I'd to go back to school and school pressure seriously reduced the amount of time I spend on building myself. The fear of graduating with low grade made me gv it higher priority.

Now on two and a half months break. I plan on maximizing it and building myself.

Kindly advise me.

ooh u don't develop from websites scratch ?.....
I think you should stick to Android development.instead of using CMS...well I also have Android apps developed with JavaScript, kotlin and java and right now am working on an app with dart(flutter).

I don't have an issue building websites in WordPress...but as a developer (creator) you have no business choosing the easy way for long .
I still develope with wordpress, but my work is quite different because I can write custom JavaScript for my site giving it additional functionality that the theme can never give me.

I am sorry I didn't respond on time, but I hope it's not too late,
Since you have started doing backend with python, you have to follow it true.but still you have to secure your self by learning javascript (angular and react).javascript will give you something to fall back on when python gets alittle too complex.
Put in 7-11hours in to python for 5days and xame hrs for javascript for 2 days for 3weeks.
Den alternative the languages and Start doing javascript for 5days and python for 2days for xame 3 weeks... keep doing this untill you have built your whole portfolio ( please don't let any other languages distract you , you can do d hrs at a stretch or at intervals but make sure you code for 7hrs every day)
3gig of dat lasts me for 5days I don't know how long it will last you but you really have to have money to achieve "real learning".
Lastly PHP is cool but it's can't be compared to js let alone python so my bro..forget fo PHP and learn important languages first, later you can add it to your portfolio.

My question is, as an amateur web designer, do I need to have a site running just to show case my work or how do I convince a client or prove that am a web designer??

I am sorry I didn't respond on time, but I hope it's not too late,
Since you have started doing backend with python, you have to follow it true.but still you have to secure your self by learning javascript (angular and react).javascript will give you something to fall back on when python gets alittle too complex.
Put in 7-11hours in to python for 5days and xame hrs for javascript for 2 days for 3weeks.
Den alternative the languages and Start doing javascript for 5days and python for 2days for xame 3 weeks... keep doing this untill you have built your whole portfolio ( please don't let any other languages distract you , you can do d hrs at a stretch or at intervals but make sure you code for 7hrs every day)
3gig of dat lasts me for 5days I don't know how long it will last you but you really have to have money to achieve "real learning".
Lastly PHP is cool but it's can't be compared to js let alone python so my bro..forget fo PHP and learn important languages first, later you can add it to your portfolio.
No, it's not too late. Thank you very much sir. I really appreciate.

well,convincing your client to patronize you is a vital part of any profession.
Off course you should have a website wich you should have hosted to show that atleast you work for clients b4. But there are some part of your portfolio that is better kept offline, an example is a Ponzi site or an online forum which in such cases it's better for you to keep these part of your portfolio to show your clients locally. Besides if you are a developer who creates sites from scratch, most of your portfolio will certainly be offline but if you are a CMS developer with maybe WordPress or Joomla you probably would have your websites portfolios online.
In conclusion, if possible create a website about yourself that contains linke to your portfolio, while keeping your more complex projects offline. It help you give your brand an online presence and convince prospective clients.
