Please can you tell me why

jQuery is a little bit outdated. You should go for react or angular.

You can learn wordpress later, that's if you want to be a wordpress developer.

Many people consider jquery obsolete in 2020, in fact, jquery is obsolete.

Vuejs, Reactjs and Angular js are much better option presently. Of all the three, Vuejs is beginner friendly.

WordPress is just another PHP framework, learn php itself. Then you choose to go with popular php frameworks like Laravel, CakePHP, codeigniter...

I strongly recommend Laravel though.


WordPress developers are not considered serious developers.

Wow and someone told me its a waste of time to learn how to build sites from scratch.... Thank God I ignored the advice.

I have learnt HTML, CSS , JavaScript , Node JS (not to perfection) and mongoDB. Is it a wise decision?

Cos I heard that its much better to learn PHP and mySQL than since its cheaper and easier to host

A very wise one!

One advantage of Javascript/Node js is you don't need to learn a new language for the backend, it's js Javascript on the front and back end. Its an excellent choice!

Maybe PHP websites are cheaper and easier to host because PHP is everywhere on the web but Javascript is here to stay, in fact, it's taking over.

PHP == NODEjs
MongoDB == Mysql/MariaDb

Re: Share Your Remote Job Experience As A Developer by mlkraj(m): 3:32pm On Jul 15, 2020
Hello guys, I just started freelancing recently and upwork ask me today to verify my account by sending a picture of a government issued I'd card as well as the video interview within 7 days.

My question is, does upwork allow paper national id card/slip (the brown copy) ? because that is only what I have access to now. And if NO what do I do next (I don't have money to collect either driver's license nor international passport) also it's not election time yet so voter's card is out of it.

Note: I don't even have the paper national id card yet I'll just quickly go and collect it. Nd I dont want to stress myself and spend money(since they've not officially resumed) if it would b useless at last.

Pls help


Edit: Answer found BT if u still have anuy contribution u can drop it.

I'm glad you asked
1. Programming is not a "hard" But I won't lie, can be stressful.. Programming is the act of designing and building an executable computer program to accomplish a specific task... Accomplishing this task when you still learning can be stressful but never hard... "Don't give up" my mentor encourage words...

2. There are no specific estimated time to learn but I will advice you to keep learning till the next 6months or more... By that time, you not an expect but atleast you should be able to carry on many practice project on you own

3. Its depends on what kind of programs you want to learn... If you want to be frontend web developer I think your budget should start from 50k from a well standard IT school, if you want to run full stack Or software Development , then I guess budget should be around 100+... You maybe lucky to see more cheaper rate its not a fixed price... What matters is a sound IT school

4. I can only advice you to search for top 10 IT school in your state that offer those courses ...
My mentor gave me everything I wanted before he relocated to the States as Full Stack Developer


5. Programming Is Obviously one of the best career to pursue right now.. We are in the word of digital Computer.. Other field needs us to function well... Medical needs us.. We provide lots of ICU equipment human need to survive
Education needs IT
Banks Can't run without IT
Even in the military.
IT personal are one of the highest paid in Canada /UnitedStates also Europe..

6.You are have very high assurance to secure a job with your IT skills... But note! Not all that graduate will get a job in IT company... Just like medical school

We call ourselves Qualified Computer Scientist because we understand the concept and fundamental of our career especially in the practical area...

You will secure a job if you know what you doing
You need to tell yourself! I want to be a programmer and you must prove It...
If you learn and you know it... Consider yourself settled in life...

Tho NIGERIA got issue with Employment,
Bright brain or not... Naija will always be Naija

I will advice if you still an undergraduate studying computer science... As soon as you through with school and you have your Skills at hand.... Pls I beg find a way to relocate outside the country

NorthAmerica value IT
Europe value IT
Asia value IT
Africa? Not all

Pls find a way to run your master in advance computer Outside nigeria and not only you will be okay in Life...

You will be successful...

Any Day I realize I follow my dream right from my kid age... I will always be greatful

Let me tell you a funny facts about me

While arranging my docs
I found my result in Nursary school

Out of 9 subjects

Result was
8 subjects result was D
While one subject was A

Computer was only subject I scored A

I was very little then but I know my destiny that day


Yours maybe different but still you can rewrite it and be a full Time Programmer and earn fortune for yourself and your family

Thanks and Goodluck

More question feel free to ask....
Thank you so much for this information....
As u rightly said, u started at a very you age...
I am 23, is it too late for me to learn it?
And I am nt even a science student talk more of doing computer science in the university...
I just want to learn it from an experience person, and I intend to be an experienced full stack web developer...
Pls advice me, tell me things i need know...
God bless u for ur tym...

I know you asked a different person this question, but I'd like to give answers to the best of my knowledge.

1. Even at 50 or 55, it is never too late to learn WebDev and get a job. Whether frontend, backend or fullstack, just get very comfortable with whatever you choose and then start applying for jobs.

2. I believe that the answer to the question of how long you can learn before getting a job is relative. How quick you can get a very good understanding of what you learn and how comfortable you can actually build projects is more important. It could take Mr. A 3 months, it could take Mr. B 9 months. I hope you understand. Just love what you do, be dedicated, and build projects to hone your skills as you learn. You could choose to build imaginary projects, do a few free WebDev jobs for one or two people and start freelancing to build your portfolio.

3. Try to understand that there's no perfection (in the real sense of the word) as a web developer or programmer. Even people with 10, 15 or more years of experience still learn. Like I mentioned earlier, learn and practice, build projects until you are comfortable, then apply for jobs. Developers still learn on the job.
Some people prefer one-on-one physical tutorials, while others are very OK with learning online. There are lots of free online resources that you could use. There's Freecodecamp, codecademy, W3school, etc. Freecodecamp seems to be the most popular free online resource. There's Udemy if you wish to pay and learn. There are also lots of free videos on YouTube. Search for videos by TraversyMedia, he's really good and explains well. Also Freecodecamp YouTube videos.


I hope these answers help. Cheers and all the best.

I must add, for frontend WebDev, start learning in the following order:
1. HTML
2.CSS
3. JavaScript
Then you can add React, etc.

Fullstack means you need to be good with both frontend and backend technologies. And I feel it's best to start with front-end technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript first, then learn frameworks such as React, AngularJS etc.

For the programming languages, I'd say JavaScript and Python. There are others as well.

For the salaries, I can't really say but the pay is good. It's been discussed on this thread.

That is not entirely true.

PHP 7 for example is faster than Ruby, Python and Nodejs.


It's depends on what you are building and the developer.

A bad programmer can build a snail project with Ferrari programming language.
Re: Share Your Remote Job Experience As A Developer by flexispy: 3:58pm On Jul 16, 2020
Just to add to what the other people have said.
Check roadmap.sh for both frontend and backend guide
If you want to learn through udemy there are many courses that teach fullstack development, search on udemy go through their course overview and pick the one you prefer the most.

You can download udemy courses from ' freecoursesite.com ' torrent download or ttorial.com Google drive download
