- Are certifications worth it? 29 answers
I'm 16-years old, and due to being placed in accelerated programs during my whole academic career, I just finished high school over the holiday season. For the past year or so I've been teaching myself web development (front-end, more specifically), and want to go into a career in the field. I have a front-end internship all lined up for the summer (some places don't offer them year-round, I guess), but I want to continue learning between these two periods. More specifically, I want to learn some server-side development so I can understand the interconnection between the front-end and back-end better.
Edit: I've been building a portfolio, and am considering skipping going for a degree altogether. I just want to do this for self-improvement.
