Going from good to pro

  • # November 23, 2012 at 4:16 am

    Hi!
    I’ve been front ending for about three years now and I learned a lot on the way. I had the opportunity to work on big sites and I think I’ve reached a good level. Now I want to go for the next step and I don’t know how to do it. Do you suggest to learn by doing (the stuff I do for my job and personal experiments)? Read books? Subscribe to treehouse or others (which one is the best?)? All of the above? Others?

    I’m really interested in opinions about treehouse and similar services as they look great but cost a lot (250 a year). Do they really help?

    Thanks

    Jonas

    I would recommend a balance of all that you have suggested actually. They all go hand-in-hand and really compliment each other.

    Treehouse is pretty good, but I wouldn’t say it’s a resource for becoming pro, as in its a great tool for really nailing down the basics and intermediate stuff, but expert level improvements it is not.

    Lynda might be more your speed if you’re already experienced in the medium level stuff.

    Treehouse is really good for going from good to pro (I’ve used it my self) On Lynda the videos were just so dry and boring that I couldn’t learn anything from them.
