I am Fatou, a Frontend developer from Senegal 🇸🇳, living in France 🇫🇷.
My non-linear journey with Frontend development started 6 years ago :
- in 2014, I interned in a company using WordPress ⇒ this introduced me to Web Development
- Since June, I have been working full-time as a FE engineer
Sadly, until 2019, I couldn't level up my JS skills and understand why the JS ecosystem was so complex 😢. I tested different learning platforms (Codeacademy, Treehouse, Udemy) but still no luck.
Then, I stumbled across the YDNJS book series and FrontendMasters which helped me a lot. They also made me realize my biggest mistake: I didn't know the fundamentals. Because I was self-learned, I didn't take the time to master the basics and as a result, a lot of things look like magic 🧙🏾♀️ to me.
I don't want other people to make the same mistakes. That is why I am building frontendjoy to provide in-depth, engaging Web Development content. I want you to know why some technologies exist (CSS, React, Typescript, etc.), and what you need to know about them.
If you are learning Web Development and feel overwhelmed, join me on this journey 🥳.
