How can I become a web developer in 2017?
I’ve received this question multiple times on this channel and so here is my attempt at answering it.
Becoming a web developer/web designer is a great way to earn a higher salary, to work for yourself and to obtain a location independent lifestyle; a lifestyle that allows you to live and work from wherever you want.
In this video, I break down how you too can become a full stack WordPress developer who can write both front end and back end code.
Not only that but you should be able to achieve this in 6 months or less.
I recommend a total of 2 online video courses and 8 web development books.
