Hey John , I’m writing from Greece, I’m trying to change professional career into web development, so I just purchased your PHP, MySQL course in un Udemy, after I listened to your Podcast, I’m glad that I made this choice, thanks for your advise, I really like Javascript, I’m learning react-redux right now , I’m not a design guy, so I think your talk about learning backend with PHP, make me feel better in the way that I can get a job knowing the full stack.

Kind regards!

Glad to hear that and thanks for enrolling in the course. Yeah, plenty of full-stack jobs out there. I’m not great at design, either, so I feel your pain there. 😀

Question, I’ve been listening to your podcasts AND their versions on YouTube. From my knowledge of SEO I’m guessing it’s better for you if I do both including of course LIKEing them on YouTube?

I love your stuff. I’ve been in the Internet business,since 1994. Started with websites with HTML of course, using HTML editor then in 2000 using Dreamweaver, then WordPress around 2006. As I’m sure you’re aware, I’ve never connected with a programmer who is so open and sharing like you do. Very much appreciate that.

What you’re sharing about what is being looked for re: front end development industry, is very eye-opening. Not that it wasn’t obvious, just that whenever I saw coding (JavaScript for one) especially pertaining to WordPress, I felt they were actually didn’t realize that wasn’t really necessary. Though as I said, since I’ve been in the industry as long as I have, I’ve seen employers asking for skills that weren’t really necessary. Would LOVE you’re take on that.
