Fridays Off: The BEST Way To Become A Full-Time Developer

He asked me this exact thing just two days ago.

In fact, 1000s of developers from all over the world, from every walk of life and in every kind of financial situation have asked me this exact same thing.

I love these guys.

They’re just like you and me.

Dads fighting to put food on the table without selling their soul to some boring 9-5.

Single moms scratching and clawing to give their kids a life as close to “normal” as they can hope for.

College kids… so optimistic and excited for their future.

I’ve experienced all of these things at one point or another in my life.

So, I know when they ask the question… it’s not just a question.

It’s THE question.

It’s the answer to the life they’re battling with right now.

Maybe the life YOU are battling with right now.

“I wish somebody would please just tell me what I need to learn to do this full-time! I’ll do whatever. I’m a hard-worker. I just need to know WHAT to do.”

I always sense a tinge of agony when somebody asks me this question. I remember it well.

It’s the question I battled with for several years when I first started learning web development.

And back then… there were no good answers.

That question kept me chained to my dead-end job at the local pizza joint.

Wasted 4 years of my life trying to learn the skills to do this full-time.

And made me give up several times.

Today, though, the answer is easy to find.

In fact, let me just give it to you.

Here’s exactly what you need to know to work full-time as a web developer:

  1. HTML 5: The bedrock of all web pages.
  2. CSS 3: The latest and greatest tricks for making stunning looking websites
  3. Javascript & jQuery: Essential for today’s interactive web
  4. PHP: The language every “big” website runs on. Crucial.
  5. MySQL: Robin to PHP’s Batman for creating interactive websites.
  6. Bootstrap: THE front-end web development framework.
  7. WordPress: Powers 26% of all websites. Must know.
  8. Mobile Apps: The mobile revolution is already here.

There it is. That’s the list.

“But wait… what about Node or Angular? And SASS and LESS? What about all the new stuff coming out?”

Look, that stuff is great… but it’s not necessary.

The list above is required. You HAVE to know how to do those things. The rest (right now) is just gravy. Learn it later.

Now, what if I told you that you could learn absolutely everything on that list for less than I spend on toilet paper each month (we do have 5 people in the house)?

Smart developers say, “where do I sign up?”.

Right here.

Check the list. Check the ratings. Check the number of students.

This is THE place to kick your boring 9-5 to the curb and start doing what you love for a living.

Unless you like your day job. Then ignore this post.

But, if you’re looking for a way out… or a way to never go there in the first place… here’s your ticket.

And, once you take control of your time and your money… if you wanna take Fridays off, you sure as hell can.

See you over there.
