Hi guys,

I work for a web developer on a support team, and it's massively advantageous for me to be able to read code. That and I have a desire to lean as things go, as I have a few things I have wanted to do with it for a long time.

So my background so far is that I know HTML and CSS, older and newer versions and can do some responsive design techniques etc too. I have a little bit of Bootstrap4 under my belt too, though this is rusty and could do with refreshing, especially to make my life easier, as I am by no means a front end developer...

I was wondering if it's going to be better for me to go straight in to things like DOM, Laravel, PHP, and which I should jump in to first, and followed by what? I have a basic understanding of the syntax for PHP and JS, understanding basic functions, variatbles, arrays etc, but definitely need to think of some project based work that would assist in getting me to learn this. Where would some of you more experienced guys reccomend that I move to next?

If anyone would like to assist in any way, by all means, let me know, I am always receptive to feedback, be it idea's for a project that will help me grasp something, be it a mentor, be it anything at all!

Thanks :)

Learn whatever technologies your team uses? Seems you want to learn full stack web dev for yourself, but you mention it's for your work. If it is for your work obviously you need to learn what they're using. If it's just for yourself, you can get by with JUST html/css/js using popular stacks like MERN/MEAN.
Angular uses typescript but it's quite easy to learn after javascript and actually very good to learn anyways.

Thanks for the response. For work it would be advantageous to know PHP and JS, but I have a desire to learn full stack anyway, was just wanting an idea on what to learn first of all.

Not sure what type of contribution that was but thanks?

Still iso a bit of feedback on what would be a better route to take. Been a bit of a busy one and not had time to do more learning in the meantime, but the reason I am asking these things atm is more related to a project I have in mind to learn. Can either be done in JS or PHP language bases (and their frameworks). Just wanted to get a heads up on what you thought would be a better process.
