becoming a freelance Web Developer: nine month skills review.

Published:

I'm now nine months into my web dev skills review process. In the last three months I've continued to work through the comprehensive Free Code Camp front-end web developer certification course - a 500 hour web dev bootcamp. I've now completed the course and gained my certification. This course has significantly improvemed my core skills. Skills that have improved since my last skills review are marked with an up arrow ↑. Scores are out of 5 with 1 being little knowledge, 2 being basic understanding, 3 being good general knowledge, 4 being solid professional level knowledge, and a score of 5 being subject expert knowledge.
