becoming a freelance Web Developer: six month skills review.

Published:

I'm now six months into my skills review process. In the last three months I've been working through the comprehensive Free Code Camp front-end web developer certification course - a 500 hour web dev bootcamp. This has already led to a significant improvement in 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.
