Goals – Improve front-end development skills

Due Date: 12/31/2021


Supporting GMP APIs requires a solid grounding in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Also, we often see customers developing their websites using the React library.

I propose to upgrade my front end development skills by:

  1. completing LinkedIn Learning Path “Become a Junior WordPress Developer”, developing a WordPress child theme (complete by July 31), and developing a WordPress theme from scratch (complete by August 31)
  2. completing a selection (TBD) of LInkedIn Learning courses in modern (vanilla) JS, and implement a web page enhanced with modern vanilla JavaScript (complete by October 31)
  3. complete LInkedIn Learning Paths “Become a React Developer” and “Improve Your React Skills”, and implement a web page using React.js (complete by December 31)
