Updates to the Full-Stack, Front-End, and Back-End Career Paths

Good news! We're updating our three Web Development Career Paths with new content.

Why?

The curriculum team at Codecademy has heard your feedback and has developed new content to supplement the existing Web Development Career Paths. In some cases, we will replace existing content; in others, we will be adding new items.

The changes will be applied across the Full-Stack Engineer, Front-End Engineer, and Back-End Engineer Career Paths.

How does this impact you?

If you've already completed a Path, you will maintain that completion and certificate.

If you're currently in-progress with one of the updated sections, you may see a change in progress. We suggest that you take the now-incomplete content–even if you have learned the concepts before, revisiting them will solidify them in memory.

When?

The Paths will be updated on Friday, March 12, 2021.
