I am a simple web developer in India, by far I have not contributed enough to any open source, not a consistent member of any community. Looks like there is a lot to learn. But what would you do, if your syllabus is increasing day by day. That’s the fear I am talking about. What I did til now is follow some good people on twitter, completed my Front End Certificate in FreeCodeCamp(which I am proud of, almost 10000 hrs of coding), created a blog where I put my day to day learning(jforjs.com), few videos in Youtube. I know, I know. This is not enough.
I am glad that I choose this path, and its great to be fearful. It has more pros than cons. Find this article in medium.
