Becoming a freelance web developer: six month skills review

I’m now six months into my skills review process. In the last three months, I’ve been working on the comprehensive Free Code Camp front-end web developer certification course – a 500-hour web dev boot camp. 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.
