Also, maybe I'll enjoy front end more after I learn it and will find that I have enough skills to be a front end developer first before a full stack developer.  

Don't they use javascript for back end as well though?


If you backend is written properly, you could have zero knowledge of the frontend and still program.  If JavaScript is ever (rightly) used in the backend, I'm familiar with it.

This is a very interesting thread.  I struggle horribly with eclipse, maven and the frameworks I must work with (Eclipse RCP, karaf, Apache Aries Blueprint).  The tools hide what is happening and although through trial and error I can get things to work, I never feel like I have a good understanding of what is happening.  I would do ANYTHING to be able to really understand these technologies.  If I read the OSGi specification (and I have TRIED) it is gibberish to me.  Every explanation is in terms of something that I do not understand.  It feels like it is speaking in circles.  Most of the time I feel like I am living in a nightmare.  My husband won't let me quit my job.  I am ready to commit hari kari or get a job as a janitor.  SOMETHING where I understand a portion of what I am being asked to do.  I'm not sure how anyone figures out this stuff.

In any case, this udemy course did help me to understand many things I did not understand before:

Good course where you can actually follow along
