Fundamentals path

I was thinking of finishing the fundamentals which covers java, data structures, and design patterns. I’m just finishing the front end path which covers JS and i was wondering.

  1. Should I do the fundamentals or should i just focus on building a portfolio to get a job.
  2. If yes, should I do all the Java to do the course? is it necessary having already learned JS?

For the 1st question do both but precedence goes to the portfolio. Recruiters and rather tech leads will rather consider that before the fact you took any course.

I don’t understand the 2nd question.
JS (JavaScript which is by the way different from Java) is a web language. Should you aim at making web apps then JS is a big asset.

Hope this helps
