If I could only offer one piece of advice to a new web development student, it would be: “don’t worry; we all feel overwhelmed.” I’d then remind him or her that I, too, am still a student, and so are all of my peers. This industry is an incredibly tough one that requires constant continued education throughout your career. You better be okay with this truth.
You’ll never graduate. You’ll never know it all. But, if you love it enough, none of that will matter. In fact, you’ll crave education.
