Also, from what I've learned so far, most of the front end frameworks using MV-Whatever which means they're not exactly MVC like traditional software development.
Edit: here's the course

Hey man, I know a lot of people like to link to other resources when it comes to answering questions BUT this is the course that really taught me how to think about different objects on a site/app and how they interact.
I believe this is using ES5 (maybe updated to ES6) but the course itself goest through the process of converting an unorganized code base into structured oop js.

Hey there, I'm still a bit of a noob myself (been self-studying for about 2 years and working as a Front End Dev for 6 months), but I would definitely recommend making sure you have a solid understanding of ES6, as well as how to use higher-order functions like map, reduce, and filter effectively. I spent a lot of time bashing my head against React before realizing that I was trying to learn too many things at once: all the new ES6 syntax and functional-lite programming techniques, as well as the way React actually works. And it just wasn't sinking in (nevermind Redux).

Entry-Level Job hunting
Is it enough to land an Entry-Level Developer job? Is there a minimum requirements for qualifying as a dev? I asked this cause i rarely got replies on my email application(could be my resume tho). and also is it worth changing language as most jobs here in my country wants PHP instead of Python. Here are the lessons on the course on Udacity. I would also appreciate it if you could suggest another course to follow or take to help me become better.
Part 1: Developer Tools
Part 2: Databases with SQL & Python
Part 3: Servers, Authorization, and CRUD
Part 4: Deploying to Linux Servers
Im now at "Authentication & Authorization"

Today I stand proud here: My first MVO app(I need your help/suggestions)
I'm learning programming on my own for some time now, I made few apps here and there but that was spaghetti type of code, it was rather painful to make, incredibly hard to debug and impossible to extend.
Now this journey was rather hard for me as I'm chef by profession so I learned everything from 0, dedication and hard work, every day even when I felt like shit I wrote little bit of code.
I was rather confused how to organize my code to be able to extend it with not so much effort, I refused to believe programing is that hard, and after some research I found about this great tutorial on udacity, after a while I had 'a ha moment', and here is my MVO type 'cat clicker app'. I got inlove with MVO.
I would be incredibly grateful if you can give me some suggestions how to improve my code, my design or anything too obvious to you that can help me become better programmer.
EDIT: uploaded codepen
Just short introduction:
This is toy app where I demonstrated and learned some rather neat technique and oo design, when I started I had 0 clue how to load the cats from object in the DOM, then I figured out to do it with ID's. Learned a lot from udacity tutorial on design patterns.
What is really amazing about this tutorial is they make you write your own code first and then they show you examples how you could do that in better way. I wrote this app in my spaghetti/noob way.
Mostly I had problems with having many mistakes what data I was expecting, I was using console.log a lot to determine that.
APP: Basically you have list of cats, and every time you click on the list that cat is rendered on the screen with its name and number of clicks, every time you click on the big cat img, counter increase.
Very interesting thing for me was implementing 'admin' section(you can change img/name/num clicks as you see fit) after I wrote basic design. I extended my code, added new feature if you will, that was the most amazing experience ever, because I finally realized how easy is to do that, and how my code is robust and super awesome :D, was proud for a minute and then I was back solving some bugs.

Your plan is perfect. All webpages come down to html, css, and Js so learn those well. Php is in demand so worth learning if you want a job. Node is in demand. Python is great for learning to code.
For learning to code (not web dev specifically), this course is a bit challenging: (It is free don't pay for the certificate.)
Udacity has some good free classes:
