The Ideal Skillset
Astro, the Progressive App framework, uses modern development tools, new programming language features, and intermediate development concepts. This means that Astro was developed with an intermediate Web Engineer in mind. Don’t worry, if you don’t have a few of the requirements below, chances are you can quickly acquire the skills to feel comfortable building an Astro app (we have some recommended 3rd-party courses below to get you started). However, if you find yourself answering "no" to more than one or two requirements below, it may mean you’ll have a difficult time working with Astro.
