The first question I ever asked myself when considering moving into the tech industry was, “Where do I go first?”. This proved to be a good question with WAY to many answers, and as a result, I was often left with even more questions than I started with. Doubly so when the welcome wagon from the overall community read “RTFM” (Read The Fricking Manual)… right… but which one? Since that time so very many years ago I have found that things have changed drastically in that respect.
Front-End Web Development:
You have probably guessed it by now but this role is a combination of both of the above roles and also has its time and place, most employers love to come across suitable Full-Stack developers as they have a slightly more versatile skill set but, this like most has it’s ups and down too.
From here I will leave you with a few words for thought, first I strongly advocate for following your truest passion, but ALWAYS leave room for a change in preference. I would also say that a couple of important factors one might want to consider when trying to decide is, location, responsibilities, what’s in demand near you, average pay, and most importantly… WILL YOU ENJOY IT? Yeah, you won’t ALWAYS know that answer, but if you have an idea… trust it at least enough to dig a little deeper before leaping into the deep end just yet! Comments, questions and or suggestions are more than welcome! (next post “The Full Web Dev Journey”)
