I knew I wanted to go into web development when I realized I could write some code and see immediate results. It made web development seem very easy to approach for a newbie (and of course I'm referring to the interpreted languages).
Of course now I still do prefer web, especially since I can make the UI basically however I want to. But I also understand there are benefits to using back-end languages that compile. But now I may not have time enough to dive into them either. 🤷
Oh, let me add that being a developer means that I'm unlikely to break something physical that would then need to be replaced (unlike if I were a computer technician). Lol
That immediate feedback is what drew me in as well!
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
