Its no secret that the
webdev world is currently riddled with byzantine amount of complexities in all areas like frameworks, libraries, standards, coding languages, markup languages, build systems, documentation systems, container and virtualization systems, database management, machine learning and statistics, etc.
Now, a large company or think tank has the luxury to hire hundreds of smart technical experts in all of these areas but a solo freelancer dude doesn't have that luxury, right?
As a freelancer, how do you cope up with all this? In order to be competitive in today's cut-throat competition in freelancing, you must have the knowledge of at least little bit of all these areas.
As these complexities become even more nuanced in the coming decades, do you think that freelance coding will finally be a dead field? There are limitations to how much a single dude can learn or grasp after all, you can't keep up with everything that's going on everywhere. Where do you see the future of freelance programming going in this regard?
