Hey, I‘m on the same road! I did my degree in physical engineering and now I learned so much about javascript, css, react.js just in a couple of months. What I can recommend you is to check out cleverprogrammer on youtube. They will motivate you to go further with web development 🚀

I'm also studying electrical engineering and I have also got this thought sometimes that if I had a chance (I wish I had) I would leave it and go for web development because there's so much I have learned during this ample time in the pandemic ....I just became a Full-Stack Web Developer can you believe it...like I just grew so much love in coding that I just enrolled up in a course and almost 90% completed it. I mean Damn!

Eyy nice man! I had to make the switch because I wanted to do something I'm passionate about for my career. Also, knowing how to code will make you a valuable asset even in EE jobs! Stand out in your company by creating mini software solutions for them👊🏾😁

I'm with you here, it is so much fun to learn code and to see right on screen what you achieved with some complex but logical programms. In the moment as you understand more of web dev you see there is much more to learn with upcoming new technologies. In physics you don't have that. You just rely on old theories and your highlight at the end of the day is that you were allowed to solder something :D
Don't get me wrong, I love physics and watch astro docus about the universe like "One Strange Rock", but coding is so much more fun :P
