Discussion on: I think I'm falling out of love with front end web dev

You really have pinned the exact feeling that I have been experiencing for the last few months now as a web developer at a creative/marketing agency. I have also started to look into other sides of programming but haven't settled on one yet. I want to try game programming, but I too felt I wouldn't be good enough. But your article has inspired me to actually try it out; it would make sense since I have always played video games my entire life. Without knowing too much of your story, but I would think that getting a jr role in the gaming side of things shouldn't equate to a junior salary for you since you are already a proven professional in the software industry. That definitely should count for something. Well, I would hope. Either way good luck and thanks for the inspiring and relevant article.

Thanks for your reply, it's glad to know that there are people who feel the same way. Yeah I hope if I went into the game industry I wouldn't be a jr but that stuff does look quite complicated we'll see how it goes. Also if you're thinking about doing gaming as a hobby I can't recommend Haxe/HaxeFlixel enough, it's quite an easy game engine to get into for a JS/TS dev. I'll be happy to help if you have any questions.
