As a developer, 25 years old and I’m 3 years in this industry about to get laid of by february 22, has a family to feed, quite higly paid as of today but I really can’t stop worrying about the future
Can I even send my kids to college when I’m competing against the whole world with my skills set 10-30 years from now? where there is a new technology to learn and those kids are way cheaper and more plentiful than me?
I currently made it big since the niche of cordova + ionic + angularjs provides but since my contract is ending and I just can’t go back to earning low to gain experience with .NET, Java or Ruby on rails.
I really hate the lack of job security in this industry, hell I’m even in a third world country, even if I immigrated I know that the jobs there are being outsourced here and we’re getting ripped off big time, Just imagine I’m only receiving 50% of what my client pays my company
I really wish I could remake my college days and learned medicine instead, even if you don’t get paid that much you’d still get prestige,respect and eventually money.
God damn it I Hate our industry
And also fuck agile,
