I'm always searching for more information about and on coding, but I always get this sense of "inferority". Like people know way more about this stuff than I do, and I could never be a really good coder without atleast 5+ years of practice.
Does that feeling ever go away as a coder? Or is this just something you come to live with and expect?
Dude, here's some solid life advice here:
You will get better as you learn more. & You're not stupid. So, yes, you're not going to be as good as people with 5 years of experience until you get 5 years of experience, but you are not generally inferior. Try to understand some theory and then work on projects. Over time, work on doing more and more complex projects. Try to have fun with it but keep pushing the envelope. You want your new project to be more difficult or challenging in some way than you're most recently-completed project.
Don't compare yourself to others, just let your work speak for you. Ignore the syntax-divas and dogmatic SOB's.
There's too many people that pose as "designers" because they know how to use the tools. Just enjoy being creative and have an open mind.
And no, you never stop learning, you get acquainted with one technology and x10 more come up!!
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?
Thank you guys for the reply. I actually already have a gaming project i'm working on. I would show it off, but I would prefer to do so "when its ready".
Thanks for the positive feedback and advice. =)
Don't worry about that. If u interested in coding so much - just go for it! I see, u have your own project now. Congratulations! I'll share u a link, here http://djangostars.com/blog/how-to-choo ... -overview/ u can take some advices about development. Good luck!
Thanks William! Things are going off pretty good! I'm happy with my progress so far. My wife is taking coding lessons now at school so hopefully we can be 2 little nerds coding together.
Coding is the only way out of misery...The real money is there...
Even in India, a good coder is paid over 50k USD but he saves a lot due to cost of living so his salary is equal to around 75k..
In Philippines the salary is 250k Pesos...per month for NodeJS developer,,,,,INSANE...same as silicon valley if you take cost of living and taxes...
It does not matter with experience...That's wrong attitude...Its the RIGHT SKILL SET THAT MATTERS...Your location also does not matter
The machines are taking over ....we are feeding the beast and one day as Al bielek said, with enough power any computer can have a mind of its own...
For Indians. For Westerners, the real money is not there, because Indians are doing it. The way they are doing it sucks, but the executives who hired them will have received their bonuses and run with the money before the inevitable tech collapse due to their incompetence happens, so who cares? Well, the rest of us, I guess.
Backend development usually plays an extremely important role in the whole process of the project building. But sometimes, the beginners, while being surprised with a variety of opportunities and languages, which may help you to achieve what you need, tend to make lots of really bad mistakes.
