I think I need to get away from web development...

Honestly, no grudge held against web/mobile development itsef... But the projects, the teams, the workflows... It's always shitty af.

I'm fed up with the bad architecture, poor management decisions, unmaintained legacy code, broken windows, arrogant juniors, arrogant seniors, code smells left to rot, the freaking red door... Hell! The fucking "we don't have time for that" answer to testing... Damn!

Been there done that.

Feels like it's always the same crap and unfortunately, it's rare to start a professional project from scratch.

Fucking angular, broken piece of shit.
Fucking react (& RN) community modules, broken pieces of shit.
Fucking lazy-ass node developers.
Fucking ES and fucking garbage proposals submitted to the TC39.

I wish I could do Haskell / Rust / Clojure professionally... I could even enjoy Go with a good team... Anything but that huge pile of dogshit JS and its community of brainfucked so-called developers.

    @irene that's exactly what I should do; move to a fully remote position with system programming languages. Reconnect with my roots.

    I've made the same experience a long time ago. Probably you should think about why you've started to programm and continued it.

    Try something new you haven't done before. It sure can still be related to programming. Challenge yourself. Find something you are spending hrs with. There is so much to learn in this world.

    I don't think you will ever find your dream job. :3

    Because all the issues you mentioned are caused by humans or about humans. And humans exist pretty much every where. 😁
