Sid200670957dwhoa whoa, take it easy my friend. You don't get to call an industry "dead end" if you're not able to get a job in it.
Remember, your humbleness and positive vibes is a trait that many recruiters look for in interviews.
You can be a world-class elite coder, but if your attitude is as shitty as this post, you're not getting placed anywhere.
stackodev1238457d@electrineer Most of us specialize in something or other. WordPress, despite its flaws, has to have _some_ merit because it runs on so many websites. The attitude that WordPress isn’t worth working with is the technology-first approach that doesn’t address the long-tail business needs of a huge swath of website owners who just want to publish content on a widely-used platform without having to pay a dev each time they want to add an image or a post.
a nice and humble attitude goes a long way.
I can't say I've noticed it makes any difference !
Nanos1160257dMaybe you just need to move overseas. :-)
Sadly, not the only industry that outsources. :-(
Maybe you just love programming ?
Trade jobs are always in demand though.
And just sometimes, they need a programmer to fix things. :-)
So, if I had gone back in time and spent more time on programming, I'd still have been unemployed tons, just with more ability to write my own games and applications !
I hope programming evolves into more of a trade and removes the corporate aesthetic. With all the labor jobs I’ve worked, at least there is a direct correlation between hard work and your status and minimal politics. Corporate culture definitely has a role, but it’s stressed too much. If I had an agency we would have morning workout sessions as part of the job, and nobody but programmers would work there.
