Do all the things like ++ or -- rants, post your own rants, comment on others' rants and build your customized dev avatarSign Up
just do anything what you like or think is interesting. There will be companies interested in whatever you do.
If you want to know where the highest demand for people is, I would say it's frontend guys.
I already do frontend and I am good at it, it's just that I want to be able to use and build a varieties of skills for the time being. In order for me to take a leap towards companies where I can continue to thrive.
If I understood you right, you were asking me whether I want to continue with frontend, well, yes, in a fullstack context, where I'd mess with the backend services and still interfere with the frontend companies.
I just want to break free a bit.
The right context would be some sort of startup who has a main service, a core library on which the whole team works, and still work on the frontend as well...
@jshrt as far as I kmow startups mostly are looking for the newest technology stacks.
Since I'm a pure frontend guy I can give you only advise for this topic. Do some react/vue/newest-framework stuff, use TypeScript for more joy in codindg. If you want to do quality, you might want to do some CI stuff with travis and write lots of tests.
