Take this as a life-saving advice and swallow the “red-pill”. Software is a dead-end career unless you are extroverted. It’s a technical area as opposed to functional. Learn a lot, earn a lot - within first 3–5 years - in order to improve your financial situation and invest aggressively (stocks and cryptos). If you have introverted tendencies, you have three options - gain charters in functional areas (finance / supply-chain) or move into techno-functional areas in enterprise systems (SAP / SAS / Oracle Financials / FactSet etc.) or find an “exit strategy”. In fact, I would aggressively suggest get a “secondary” career planned for contingency. As far as startups are concerned, don’t. Do your own non-tech side-business with a focus on cash-flow staying away from stressful, over-valued (hard to value a private company with a bleeding-bottom-line funded by easy-VC-money during a period of chronically-low interest-rate) , over-hyped and saturated commodity tech startups. Startups are overrated in software unless you have strong network/leadership/deal-making capabilities. Moreover startups were originally designed to work on tough-problems like decentralised governance (crypto) or novel drug delivery system (biotech), for example. Just don’t end up being a glorified engineer masqueraded as CTO in a “commodity” tech startup where founders are privileged with MBA without much operational-experience/engineering. Life is too short to stuck in those kind of startups. BTW, stop being influenced by media-induced brainwash about Zuckerberg or Gates. You have no idea (unless you read history objectively) how privileged they were and how much important role it played in their success. Coding talent were not so much.

>> No.11083656

So in summary: earn as much money in first 5 years, invest aggressively, get a side business going (pref non-tech) to teach yourself business skills including marketing and sales, get a secondary hobby/career going, try to gain charters in functional areas (finance-CFA etc) and plan an exit-strategy. Watch out for Automation and ML. Don’t ruin your life being fascinated by “good code”/“awesome architecture”/“beautiful asynchronous patterns”/”fantastic AWS toolset”. They eventually do not matter to business (what matters is competitive advantage and ROE; if you are into stocks, would highly recommend this amazing book to deep-dive on sustainable competitive advantage - The Little Book That Builds Wealth: The Knockout Formula for Finding Great Investments: Pat Dorsey) and to your precious life.

I'm self taught after a couple of years of grinding, I make $80k as a senior dev at a small company.
1. Focus on problem solving skills.
2. Look for smaller companies with business problems you can solve. These companies don't care what tech you know, they're looking for someone to listen to them and solve their problems.
3. Don't be an autist. To make good money, you have to be providing value. Sitting in a dark room by yourself and coding doesn't provide value. A lot of days, I solve business problems by making suggestions that don't involve any code.
4. Code is about business is about customers. I'm a mediocre programmer but I make more money than anyone else in my office because I'm not a shithead. I can walk into the CEO's office any time I want and shoot the breeze, my co-workers prefer to be in their own world.

I don't get it, I graduated with a 2.2 GPA in CS and I got a job offer straight after graduation and have been working for 2 years. OP is probably a better dev than I am.

Irrelevant. Javascript is a shit language, but it runs on everything (given that you can target browsers as if they were a virtual machine) & it has libs to do everything. You shouldn't even NEED to be hiring "integration specialists" etc any more, it's all just rest APIs & json. So why write the same application in platform specific languages without a large pool of coders to draw on or reinvent the wheel for 1000000th time? Just write the whole damn thing in Javascript (or a language that either transpiles to it or compiles to Web Assembly) and be done with it. Need it to be desktop? Done. Clientside browser Web app? Done. Mobile app? Done. Makes things much simpler.

Lel, keep dreaming. My last 4 contracts were scrapping Java Spring & Asp apps that got overengineered into the ground and rebuilding em with Node in about 1/10th the time. Clients don't give a fuck about language purity, concurrency support or anything else codemonkeys worry about, they just want it to work.

This. Businesses care about results. They aren't going to waste resources just to make an application 20% faster on top of it being a maintenance nightmare several years down the road for the sake of satisfying the programmer's autism.

Fair point. Know how many apps I've needed a decent, true multithreaded solution for, beyond the shitty Nodejs single-threaded but non-blocking model in the past few years? 0. If I did I'd write that component in Clojure or Go or whatever the latest flavour of the month is - but it's just not needed. Math libs are about the only thing that needs that heavily, and the existing libs are good enough I have 0 need to do it myself.

>>11092428

This guy gets it. I still use Lisp at home for my personal projects (mainly just me fucking around being an autist), and I've really enjoyed getting into Haskell recently, but the business case for Node-everything is just too strong. Younger me cared, older me who now runs a dev shop understands that shipping a working & reliableproduct is the only thing that matters. If that means using the crappy meme-language Mozilla invented for marketing reasons, so be it.

This, x9000. There is one and only one purpose to software, and that's to implement & automate a business process in a way that's usable. Not how nice the semantics are, not whether it implements a Turing-complete type system, not whether it's "functionally pure", not even if it's 10% faster to run (and 2000% longer to code & maintain). This is why project managers and such make more money than most coders & the mark of a senior dev is simply that they solve the problem in the fastest & simplest way possible. Too many programmers can't get the above through their smelly, autistic little heads.

Lol if you go on Indeed nearly all the job postings are asking for some sort of web stack or cloud engineering person. I rarely see anything that asks for C or C++. I took a few classes in college that were in C and enjoyed them, but I never see job postings for that type of software so there’s no point in spending my time honing my skills in those languages unless for a hobby. One thing that makes webdev a challenge is there’s so much churn in whatever’s the most popular library/framework you can never get comfortable. Staying up to date is a bitch.
