I don't want to do front-end anymore
I started coding when I was 14, around 2007 or so. The very first thing I wrote was HTML, then CSS. I liked making stupid little web pages containing youtube embeds and guest books (anyone remembers those?) full of marquees, blinks and gifs. Lots of gifs. The pages were very simple, but joyful to make and also to use. At the time I had no idea that you could make any money with making web pages, I simply thought it was a silly hobby people could have.
Now, don't forget we also want to style our project, but if you thought you could get away with writing good ol' CSS, you were wrong. We no longer write CSS, because it's lame. We now write SCSS instead, so that we could write dynamic stylesheets that convert to CSS, because of course 99% of the web needs that.
But enough of the hating. If I wanted I could hate on anything most likely, and the web has come a long way since 2007, in lots of good ways, and I don't want to discredit that. I suppose with the increase of complexity in what we want to achieve on the web the stack to achieve it with has had to also increase in complexity. For me, personally, it's too much. I want to have a personal life and not have to spend my nights reading up on some new flavour of *.js in fear that if I don't I would soon be made irrelevant. I don't want to learn nor use a million different tools. I don't want to know a bit about everything and a lot about nothing.
Thus, I don't want to do front-end development anymore. The joy is gone. I've given in my resignation at my current place of employment and will be seeking an exclusively back-end role for my next adventure, starting April. The language doesn't matter much to me, I know enough of them to know that they are all very similar and thus easy enough to learn. If you know of a good opportunity, let me know.
