When I was starting my career as a software developer, I had a lot of ups and downs.
There were moments when I was learning a lot, making progress, and I was excited about building a new career in software.
Then, there were moments when I felt overwhelmed. There was a lot to learn and the road felt really long. I sometimes doubted myself and I really questioned if I was on the right career path at all.
Even after I started my first real job as a developer, on most days I still felt like I had no idea what I was doing. My co-workers seemed to be way ahead of me. I worried that I was too slow. I wondered if my work was good enough or not.
I pushed through. I kept going. And, despite making every career mistake possible, I survived and eventually built a real career as a developer.
I created Developer Mission as a resource for new developers looking to build a solid, fulfilling career in the software world.
There's a lot that I wish I had known when I was starting out. I was practically clueless. But I did have one thing on my side: I really wanted to make it work. I really wanted to make a career making software.
What does it take to build a career in software development?
It takes effort and perseverance. But there's a path, and you're not alone. I've done it. Others have done it. It's possible and achievable. And it can be very rewarding.
More people than ever are switching careers to go into the software industry. The reasons are good: there's lot of demand, and it's a field that will continue to grow. Demand for people who know how to create and manipulate software is going up and this trend not going to stop.
But it's not an easy path. There's a lot to learn and it can become intimidating and overwhelming pretty fast.
Even experienced developers get overwhelmed with the fast pace of technology.
