It Worths to Be a Web Developer in 2021?
I am a professional with over 30 years of experience. This means that I entered the market before there were web developers.
The moment I had my first contact with the internet, I was fascinated.
I decided that I wanted to work with it. And it has been my livelihood for decades.
I always find people asking if it’s worth being a Web Developer.
I divide the answer into 2 aspects:
If you have a vocation to be a web developer, you already have the answer. That’s what will make you happy. It doesn’t matter my opinion. Period.
When asked if it is worthwhile to be a web developer in 2021, the financial question is implicit. At least most of the time.
The short answer is that yes, it worths to be a web developer in 2021. And it will be worth it in the years to come.
The market is growing.
The pandemic has not had much impact in this area. In some cases, there was a positive impact.
I like to look at my Linkedin. I receive new proposals.
The long answer is that it depends.
There is an ecosystem of knowledge that you need to master. It will only succeed if it manages to dominate much of that ecosystem.
Otherwise, it will be difficult for you. Even though there are open positions.
This knowledge evolves as technology evolves.
What you knew last year may not be enough for this year.
So, it will only be worth it if you always want to continue learning.
This is part of what I said before, about vocation.
If you have a vocation, the market will put excellent projects on your path. It worths to be a web developer in 2021.
For people who are thinking about investing and entering this market in 2021, the answer is the same.
