Originally I would have said frontend, no question. But the more I've worked on backend, the more it's grown on me. It's hard to compare the two, but I'd have to say backend is the winner at this point.
Interesting! Yes, I definitely understand the feeling of "home" in a programming language - that's a great way to put it! :)
At the same time, you run the risk of being way too passive with your learning if you only stick with the familiar. That's why I feel like branching into C has helped me, because it's forced me out of my comfort zone and made me more comfortable with learning seemingly foreign things.
Maybe I should target something like Lisp next, for that purpose! Haha
Yes, there's definitely something to be said about that. I did the SICP videos (the original ones are on youtube!) early in my career - and that was really helpful in seeing that there are other types of programming paradigms, other than OO :)
I'll have to check them out! Thank you very much for the recommendation.
Thank you so much!
