I am coming from a web development background with a mix of frontend (not an advanced one, mostly writing markup+css+custom js) and backend development (lamp stack, CMS[Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla]). Now i am doing Java EE development, working with web services (SOAP, REST) and some other stuff like DevOps.
I receive, as most developers, a lot of job offers, interviews, etc...but they differ as sometimes they see my profile and offer me a frontend position and other times they ask me to come as a backend dev (i assume by seeing my current position).
I just don't get my head around this issue of deciding between the two sides: i have some personal inclination towards the frontend but i am finding interesting backend too and cannot choose between the two.
What is your view on this issue? Seeing the market, the future of the current technologies and by your personal experience how would you manage to decide on this issue?
How have you decided your career, your job? Did the job chose you or made a rational decision about it?
