Discussion on: Why I Hate Frontend

I would advise you to try to stop pouring your emotions into technology. It has no feelings towards you, but instead, it slowly wraps itself around you to engulf and digest you inside its webbed and ever-changing body. As you struggle more, it just entangles itself firmly and drains the life essence at a faster pace...

But this is probably not technology but our old friend - human rut.

If you struggle with something, take a step back and try to understand why do you struggle. Identify what areas of knowledge you are weak in and try to break your weeks to measure how you will practice these to improve. You don't have to be perfect, accept to be good enough to do your job.

I used to tinker with the front end, but I didn't really enjoy it that much. Nowadays, I prefer to stick with data and automation, not because I love it, but I least dislike it. My interests are cognitive, behavioural sciences and computational psychology, so I try to read about this stuff at leisure.

Try different things to find out where you could see yourself in a couple of years. You don't have to beat yourself up on a path that you don't enjoy. Good luck.
