re: What is YOUR ultimate goal that you want to achieve as a developer? VIEW POST


As a preface: I love software development, I do it because I love it. I'm completely self taught and I learned it because it was fascinating to me. I love geeking out with other developers about ES6 and React. That being said, as I get further into my career, the it becomes a means to an end. In some senses I think it should be, it's a tool. You never see a builder endless using a hammer just to mindlessly nail things to a 2x4 just because they love to hammer. They wouldn't building anything. Yet sometimes as developers I feel like we can become so focused on the tech, we lose sight of the fact that the tech exists to help us build products. At the vest least this has been true of myself in the past. So that's my ultimate goal as a developer: I want to build and sell products that help people to be their best selves.
