Discussion on: Are Front-End Developers Happy?

To be overqualified is to exceed the skills needed for a certain job. But someone with a computer science education isn't overqualified because front-end development requires a different set of skills. The back-end developer I worked with for many jobs had two left feet when it came to front end development, and nobody would hire him to do that job.

My point in the article is if you do feel that you are overqualified (which, you're likely not), then you'll find unhappiness working in front-end development due to resentment.
