We’ve gone a long way since the first “digital nomad” Steve Roberts in 1983 rode on a computerized recumbent bicycle. He was then featured in the Popular Computing magazine as he embarked on a 1,400 miles journey while still maintaining his writing career…
Wow, it looks like you wrote this article thinking on me ☺
Thanks for that.
Just finished school and it’s really difficult to find a job when you have no experience. Sometimes i think it would be better if i quit and continue working as cleanner ☹
Nobody wants a developer without at least one year of experience here in Belgium.
I would be interested in seeing the data you collected while researching this topic, it sounds they could be interesting as hell.
Even though this is definitely a useful article for many people, honestly I’d say you rolled up your sleeves to scratch a surface of the topic. I’m really curious to read more.
Great list, I agree with it in many aspects. If I had to include just one more option in it, I'd include Go. In my opinion, the future for this language is incredible: it is really fast, very easy to distribute because all you have in the end is just a binary, very fun to work with and it's not so hard to learn…
As a college student who’s majoring in Software Engineering, your message struck me so hard! I’ve been learning Java for a half year now(well, i sometimes stopped doing for one of two months lol) and I often fall into thoughts like ‘ oh my word, i will never able to finish this!’.
Yes!!! Myth #1 stopped me time and time again from continuing how to learn. I was surrounded by people who I thought lived and breathed and loved programming, which I didn’t, and so I gave up. I finally talked myself out of that nonsense and am now programming at work, and I would urge newbies to keep going even if they think they will never love it…
