Coding: The End?

I'm tired


It's good people work hard for the right livelihood! Having studied and trained in computer studies and programming, I know how fast and much this industry can and have changed. For a good and steady lifestyle, I hope people have a consistent, good-paying harmless work, without having to worry about making enough or when will be the next payout. Alas, this is not a work or industry that I wish anyone to take upon as a career or even hobby because of its fast-changing needs and development. While I'm glad people learn logic and systematic way of thinking, but there may be way too much change and dynamism to the point of restlessness - NOT likely something you want or can DO five, ten, twenty months/years down or in your retirement. One may not feel tired right now, but he should or will be.  Who is getting younger and should/can one compete with more and more quick-minded and talented teens? And progression of development in future may only get faster, more complex and harder. 

Another way of looking:  How many senior developers out there still have the energy, health and edge to compete with capable, young minds? Even if one still have a job despite senior discrimination at work, can one's hard work really justify both to others and in conscience the quality is at par with smart teens? And for how long? There will be a time when we will feel tired eventually. And by then, when we look back on the nature of our work, which ones are more valuable and easily replicable as a beneficial, useful skill - coding or art? Would you rather pass on beautiful art appreciation or historic javascript and html codes to your future generations?

Learn Javascript Free Course Online with Free Code Camp (Part 5)



Important: Follow an authentic, comprehensive course that CAN be broken down into quality bytes of minutes for practise each day!

There is not much point investing your time, effort and money in some endeavours going nowhere. Be productive and diligent. Have a worthy purpose - Be kind to others is of utmost importance.

Whether it is sketching, piano, writing, inkscape or programming, the amount of research just to get the right roadmap (book / course) is so crucial yet time-consuming. This simply cannot be compromised. As a self-learning adult, there is no other way to skip this essential process to success.

Quality is key. Yes you may follow other resources to supplement your learning but do stick to a good Freecodecamp  roadmap in the long run. Stay focused.
