If you read my About page, you will see that when I choose Computer Science as a major I did so because I enjoyed it — NOT because I thought it would be a good career move. In fact, I was actually wondering what I would do to make a living after I left college.
Well, it turned out I didn’t have to wonder too hard. If you enjoy software development you are very lucky. For you will be in a profession where you have the opportunity to always pick the work you want to do, choose the location you want to work, select the people you want to work with, and select the salary level you are comfortable recieving (this last one sounds odd, but keep in mind stress appears to grow exponentially with your salary).
The key is to be committed to self-improvement. Always stay in touch with what the market demands, and you will find yourself always being in demmand.
