OP here. I have an internship at a company right now working with Java (Eclipse Plugin Development) and I am a little frustrated that my project-manager is only interested in "visible" results. You can spend 2 weeks optimizing your code, but when at the end there are little visible changes from the user perspective, you won't get any credit at all. Meanwhile front-end guys moving a <div> into a better looking position just have to open the browser and show the result.
This is the reason I want to work in front end.

Full time webdev using all of those here:

It is such a wild industry. It ranges from working in someone's basement for less than minimum wage to working in some of the top corporations in the world. If you know more specific or niche technologies you can shorten that gap and get somewhere really good, but knowing general webdev technologies can make you fairly versatile.


I am a Jr. Dev at a fairly small Web dev company that is now focusing on making web apps for small companies. 37k CAD/year isn't bad and coming out of college and in a city where i bank about 1/3 of that is pretty good.

That's not what I asked though. I asked where do you live where you make 65k that isnt a livable wage? I don't know of a single college-level job in any of those cities that pays under livable wage. Fuck off with your hypotheticals

Try working for a company where every single minute you work has to be accounted for, and more than 10 minutes off on something starts to get some big questions asked. No time allowed for optimization, front end or back end. You simply get things done on time, shitty or now.

That is worse.

JS: learn Angular.js, it's the most mature client-side framework out there right now (it pays really well, too). You'll also need to at least have done a couple Todo List apps once in your life. Be acquainted with Backbone, Underscore, know how to write a jQuery plugin, tweak a carousel/slider's behavior, know how to a use the prototype. Ionic (an Angular mobile framework built on Cordova) is pretty cool. You might also want to look into Node.js, at least a build tool.

HTML: mess around with HTML5 elements. There are a lot of new
<input />
types, which are being leveraged by mobile development frameworks.

CSS: Learn responsive design and the ways you can use CSS3 to enhance UI. Bootstrap is becoming a thing of the past, but it's always good to know what .col-md-6 means when you're working on BS stuff. Let me save you months of bullshit: learn SASS.

PHP: Learn how servers and APIs work. This means you'll need to learn Apache or Nginx. Set up a few LAMP stacks on Digital Ocean or some cheap hosting. Learn that shit by heart, it's what separates the pros from the (ever growing population) amateurs. Be able to spin up a REST API with your tool of choice. Know MVC. PHP isn't going anywhere (Composer is pretty slick), but it's rare to hear about those developers making serious coin. .NET is where the money is, and you'll keep your sanity when C# saves you from your own bad habits. You can also use C# for other stuff. LINQ is a thing of beauty.

Getting a job isn't hard: the bar of entry is on the floor for most tech cities.

Web development isn't just a job, it's a lifestyle.

Useless. Everything is basically just a <div> anyway. If 90% of every element on your page isn't a <div> with a responsive width class, you're fucking up

>PHP: Learn how servers and APIs work

I have no problems with this

>Web development isn't just a job, it's a lifestyle.

No, its a job. Unless you're one of those cunts that comes to the office with a geeky funny programming joke on his tshirt and constantly spews memes all day trying to be funny.

Of everything on that image, the worse isn't even listed:
Business graduates. Worse than project managers. Had one once that listed a task to be done as 'Add provinces'. The work was expected to take 5 minutes, but required extensive reworking of the whole system. 20 hours later, they are saying 'wtf, why did it take so long?' meanwhile it required changing a lot of stuff, and event that stuff was legacy because the manager refused to put any budget into cleaning up code.

As someone who lives not in Toronto but nearby, these start ups are because the province is pushing greatly for 'entrepreneurs'. They want as many young people to make businesses as possible, especially out of college/university with access to what was only taught in school.
With programs like MSDNAA we get .NET shoved down our throats through school. Considering these kind of development environments cost most money, they take the budget of any startup.

Which is exactly why hipster fags don't write ASP .NET applications? Only sex demons and cool kids write C#

/g/, what can I do to convince my boss that SharePoint work is not worth pursuing? Keep in mind we've already lost our asses off on 4 previous SharePoint projects in the last 2 years and we don't have the manpower to maintain our own goddamn SharePoint intranet.
>>
>>45598108
If you want to work at a startup, go right ahead. Stress becomes a reality in this industry, those places will work you till you figure out you want a real life. The beer kegs in-house are to make sure you're there all night.

There are better options. Corporate work can be a good challenge to build your skillset, agencies are a good option if you're looking for short-term work and maybe doing PSD-to-HTML conversions. For me, contract work is where it's at: name your own rates and get shit done on your own terms. Avoid direct client stuff unless they know exactly what they want and have a lot of money to throw around.

Work those LinkedIn profiles and you'll be swimming in job offers. Make sure you have a GitHub account. Learn Git if you plan to work with teams and want to preserve your code. Be acquainted with the new hotness buzzwords and know what's going on in the industry.

>But everyone keeps insisting there's tons of money in SharePoint

Its a lot easier to pay Microsoft to do shit for you when you have billions

When you don't have billions and your projects & clients are more diverse, developing in-house tends to be the way to go

Pissing money away on SharePoint even after it has continually failed is a really, really poor decision

Tell your boss hes killing the company, then tell your best client how much you make and see if you can get poached

>But Microsoft is like a completely new world

What?

Most of the developers that started out on ASP had no problem transitioning to ASP .NET, and WebForms

Then when ASP .NET MVC rolled around they were the first to jump on the enterprise train and now they're rolling in cash

Microsoft is job security, no doubt

Java is too, but unless you're asian or brown, you're better off going Microsoft (or else you'll just get replaced by someone on an immigrant visa)

>>45598341
Everyone is still figuring out exactly what that means for the industry. C# is an extremely nice language, but Microsoft has quite a ways to go before they earn back the greater software community's trust

Angular makes shit so much easier than using plain JS/jQuery it's not even funny. Even if it is used in less places, finding a place that does use it would be worth the effort for your sanity.

Of course, my only front end experience is with plain JS/jQuery/Angular.

I think that what you were getting at with your post is that there are more important things to learn than javascript frameworks, if you're still starting out, which I don't disagree with.

Nigga, they're going to be major players in open source. They opened up their platform for a reason: competition.

Look up kestrel and you'll figure out what's going on. Joyent is a bunch of progressives with too much drama to rely on. Google will ditch you when it's convenient. MS will always be there.

I was hired out of college as a SharePoint developer without having any experience. While I am now using different frameworks and languages in my daily work I have worked on a good share of projects.

SharePoint sucks. It is trying to solve too many problems and its development team has no concept of what its customers want. It only succeeds at being a company wide document storage service. Other than that, it is not worth the high amount of bugs that arise from that product.

Convince them of how much production and development time it takes to fix the smallest problems. SharePoint has a DOM load time of 3 seconds and a page render time of 6 seconds on average. SharePoint's main Javascript file is the largest items to load and usually takes up the most time for each GET. Pages slow down for webparts added to the page, and for the "app model", you introduce a whole plethora of complexity. There needs to me a separate cross domain site that makes XHR request to get data from SharePoint just so that the app can be displayed in an iframe. I have tried as hard as possible to optimize these calls, but the usual load time is 3-6 seconds on a page. In most use cases the page takes 7-12 seconds to load. Convince your boss that users will not be as productive while working with SharePoint. The developers will be working with very limited resources, Microsoft has no direction, and the users will not be productive.

I am a self loathing SharePoint dev and I drink to fall asleep.

Literally all the unexciting corporate jobs that pay a living wage use Java, and that's what the majority of programming jobs are. There's also quite a bit of .NET in that realm as well.
>>
>>45598604

I assume that SP was obtained from being a MS partner like most of our clients. For its use case as a document sharing service like O365, then I would say go for it. If your users understand Outlook and Facebook then they can learn about o365 very quickly. Microsoft's new direction is cloud and mobile so there's a lot of skepticism regarding the on premises solution.

Lafayette is close enough to Houston to pick up some work, baton rouge and new Orleans have some with the likes of IBM and ea.

Salaries from 40 to 90 give or take but an apartment is 400 to 900 (the REALLY nice ones are 1500).

The jobs aren't hard to find, but nobody is looking for them so everything is word of mouth.
