Why become a web developer? You have to love web development already.

What can make you love web development? What attracted me at the start was the fact that it was a multi-skill domain, at a crossroads: there is a layout dimension, interface design, design of graphic elements, various graphic choices, which requires acquiring a graphic designer culture, and a technical, logical dimension, search for a solution, which itself is divided into several components: databases, server-side development, front-end development, integration templates, etc.

This multiplicity of techniques and skills made the job particularly fulfilling for me; the work was varied and rich in reflections, and each aspect helped to reflect on the other.

Today, however, for better or for worse, it seems to me that we are seeing the emergence of a compartmentalization / specialization of tasks that does not excite me more than that. But this goes hand in hand with increasingly ambitious projects, which oblige this rationalization of work.

Still, development can be quite an intellectually exhilarating activity once you’ve passed a certain milestone.

On the salary side, it doesn’t pay too badly, but not enough for my taste. For a Parisian, it’s a bit limited.

Suddenly, I compensate by trying to focus on the choice of projects that I like in their finality, which leads me to work especially around medical and research, when possible.
