So many languages, not enough time.
While web development is a future career goal, I haven’t had my full attention on the latest web technologies and libraries. Guess I have been a little too busy supporting Windows 7 environments and software at Portland State. Wah wah waaaah.
In my quest for web development domination, I can’t help but wonder if I should know a little bit of it all or if I should isolate myself into a framework.
Are companies looking for employees who can take a set of requirements from customers and solve their needs based on various frameworks? Or are we expected to embrace one set of tools and dive head-first into a project?
In preparing resumes, cover letters, and other digital fodder surrounding my experience in web development for future positions, freelance clients, or just “spring cleaning” I consistently feel trapped.
“Jack of all trades, master of none.”
Solving problems and embracing the “WHY — HOW — WHAT” approach, is a lesser understanding of systems acceptable as long as know what we want and will then do the research to support it?
