Final Thoughts


I've been a frontend developer for quite a while; it took me a long time to realize that I was in tutorial hell and that in order for me to get better, I'd actually need to build, and finish, something tangible.

I've built a few things, nothing special. I was building a full stack app with Supabase and Next, with Supabase Auth on top, and a component library with React, TailwindCSS, and Storybook.

But as time wore on, I noticed something- I really, really, don't want to do this anymore, and by this I mean web development.

What changed?

Well, lots of things really. Here is a list, in no particular order, of the reasons I'm done with web:

These are the reasons. And I am going in a different direction altogether while still in the tech space.

And this is where I hang up my cleats, and put this blog in my locker, and head to retirement. It will remain up for posterity. But, it was a ride. Almost 10 years of posts here.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
