Kids I know that went the soft side into web dev haven't fared well either, easy degree means competing with kids from India.


India Software dev is run like a sweatshop. If you want stuff cheap you get crap code. I know there are night shifts and day shifts over dev.

It isn't an easy degree. Front end code and design if done well it as difficult as the more "hardcore stuff".

Nice try trolling, I actually wanted to help you.
