Hi, I need advice from people in regards to pursuing a career in web development at this point in time, I hope to hear some answers from people who are experienced.
So long story short, I have been programming on my own for a year now and have always wanted to work as a developer after I graduate. I finally in my final trimester and soon going to hit the path for choosing a career, I had a talk with my dad who discourages me to enter the field cuz it will be a dead job.
Now my dad is someone who has been in the i.t industry for almost 25 years and has worked as a software developer before. He holds a high position and is currently working as an I.T architect at a large enterprise. His point of view is that the field is dying, and web developers would only last for 10 years at most.
He told me his team has already worked on producing codeless enterprise websites which will put web developers out of job and tried to convince me to do cybersecurity instead as its a new field.
I feel v discourage by what he told me because all the while I enjoy coding and love what I do. I already am anxious about job hunting and now I have to worry about what he told me.
