Again, I think front-end development is not a bad craft or trade.
That said, I’m looking to get further into the back end and I’m figuring out some small projects to help me figure out which direction to dive deep into.
What I’m thinking:
Distributed systems - This just sounds cool, and I think it’s really interesting stuff. I really don’t know how they work, and I certainly do benefit from their existence
Low-level systems programming - This could be work on the OS, but I’m thinking more a long the lines of networking and gaining a real hands on understanding of TCP, UDP, etc…DNS
Here are the smallish projects I have in mind:
Is anyone else in this situation? Or made it through this transition? Any advice?
