I am an engineering graduate from a Non CS background. I have been working as a backend developer for almost two years now. The tasks had become a little repetitive for me and frankly speaking a little boring. So I decided to resign and take some time off to decide on what I wanted to pursue next as a programmer. I am currently serving my two month notice period.
The post comes after an advice I received from someone I believe a lot in. What they said was essentially that to grow, I needed to create a niche for myself. I believe that to do this, I would need to add a set of skills that are rare to find in programmers. The effort and time required to acquire these set of skills are not an issue for me as of now.
What in your opinion are such programming profiles? How can I begin to acquire these set of skills? If you are working in one such profile, how has your experience been so far? Is there a possibility for me to create a niche as a web developer?
Thanks a lot for your time in going through the post.
