I started working at this company 5 months ago. I interviewed, and was hired, to develop applications in C and C++. When started, however, I was asked to put together a Web Application for management, which I accomplished successfully.
This application is very helpful many different departments in the company, and many managers are continuously asking me to add new features, or improvements to it.
But now my actual boss is telling me that - after 5 months of doing web development - I should drop those responsibilities and focus on what I was originally hired to do: C and C++ development.
I'm torn, because there's still a lot of work that could be done on the web application, and furthermore, I have come to greatly enjoy web development. I don't know if being a C/C++ dev is more lucrative than being a web developer, but the later seems like a better choice to me.
How do I tell my boss that I want to continue doing web development?
