No 2 days are the same

The landscape of technology is constantly changing and getting better with every discovery and every single development project is unique. You’ll never be bored working in dev since every project is interesting in its own way. They say you should never stop learning, well that won’t be a problem in dev with the constant stream of new trends coming your way. From engineer libraries to commercial software systems, you could be working on anything that takes your fancy. And having a diverse skill is incredibly helpful, no matter what you want to do.

It’s not as hard as you may think to get started

There’s never been more resources available for new and aspiring developers to get started in the technology field. You can find a huge number of courses, online courses and mentoring programs to get you started on your development career journey. Not only that, there’s a big dev community online, groups such as ‘Google Developers Group’ are (where else would it be) full of fellow-developers willing to support you in your learning.

There’s no ceiling to what you can accomplish

When you’re working in the Cloud, even the sky isn’t the limit. Some of the most lucrative companies in the world were all started by innovative developers who changed the world with what they built and achieved, we’re talking Apple, Google, Twitter, Facebook. And now we are seeing some great start-up companies on the same track, all built around tech by developers.
