I have been a full-stack developer for about 4.5 years.
My work is on backend more than 80% of the time.
Now I am looking for a new job, and I am thinking about doing a change in my career: which is to find a job that has at least 70% orientation to frontend.
Because I feel that I like UI/UX a lot more than data and backend logic. And also I am a visual kind of person, I like designing things, creativity, and building stuff that users see and use.
I also love designing in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
Is there any risk on doing that?
Giving up a lot of the backend knowledge that I have (Java, Spark, Node.js, Scala, Redis, Postgresql, Dockers, and more and more…)
Is it a bad decision to leave all that backend knowledge, only to do something that I think is more fun to do?
