But I’m starting to get a little worried that since tons of people are out of work due to the current situation, there are a lot of people out there deciding to learn to code.
I do not believe the majority of people will suddenly take up web development, and successfully change jobs quickly due to the pandemic. Its very possible those that already thought about it, will “go all in” to switching careers at this time, but this is probably not very widespread.
Will there soon be more coders then there are jobs?
Pandemic or not, I don’t believe there will ever be enough developers for all the jobs available anytime soon, or even ever. This doesn’t mean companies will get desperate and hire anyone. Another affect the pandemic will have is the increase use of remote work, thus making job hunting harder, as competition can come from anyone from anywhere.
There will always be jobs that need determined experienced people who can do the work. Keep it up, keep going, and keep learning and you will eventually make it. It might not be fast or easy, but its not impossible for anyone.
Good luck keep learning!
