From Managerial Role to Full-Time Coding: Navigating a New Journey

Aug 21, 2023 by manish

After years of working full-time in a managerial role, I’ve decided to take a break and explore something new. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been coding full-time for the first time in five years. It’s been a humbling experience, but also exciting to see how much the web app development ecosystem has evolved with new frameworks, hosted solutions, and seamless deployment platforms.

Returning to coding after a long break has been a challenge. It’s easy to forget how quickly skills can degrade when not put into practice regularly. The first week was tough, but now I’m slowly getting into a groove of things. Blocking off large chunks of time for hands-on work without any meetings on the calendar has been priceless! I’ll be sharing more updates on what I am building along the way. Stay tuned.

If you’re on a similar journey of exploring, ideating, and building, I’d love to hear about your experience.
