No matter what industry you're in as a developer, you'll always be a developer. Let me explain. Most developers only refer to themselves professionally as developers. Which kind of seems like a no-brainer. Except that there are lots of different types of developers out there. So even if you're a software developer, you'll probably still only be known as a developer.
Most developers have very little experience. In fact, the majority have less than 5 years of experience. So you could become a developer in very little time. It's definitely a young person's game. While we're on the topic of experience, the majority of the knowledge surrounding the developer job title is self-taught.
That's right. The majority of developers teach themselves how to become a developer. Condensed education and only a little bit of experience, it doesn't get better than that. Except that it does. Developers are essential in most every industry, resulting in a lot of job opportunities. But which one will you be the happiest at? Research points to gaming developers.
