I wanted your advice on a personal subject concerning the programming world. I'm currently employed as a part-time paramedic (25 years old) and looking into a career change. I've been light coding php / html / css for a while and the occasional Wordpress contract here and there.
Here is what my perfect future would look like. Living abroad in another country, doing some freelance work as a programmer. Being able to move to another country every 6-12 months. Take weeks off here and there no boss. I'm not looking to work 40 hours / week. I aim at 25-30 hrs/week. However I don't mind pulling 50 hours/week if that means having 3 weeks off after !
My living expenses are pretty low, I normally make 20k-30K $CAD a year and I'm living fine with this.
Now I'm learning Laravel because I find it to be a beautiful framework and fun to work with. It has been a challenge but I love it. However, I wouldn't mind having to program in another language for freelance work and then programming my own personal projects with Laravel.
Now the questions :
Sorry for the heartfelt post, but the Laravel community has always been of kind and good advices.
Thanks for reading and sorry for the typos, french native speaker here
