Not sure how many of you had experienced such a change in the past but I recently changed my group/team and with it my technologies also changed. Earlier I was a mobile developer and now I have jumped into a web app development role which may later change into a backend position development 🗣️. This realization of changing technology is eating me from inside because now I left something that I was extremely great at (8 YOE in mobile) just because of ...... and that I moved from mobile technology to web/backend. Even though web may have it's own perks but imo moving away from mobile development seems like a wrong move at this point because I was extremely good at it and it's exciting and it's getting better slowly(note - still I hate java coding in Android, I'd rather use Kotlin). Just thinking about such a change have left me anxious, shaky and alone in the dark.. Did I made a bad decision? I know it adds up to my resume and that somehow I can pull it off but still this fear in my pit. What am I to do with it? Any sage level suggestions based on your experiences?
It seems like you are very passionate about mobile. Nothing is stopping you from moving back or moving to another company.
