Currently working as a data scientist but thinking about switching to SWE as my passion for data science is at an all time low. Looking for advice on the switch and where to start, was thinking front end developer. Thanks!

It sounds like you need a new job than anything else. Usually when I start not liking my profession I start looking for external reasons as to why my passion may be at an all-time low. Is there anything like that?


1.5 yrs is relatively low. Maybe try another company before switching.

What do you do at your current position? I’m also a data scientist but I do backend development as well as some frontend too at my current position

I am currently serving my notice period ending on October 5 in the company "A" But my fnf is supposed to take place somewhere between 15-25 November.

Meanwhile, I am supposed to join somewhere else, let's say company "B" on October 12. As fnf at firm A is supposed to take place around November 15-25, will they release my UAN number.

I just wanna be sure the final fnf date does not cause any issue with my employment at Company "B"

Please someone explain.

Something that severely gets into my nerves:

This client told me they tested the solutions I gave and that it didn't work, and requested a meeting to sort it off. We schedule a meeting. I just inspected their account and they haven't tested shit, I can see the same code mistakes, they never tried to change anything.
I'm pissed. They're basically wasting my time and I don't even see the point in meeting with them.
