I have some experience in codding (programming). I have created CMS for myself (jquery, php, mysql). Also created invoicing program. Started codding ~ 5-6 years before. At beginning (~5-6 years) before Initial aim was to change profession and earn with codding.
But “problem” is that codding for me takes very, very long time. For example to get CMS to work, i needed ~ 300 hours. For invoicing program first stage also took ~ 300 hours, now improving the program and spent ~ 200 hours.
And one more “problem” is that at beginning all seems very simple (like, get data, process and record in mysql). But during codding arises many variations, conditions etc. and to process (handle) all these, i code, code, code and it seems never ending… And what i expected to do during 1 month, appears that need for example 4 months.
So my question. Is it objective (“normal”) to spend so much time to create what is necessary? For you the same situation? Or, i just accept that codding is not for me? Anyway for my job (income) i need to code something, so i need to continue to do it…
