How viable is freelance web dev right now? Be it front, back, full.
I'm working a 9-5 Network Engineering job, and whilst the pay is decent at 32k (for my area of the country, and being a graduate's first proper job), I'd much rather work to my own accord remotely, and networking is really not the area for that.
I get the impression it isn't very realistic, what with the saturation of webdev bootcamp 'graduates' looking to fulfil the work in your pants dream, and those make your website in one click things like wix.
I have some programming skills, but none I think are particularly relevant (Python, bash), so if the answer is yes , it is viable, I'd like some pointers on areas to focus on please, both in terms of technical skills and areas within web development that offer some opportunity.
