I’ve been developing as my main job since 2004. I’d graduated with honours, after going back to university to do a Multimedia Studies degree. Yippee, cutting edge of technology, here I come!
Not quite. My first job was coding COBOL using Vi. Some of the code there was actually older than some of the developers.
Gradually, I learnt the usual web development technologies, then went a bit server-side with SQL and databases and what-not. I came back to the user with Android development around the start of 2013.
I’ve been enjoying that, but I’m starting to find the human side of development just as interesting as the technical side these days.
