I have been a developer professionally in some capacity for more than 10 years, though I made my first websites in the late 90s. They were terrible, even by the standards of Geocities.
My preference for front end development is likely connected to me being a design hobbyist who used the internet to show off derivative ideas. Across my career I have also worked with Classic ASP, .net, PHP, and SQL in my brief time as an analyst, but building accessible user interfaces for people is where I have settled.
- Reading The Plague by Albert Camus.
- Learning German.
- Watching Columbo.
- Ignoring any notion of 'training' and just trying to cycle as much as I can.
- Daydreaming about being able to travel again, while being simultaneously anxious about it.
