I’m a front end web developer, who used to think he could design until I started working with real designers. I bake bread at least three times a week, play guitar, restore old motorbikes and goof around with code.
I joined the dark side and gave up my contracting career and went semi-permanent at a behemoth of a corporation a while back to get some security and stability. The work is interesting as we’re developing a new web platform from scratch on CQ5.6.
Working for a place like that does have issues with regard to:
Crap ancient hardware, god awful network, office politics, M&M’s (managers and meetings) and a whole gamut of other garbage and nonsense. Having a great team around you alleviates a lot of that though.
