Hi Everyone!

About me as a developer

I am an average developer. Plenty of spaghetti code knocking about with my name on it.

However I have spent a lot of time working in and learning about accessibility, website performance (and core web vitals) and Conversion Rate Optimisation and despite imposter syndrome I would call myself an expert in all 3.

Just started a new role at daily.dev which is even more on the marketing side of things (I am designing my own job, so my official title doesn't exist yet!), so my development skills will be spent on dashboards, analysis and tools to speed up the marketing process and I will finally get to flex more of my creative muscles!

About me personally

After 15 years of abusing my body, eating poorly and doing no exercise I have been hitting the gym hard the last few months! Loving it (still weak and fat, but less weak and less fat than I was 3 months ago!)!

I have also been improving my diet, luckily I really enjoy cooking, it has always been something that I find relaxing.

I spend a lot of time reading and writing nowadays, I really love challenging my own beliefs and biases so I tend to try and read things that conflict with my own views and opinions.

I have an unusual talent, I can watch 2-3 seconds of a film and (assuming I have watched it), tell you what film it is purely from the colour grading and sound design etc. Maybe I missed my calling in video production 🀣

Occasionally I draw, I am useless at people etc. but I love architecture so I draw cityscapes, dream houses etc.

Welcome to Dev , @inhuofficial !πŸ₯³
'Average' is a tricky word to use for a developer...no one knows everything , not even top I.T. management.
Certain projects take years and various refinements . It is by working together that we get the job done.
Good luck to you! Hope to see some of these cityscapes someday.🀩
