What's the most fun part of your job?

I'm a front-end engineer, who is very passionate about UX.

Lately, I've had a ton of fun doing the UI design for a new application we're building at work. I get to do some outreach at my job, which I also really enjoy.

What's the most fun part of your job?

Anytime something moves from an idea to being real.

  • deploying a new app/service
  • shipping a new feature and using it
  • getting a test from failing to passing

It’s really just that singular moment of creation and change.

Learning something new. I've been doing this since the mid-late 90s and would not still be doing it if I wasn't able to keep learning. And the great part about that Is I like that learning new things is part of my job. even if it's just a new way to do something in CSS which I've been using for decades.

I've yet to start my own company, but that's what I've heard! There's something really freeing about the idea of starting a business that's yours!
