Am originally from South Africa. I love learning more ways to do things so I can do them better. I write mostly Java code, but I've used many languages and platforms.

comment Should you keep a copy of all the code you write?
I think there is a difference in keeping the original source files (in your case graphics files like .ai or .psd) vs having a screenshot of the final product for your portfolio. You should still ask your employer for permission, but they should be more agreeable to the latter.

comment why do some job posts say “high pressure environment”?
I agree. I guess most people want a cozy job. However, there are people that want to work harder today for the potential of a big pay-off and possible earlier retirement.
