I'm a developer from Halifax, and I've spent most of my time with web development and system administration. I love the fast paced nature of web development, how there are so many new and interesting developments.

I use Ruby, Node.js, PHP, JavaScript, SASS, LESS, CSS, HTML and whatever other tools do the job.

@GregHewgill We only have 4-5 projects, but our 3 devs are working like 12 hour days maintaining them. I manage a lot more than that for my freelance work. The issue IMO is that nobody real understands how things work, so it takes a long time to fix things/add features

@Spoike He has a "real" programming job, hence the reason I'm trying to get him to focus on the technology he uses everyday for that job

@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen Not so much a single technology, but the LAMP stack is what he works with everyday. I think he should learn all the basic/relevant to his job details about MySQL, Apache, PHP and JavaScript at the very least.

You raise good points. The problem is, with some stuff he knows what's he doing but with other stuff he doesn't (I think he just doesn't want to learn it so he keeps copying it from other projects). For example, he's written pagination, I've went over it piece by piece, but he still doesn't understand. I know he could understand it, because it's a super simple concept, and he's done far more complex stuff.
