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.

comment FizzBuzz - really?
@Inaimathi I never implied you were stupid, I work closely with a Graphic Artist who is smarter than a lot of programmers I know. I merely implied I wouldn't expect a graphic artist to pass a programming test, as I wouldn't expect a programmer to pass a graphic artist test

I routinely give out the FizzBuzz test at interviews and routinely have people fail it. One graphic designer passed it one day though..... Surprised me a bit :)

comment What causes overtime and how can it be avoided?
That's exactly what I think is happening, we're underbidding so we don't lose projects.

@Tim Goodman - Removed that other paragraph as well :), @FOR I doubt Chuck Norris cares what I am doing, and my other threat is a bit of a rant, but this one is quite relevant to many people

@Mark Trapp Made some edits. I was ranting, and this isn't the right place for that. I've tried to make it more general and constructive, thanks

Analyst and Project Managers? Right, we don't have any of those. I am managing my own projects in the way that I deal with clients. My boss sets timelines by taking the hour quote I give them (Say 30 hours), dividing by 8 (4 days) and then saying the work will be done 4 days after contract is signed, regardless of other projects.

They are creating the HTML and CSS luckily enough, saves me a lot of time. A lot of time is spend creating custom modules however. I save myself a lot of time my wrapping commonly used components up into general modules but I can only do so much.
