Mainly a C++ developer for over a decade and recently got serious about web programming. I have mainly written reusable frameworks and components based on which our products are developed. I enjoy that role and want to keep doing that wherever I may go.
I am a noob in web programming. After my webby questions were repeatedly closed on stackoverflow.com, and was told, ostentatiously, by the "system" that I'm ripe for ban, I figured, despite rank pedantry on the moderators' part, my questions may be better suited for chat. So I mostly get help from there. People are friendly there.
On these sites it appears people more experienced/qualified/intelligent than I would have already posted better answers to questions, and I certainly don't have the attitude to put in my 0.02$ just for the heck of it.
I have been wrestling with a million diversions and distractions to somehow keep my 5-6 private projects going. Every project is in a beautiful shape, almost 80-90 % done, but not yet presentable to outsiders. Its a frustrating feeling really. Also funny in a dark way.
