Been paid for developing for a couple decades, in addition to the assembly, Basic, and DB III I learned for the fun of it. Most of my professional career has been spent developing server systems and web applications.

Some things I have come to believe are:

  • Simplicity is hard, but oh so necessary
  • The hardest problem is understanding
  • Users are great, they keep you humble
