So I’ve decided that web development isn’t for me and I can see why everyone has a fairly negative view of web development.
After that I began to get smaller development projects, which consisted of adding some sort of functionality in some existing site. It was at this point that I realized that all web programming was was gluing various objects together and sticking a smidgeon of simple logic in between. In other words, I’d gotten into the type of development I so desperately tried to avoid.
But I guess I understand now what it was that I was so interested in. When I have nothing to do, I like to think about myself all meta-like. I thought that I was interested in web development and it turned out I wasn’t. I was really into web standards though, what with the XHTML and CSS and the whole semantic web and separating structure and view.
So, note to self: don’t get a job programming for businesses.
