I'm a Software Engineer/Philosopher familiar with most technologies surrounding the HTTP protocol. I've been programming PHP since back when it was cool, had a break during my two and a bit years at Google where Python and Java rule, but back into it now. Enjoy working with Java, Javascript, Perl (if anyone will let me) and Unix based operating systems. Having been a linux user for many years, and had to do quite a bit of it in my work, I have enough System Administration skills to be dangerous.
IT, and software development in particular is rarely given the time to be done well. Short cuts, lack of testing, not thinking about scalability, code hero mentality, lack of documentation, ignoring security, they all save money in the short term, but can turn your development into a random process where you are forever context switching as you patch things. I'd like to work somewhere that understands the wholistic aspects of software development, that it is best produced by a team, communicating, co-operating, acting in concert. I've worked with some brilliant individuals, but they were just that, individuals, and thus always limited their potential productivity. Is this how software engineering is doomed to be, or can it be a sustainable, robust, team oriented art form?
