I read an interesting article recently about a survey of more than five thousand developers.
The article pointed out that there seems to exist, four types of web developers. I found the descriptions quite interesting.
- Guru: Uses CSS primarily and puts a premium on technological excellence.
- Entrepreneur: Wants to create an audience.
- Designer: Chiefly employs Dreamweaver; Focuses on visual effect.
- Corporate: Wants stability and reliability from Web design.
Having met each of those types, I find myself very much in agreement with those stereotypes. Being a site about Smalltalk and Seaside, if you're reading this, I'm betting you're a Guru, but I bet you know the guy who is one of the other three as well.
