    I couldn't shake design. I'd do both if I could, but at the rate things change in this industry, that's impossible to do at the level I'd like.

    So from my experience, with a bit of back-end coding under my belt, and a lot of front-end coding, it's been super awesome.

    Mostly because the experience has allowed me to more effectively communicate with (and through that, collaborate with-) developers and other IT colleagues and business partners.

    It has given me an appreciation for the craft. Not just from knowing the workload, but also knowing what drives them. What makes them feel good. What's important. What's not.

    It's a way of thinking that is absolutely gorgeous. Especially at the upper end, experience/skills-wise.

    Coding is gorgeous.
