Definition of Web Developer

Post from September 24, 2019, filed under .

Web developer, n.: A person saying to develop web sites and apps only to do everything not to develop web sites and apps (→ tooling).

A non-judging, tongue-in-cheek observation of how we change (with) our craft.

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead—currently manager for Developer Experience at LivePerson—and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly. I love trying things, sometimes including philosophy, art, and adventure. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

If you have a question or suggestion about what I write, please leave a comment (if available) or a message. Thank you!
