The .COM bubble was fully deflated, 4-year old Google would enjoy its first profitable year, Microsoft introduced a decade-long curse on web developers with IE 6; and we lived in blissful ignorance of social media. That was the nature of the the online world when I started my professional career as a web developer in 2001.
In the 14 years since, I lead interactive development for an agency and the online development for an international relief organization; served as a front-end developer and team lead for an SAAS CRM product; and more recently was a Senior Developer for the Arizona Republic and azcentral.com.
I am a Senior Software Engineer Lead for iRelocation Networks in Chandler Arizona. iRelocation is one of the largest qualified lead producers in the moving industry with over 100 websites that integrate into proprietary and 3rd party enterprise software.
