Designer or Decorator, You Make the Decision

Whilst catching up on my backlog of blogline reading, I somehow stumbled along to Jens Meirert’s question of designer vs developer. It is a response to a 456street similar article by way of asking us to consider that most important question:

Are You A Web Designer or Developer?

Whether we choose to call ourselves a coder, engineer, programmer, decorator, designer or developer, the question Jan asks has a small flaw: Very few of us are working on changing the world-wide-web, we are working on improving the many sites that reside on it.

So maybe a Coder would be the most succinct title we could call ourselves. After that, it’s all semantics.

That article is from mid 2007, I suggest you read Jens’ more recent article that talks through a few strategies for effective learning.
