I love working as a front end developer. The time has come, however, to think about the future and the opportunies for growth. I’m currently at a senior level position at my current job, leading my semi-agile team’s front end workflow as well as managing a junior developer. So what’s next?
User Experience (UX) is a multidisciplinary, multifaceted branch of the web that includes UI design/development, user testing, research, and information architecture (IA). My focus would be mainly UI design/development, leveraging my knowledge of RWD and front end technologies to craft interfaces that perform well, but are also easy to use and understand. I’m excited to be able to build prototypes and wireframes that solve problems based on user research and testing.
While I’ll still continue to freelance as a WordPress developer (because WordPress is awesome), I look forward to starting this new phase of my career and writing more about what I’ve learned.
