I'm a developer that's worked on his own and as a consultant and it has been a long and very satisfying career. Funny thing is, I started in construction and wound up in IT. lol.. I went to vocational school for construction during high school and then when I graduated started working for my Dad in his construction business. A few years later I found myself attending college and working as a supervisor at a warehousing company that exported semi trucks and truck parts that shipped in huge wooden crates that we would make. I got interested in computers about that time while they were still young and new to the technology scene. I eventually wound up writing a materials list for these crates where all I needed to do was enter in 3 dimensions and it would create the list of materials I needed to build the crate. It was pretty simple stuff but was fun to do. Now days, I kind of want to go back to construction simply because sitting around all those years kind of takes a toll on you physically. I need to get up and move around more. It just makes me feel better physically. I go to the gym a couple times a week that helps but I need that every day.. just don't have time with my work schedule. I guess that's what I get for being part of the brain trust at work..
