Quote:

“Working as a project consultant is the bee’s knees – it allows me to be involved in every phase of a software project. I get to learn about the customer’s business, help him define his requirements, design a fitting software solution and manage the project to a successful finish. But I value the time I spent programming applications early in my career – because of it, I have an understanding of the technical side of software and web development that gives me a holistic view of the development process.”
