Off and on since 1996 when I HTML-ised a glossary for my employer's intranet with a Perl script and knocked up a Web demonstration site for a company anniversary event (got a bottle of wine for my efforts). Even played around with WAIS and Mosaic.

3 years professionally, mostly working on web applications for corporate intranets, but I do some external stuff as well.

And, professionally meaning... including payments and contracts.

What were your greatest achievements in your opinion?
and what was the most important skill acquired?

Professionally 8.5 years, I wrote my first web page in circa 1995.

Greatest achievement: The creation of Elsi, a bugzilla like issue tracker aimed at corporate IT support desks, and convincing my boss that I can release it under the GPL in the future :-)

Skill: Juggling standards. Web development is littered with standards, specifications, recommendations, RFC's, best practices and more. Mostly due to it being at a crossroads of different technologies. Trying to manage that overload of information and keeping track of the two-three dozen that apply to your project at any moment is hard.

Around 9 years now. But I have worked in other fields of development as well during that period.

I will very well keep that in mind.

There's a standard for almost everything. Case in point: OPML A webstandard for making lists of things (like a list of links or RSS feeds or whatever). [rolleyes]

Whenever I finish my new website, I'm sure to write a little piece about this "standards proliferation".
