So I haven't made a journal since I got a job at the start of the year. Maybe some of you have noticed, maybe not.

In January I started a 6 month apprenticeship as front end designer, or whatever you call setting up WordPress templates and editing them to our customers liking.

After 4 months, I was vastly more experienced than my predecessor (who had a 6 months head start) and was doing bespoke designs on top of WordPress. Having recognised this, my manager argued my case to the director and had me upgraded to a full salary as a junior developer, a full two months before my apprenticeship should have finished.

At present, I'm doing more bespoke solutions on the back of WordPress and will soon be managing the ever growing team I work with.

In the future, I hope to be working towards developing sites with Magento and our own CMS, whether it be front end or back, I'm not quite sure. Though I much prefer working with the back-end of WordPress right now.

On a different note, I have been following the Jamerio threads and only have one thing to say: HippY > Jamerio.
