A job search coach once asked me what I am interested in doing.

I responded that I am interested in doing most anything having to do with development. She responded that I should never say that, under any circumstances, and that I should wipe that response from my vocabulary!  (This is the same job search coach who at one point suggested I try doing other work.  She obviously doesn't "get it...."

At one point, around 2012 or so, it seemed that all recruiters had to ask whether I did front end or back end work.  Not wanting to limit my career options, I always tried to dodge this question, or at least try to respond with a mumbled "both."

When the term "full stack" became popular, I decided that is what I am, or at least what I currently want to be when I grow up.

After trying to get in on the Great JavaScript Library Explosion of 2014, and failing, at least for the most part, if asked today, I would say I am most interested in full stack, middle-ware, or back end development - in that order.

Yes, it turns out that being Interested in Everything is the Kiss of Death when it comes to talking to People Whose Livelihood depends on Pigeon Holing you before Conversation is Even Possible.  I find that to be Very Sad, but have No Fear, I am willing to Roll With It.

After attending some local Joomla! and WordPress meetups, and meeting a lot of people who use these tools by customizing them by downloading other people's extensions to the core project, I would like to get in on this sort of CMS customization work, particularly that which involves development.

After taking time off to work on these Device Detection projects, I am thinking this is pretty cool: customizing and tweaking these open source tools to better fit in with what people want.

If that involves Device Detection, that is cool, but I sincerely hope to find other types of work in this area as well, because psst, want to know a secret?  I am Interested in Everything, but don't tell the Recruiters, they have a need to Pigeonhole people, and I am not a pigeon!

P.S. "wrt" stands for With Respect To.  We used it all the time in that Logic Programming class I took in college....
