congratulations HelenDev!

I passed my 5 year mark just this past August, and it made me all retrospective. What have you learned in the part 5 years, how has your life and career changed in that time?

Can you find your first post in the archives?
this is one of them:

Cheers guys :)

I passed my 5 year mark just this past August, and it made me all retrospective. What have you learned in the part 5 years, how has your life and career changed in that time?

Yes, I was thinking about that too - where I was when I joined compared to where I am now.

When I joined WW in 2003 I was in my second web dev job and although it was very educational, I knew it was not a place I wanted to stay in for very long!

I'm sure many other people here would echo these sentiments when I say that WW has been instrumental in helping me along, and saving my a$$ on occasions when I got stuck with a technical problem!

5 years and two jobs later I am being paid almost twice as much as in 2003, and am in a much nicer work environment. Have recently bought a house and acquired two very cute kittens :)

Long may it continue - recession and credit crunch notwithstanding!

Nice to have you around so long Helen and just for the record, I still feel like a newbie.
