Not all those who wander are lost.
What is something that [people in your industry] have to deal with that you want to fix?
A big issue that developers have to deal with is keeping up with new technologies/software. I don’t believe this is necessarily something that can be ‘fixed’ due to the nature of the industry. However, common industry practices are normally still adhered to. I would like to make sure that any new technologies we use here at Tad Web follow practices that we already use.

Primarily back-end development; focusing on bespoke work, whilst helping design and build software for our clients.
