Now, take a cup of coffee (tea), and imagine…

You open a new browser tab, type in a URL, and press enter. The site loads instantly. It nearly takes your breath away with its ultra-clean layout, well-constructed pages, and impressive visuals. Your browse through it and you are impressed with the functionalities and the smoothness of the UX. No doubt in your mind: this is a world class showcase website!

Meet with the front-end developers to integrate user-facing elements with server side logic.
Get back to your desk, start your music player and get in the zone to write secure code and architect applications.
Before you run for lunch with the rest of the team, you take some time to do a little QA,  some troubleshooting and debugging on a page you are planning to roll out end of the week.
Start the afternoon by doing a little maintenance on a DB.
Then prepare recommendations for tomorrow’s meeting in regards to optimize the performance of specific functionalities you have implemented on a microsite last week…
