I totally agree with you nemi. I don’t consider myself a developer, but I have already built three different websites and learn new stuff everyday (today I learned how to make a website more shareable on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter just by adding a few lines of really simple markup!).
I guess it all boils down to confidence, and if you allow yourself to get stuck in that “All of these real developers knows sooo much more than I do, I can never compare myself to them” mindset, it’s hard to get to the next level. Or perhaps you’ve already reached it without knowing because you were too busy belittling yourself? :)
Anyway, great article and great comment! 👍
