There were some conversations on Twitter this past weekend that HTML is not a programming language.
I don’t care about semantics, but I DO care to recognize people that write HTML as developers.
My first full-time job I wrote code to solve problems even though I didn’t have “developer” in my title.
I automated a job that used to take 3 weeks down to 3 hours with the code I wrote.
