    I love both graphic design/UX and coding...do jobs typically emphasize one over the other, or is it possible to find a position where you get to do some of both?

    Do you guys favor candidates with a formal education in web developing when hiring? ...versus someone self taught.

    Howdy! My name's Robert. I'm brand-spankin'-new to the group. Moving to Charlotte August 2 from Tucson, Arizona. I look forward to learning and networking with everyone!
