in reply to
what type of programs you make?
I was hired primarily as a software developer on a team that's rebuilding an existing in-house webapp and cleaning it up with the ultimate intention of opening the source. However, I have a background in system administration as well as programming, so I also end up writing quite a few command-line and cron-based tools to help with automating routine maintenance of both the webapp codebase and our servers.
For free-time programming, I tend to write games, usually web-based, but often with command-line-based prototypes of game mechanics, concepts, etc.
