Started in web applications using a home brewed POJO MVC framework before there was such a thing, pointing to an Oracle db. Then got skilled at the front end with JavaScript, was doing synchronous and asynchronous calls before it was a four letter word. Got sucked into a big bank, and they loved my for my build automation skills using Ant and my ability to master CVS. At the same time was a main java dev and did a lot of stuff with PDF libraries for showing images and reports of scanned cheques. Then moved out to the rockies and got stuck in a shop that only recently stopped using FrontPage! Now I'm the only dev here and slowly turning things around, from vb.net to c# and ASP.NET MVC framework. With luck we'll be running on Mono this time next year. Phew!

comment Why should I use a subdomain structure over a directory structure?
@Marco For example, Google Analytics can't differentiate between identical folder structures under different subdomains. a.foo.com/example/ and b.foo.com/example/ would both show up as /example/ in google analytics.

Correct. Think of it as a university/academic site that also has perfomances. Two examples: a band performed this summer and last visit in 2006 was outranking us. Same goes for archiving of past classes/programs/faculty.
