Right now I'm developing a web app for a professor of mine and since
he is short on funds I've got to manage everything on the technical
So about
25% determining requirements
5% re-determining requirements since after trying it out the users
decide it wasn't what they wanted after all.
30% development of the front end (takes more time than it should since
I'm bad at making things pretty)
20% back end development
10% sysadmin
10% analyzing usage data

> 2,  break down, by percentage of code you write, the languages you use
40% php
20% *sh
15% perl
15% C
10% SQL

The project is fun and it is forcing me to expand my skill set in ways
I probably wouldn't have otherwise.
