Dulcie Jackson (Full Stack Developer)
Who would be your dream client and what would you like to work on for them?
Anything with an ethical and/or environmental focus. I’ve always been pretty active in the tech-for-good space, and it’s been really inspiring to work with organisations like the Red Cross and the Gender Pay Gap Service to bring about positive change - but it’s also showed me just how much more still needs to be done.
It’s great to see brands like Ecosia, Rapanui and Headspace integrating ethical practices and wellbeing into our daily lives, and I’d just love to contribute to the growing movement in whatever ways I can!
What’s your advice for someone wanting to get into development?
Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Throughout education, the focus is always on personal achievement, so it can feel like cheating to “give up” and admit you don’t know something. But development is such a collaborative environment, and even when you do know what you’re doing, a second opinion can open up opportunities you hadn’t even considered!
What’s the worst thing about being a developer?
PHP. I’ll leave it there.
