I am curious, and wanting to get feedback from other women drupal developers. I am a back-end developer. I have found when meeting with project managers, vendors, and other non-developers, that they assume I am the designer and the male is the back-end developer. Even when I am introduced as the Lead Developer.
CSS is Greek to me. I know enough to say "No" and "where is the bathroom" but I won't be reading the Odyssey in original Greek any time soon. But when it comes to speaking server, I am completely fluent. I rather spend my morning setting up a LAMP stack, then figure out why that box is floating under the text then next to it.
It is a small annoyance, and very, very minor in the list of problems in this world. But instead of assuming, I just wish these folks would simply ask "who is the front-end developer and who is the back-end developer?".
Strangely enough, I very rarely run into this when talking to other developers. They tend to ask what my specialty is over assuming that I am front-end.
Has anyone else run into this? Any good stories that you are willing to share?
