Personal thoughts on web development

When I finished my degree I was more focused on accessibility and web standards, and now I tend to make more progressive enhancement and SEO. The possibility of developing a public site with (to some grade) an important number of visits has given me the possibility of knowing better how search engines work and how I can monitor the health of the site.
Finally I am becoming fan of UX. As a proud owner of an iPhone and an iPad I have realized that not only have I used these devices, but I also have enjoyed discovering UI details and patterns that Apple has taken care of to make using their products a fun experience. And that makes me care about making responsive sites with a self-explainable UI that does not need the user to read a whole manual to start using it. I guess you have already watch these videos. And this is really a challenge when developing a framework that should cover everyone's needs.
I think I have found what I enjoy nowadays. Who knows if next year I will be more focused on developing HTML5 mobile-ready websites working both online and offline or building RIA. The truth is that web development is getting fancier and lots of great possibilities are on the horizon.
