Whether you’re a fresh-faced freelancer cutting your teeth on your first commercial project or one of the industry’s leading lights with decades of experience, it’s important to be able to take a step back occasionally and plot out the path along which you’d like your career to progress.

In light of this, we’ve decided to focus this issue on growing your professional skills and standing. That’s why Tom May has dug out his magnifying glass and is scrutinising the subject of specialising versus tackling the full stack, looking at whether it’s better to narrow your focus or become a versatile jack of all trades.

And that’s only the half of it: elsewhere, we take a look at how you can make your way as a solo developer in the competitive world of ecommerce. Alternatively, if you’re looking to eventually sit at the helm of a bigger brand, Chris Murphy is taking a look at how you can grow your business, building your web design empire from a simple single-developer outfit to a multi-employee agency.

Finally, we also look at how you can ensure you’re practising impeccable version control, even when managing remote teams a continent away. So no matter what stage you’re at in your career, this issue has something for you.
