Have I failed as a programmer?
Programmer of ten years coming out of a depression slump of five years. I've spent the last five years building and maintaining data capture tools, preparing intraday extracts/deliverables to numerous clients, routine api and sql work. Right now I'm at a bit of a loss as I don't seem to have the experience to have 10 years of experience. I don't think I should throw in the towel - I'm just not sure what makes sense as a next move.
