"Suddenly, a system stops working, and there are 10,000 users waiting for you to fix it. That's also part of the life of a developer."

Johnny Fekete was in high school in Hungary when he first learned computer programming. "I found it fascinating at the time, that you can write something, and then the computer will do what you tell it to do," he says in an interview.

The 32-year-old Fekete, now living in Barcelona, talks about life as a freelance JavaScript developer. "I think I'm a successful freelancer because I'm not just thinking in codes, but I'm thinking on what my customers will need, what are their requirements, and how can I adapt it to a software."
