Getting the Best Results
I like to cook and bake but I’m largely self-taught. Most of the things I make are experiments, crafted specifically to the tastes of my boyfriend and I. I rarely ever cook for other people; I do, however, bake. I am a beginner baker, and for the most part I think I have good results. I especially like making pies. I seem to have a knack at making and rolling dough, which I know is a pain for many people. On the whole, it’s all a trial and error process. Some things are good; some are giant flops.
Whenever I attend a holiday party or social engagement, where I want what I’m bringing to taste good, I stick to the desserts I know I make well — apple pie, cookies and cream brownies, and cheesecake. At DDA, we have a similar philosophy, though it has nothing to do with dessert. We have professional people in nearly all creative and technical fields who are very experienced in their individual fields of expertise. At the same time, nearly everyone at DDA has multiple duties, meaning that sometimes the programmers dabble in website development or animation or the website developers in programming or even design. This crossing over is essential sometimes in completing a particular job, but when it comes down to the major pieces of any project, it’s always left to that particular department to complete.
Yeah, we’re all able to multi-task and can often switch jobs quickly and on demand, but at the end of the day, we all have our fields of expertise and we know when to leave it to the experts. This applies to everything from video production, search engine marketing (SEM), 2D and 3D animations, virtual medical simulations, and even our new Flash conversion and iPad and iPhone friendly development division, AppleSavvy.
It’s always fun to dabble, but the results are always better when you know what you’re doing
