I.e. what kind of dev work do you do that makes you have to deal with this more than the average developer?
Maybe I'm just full of myself though!
And in no way I meant to imply that you were full of yourself :)
I was just curious as I've only done some front-end dev and dealing with CORS was a minor part of it and I'm always interested in HNers with niche jobs or uncommon experience.
* Most devs are at least full stack
* Most apps now-a-days interact directly/indirectly with browser
* Attributing this problem to frontend devs without understanding why CORS and issues in handling that, makes you unaware of security issues with your backend services.
FYI: I am a backend developer.
