I began learning to develop primitive web pages at the age of around 8. This was before I had a stable internet connection, and I learned mostly by experimentation in notepad and, and, occassionally by studying html files which other precocious learners with internet access gave me via floppy disks. I have been a hobbyist coder for most of my life and used HTML and CSS when I've needed it, and about a year ago I decided to make a concerted effort to turn my experience into a career.
I try to be a full stack developer, and although I can certainly work on backend technologies I feel a great deal more confident in my abilities as a front-end developer and for this reason I often market myself as simply a front-end developer.
Not in a professional capacity, but I've worked in large teams for not-for-profit organisations on a voluntary basis. Ergo I have experience handling version control, working to time-lines, and in building to design specs on large collaborative projects.
The message form at the bottom of the page will get you the quickest reply, but generally speaking I will accept long and short term contracts, provided that the compensation is fair and I feel like the minimum standards are being respected.
I can use Jquery and Bootstrap although I discourage their use. I have worked in the past with Python, Perl, C, C++ and Java. I haven't used many of these in a number of years but am confident that I could pick them back up quite quickly if needed. I know how to build testable applications in Chai and Mocha. I also use GIMP and Photoshop to perform image editing and basic graphical design. In 2017 I spent many hours developing android applications and considered that as a career path before settling on web development.
