My journey into Web Development

About Me

I'm currently a student of Web Development and Design. My primary goal is to deliver high-quality websites that help small and medium-sized businesses get the most out of their online presence. Additionally, I aim to optimize websites for screens of all sizes (iPhones, android devices, tablets and retina displays).

I'm currently working to grow my Web Development skill-set. When not coding I can be found at my full time job as an IT Specialist at a local higher educational institution. I have over 10 years international professional experience working in a variety of systems management roles. I'm learning Web Development in my free time (what little of it I have!) with the goal of eventually having the skillset to take on qualtiy freelance projects.

About This Website

This website will serve to both chronicle my journey into learning Web Development/Design and to showcase the projects I'm working on as part of my studies. Currently this site is developed using HTML5 and CSS3. As time goes on I'll learn to incorporate JavaScript, Ruby, a backend language and a database. I may eventually delve into a content management system (CMS)as well.

Skills I'm Learning

Responsive Design: I plan to offer site creation for tablet and phone-friendly layouts. I'll be able to craft responsive layouts for existing sites, or start new website projects off on responsive footing.

Custom Development: I plan to provide contemporary custom solutions with a combination of custom code and third-party plugins.

WordPress Design & Development: I plan to offer WordPress web design and web development for websites of various types including the following: portfolio, small business, blog, and more.
