I make websites for a living. I am a web developer in Akron. I do contract work for Cogneato, where I do full stack development, including front- and back-end development as well as basic server administration and other tasks. I used to intern at RPM International. I also develop things as a hobby and occasionally for other clients. Once a year, I work on a site (or two) at GiveCamp.
I enjoy web development and am particularly interested in build processes and code organization. I have at least some interest in most areas of the web field though. I try to keep up to date with the never-ending stream of information, tools, options, and news.
At Cogneato, I started out mostly doing front-end development, cutting up layouts and converting them to HTML and CSS, but ended up just as much involved with back end development and server maintenance as the job has required. The company uses a proprietary CMS to create and maintain websites for many businesses and organizations of varying sizes.
I frequently am working in/with:
- CentOS / Linux servers
- Bash scripting
To a lesser degree, I work or have worked with:
- Embark Web Kiosk
- Adobe Fireworks
- Adobe Photoshop
- Classic ASP
- SQL Server
- XML / XSL
- Microsoft Excel
I work on the CMS that drives the sites Cogneato builds and have done some or all of the initial and/or continued development work on countless sites. Some of the more notable / interesting sites are:
