Web Development

Over the years, I have transitioned from a hard core C/C++ programmer into a 3D simulation scripter and eventually into a web developer. I enjoy web development because it is inherently visual and most of all, because the things that I create can be easily shared with others.

Skills

I can perform a variety of web development tasks ranging from graphic design to web programming.

Front End / UI Development

Coming from a programming background, I am skilled at writing strucutured Javascript using modern web development best practices. Most of my Javascript work deals with user interface programming, but I have used Javascript to program simulation logic and have even created web based video games!

Languages

  • HTML
  • Javascript
  • CSS, LESS

Tools

Back End / Web Services Development

I've built several web applications involving both the front end (UI) and the back end (web services). For building the web services, I prefer to work with PHP because of its ease of deployment and relatively simple installation and/or configuration.

Languages

  • PHP
  • SQL

Tools

Web Design, Layout, and Navigation

I can do the site design, layout, and navigation, making web sites that are both attractive and easy to navigate. I can also do the creative part, helping you to come up with a look and feel for your web site. I can also create custom graphics and illustrations as needed.

Graphic Design Tools

  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Gimp

Illustration Tools

  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Autodesk 3ds Max

Web Design Tools

  • Adobe Dreamweaver

Below are some examples of my work (and play)!
