About me

 

tl;dr: QA/Producer of two years goes home and learns how to make websites, yet somehow is still hungry for knowledge. QA: Perfectly good job, some would say. Other people love it. Good for them. I, however got very bored and decided I wanted to be a developer instead. I started staying late at work, just writing little JS snippets and talking shop with whichever of the developers were still around. When I left Mobile-5 Media I began to collect (and read) computer science textbooks. I took online courses (click here to see a list) and workshops, and quickly moved onto making small games and webpages. I also learned why developers get so angry when people try to talk to them. Six months later, I am now (amongst other things) taking on far more ambitious JS projects, and recently have been pushing much harder on the visual side of things (my CSS up to this point having been slightly neglected). I have also made considerable leeway with a very dorky book I have been writing for far too long, and built myself a computer. It's ugly as hell but damn is it fast. I've been concentrating on CSS, JS and HTML, have also peeked at (in descending order) GIT, jQuery, command-line, PHP and AJAX.
