Learning The Latest Technology

I started out as a self-taught web developer taking a CS course (CS50 at edx.org). After consuming core concepts of C and how to compile it with the terminal I wanted to learn how to make visual web applications.  With the help of Udemy instructors on-line I started to learn the magic of javascript. I learned how to program with php and I learned how to use bootstrap (css library) to expedite responsive design. Once I had an understanding of how to make dynamic web pages I matriculated to General Assembly’s Full Stack Immersive Program. I was taught how to build apps quickly with ruby on rails and angular.js. I graduated in February 2015. Since then I have gone on to work for four successful start-ups as a Front-End Developer. The companies I have developed for in order of 2015 to 2016 are Pinwheels, Colab.la, The HQ, and TrivNow.

I practice what I am good at and I work tirelessly to learn the latest technology to help me become a reliable contributor to your next project. You may inspect my code on GitHub.
