Web Development

I have 7 years of web development experience. I have been running my own web development studio for the last seven years. During this time I had the opportunity to personally take part in every part of the web development life cycle: Conceptualization, software architecture, back end, front end, client service and, yes, support. Fresh out of university, two friends and I started our own web development powerhouse. We started with zero funding and thus did everything from the ground up. This gave us precious experience in all aspects of web development.

Also being from the old-school lot, we had to grow  with the web and internet technologies, from the painful table-based designs to XHTML to Web2.0 to HTML5. Originally we had to do all JavaScript and AJAX without JQuery (I know right!). We built our own MVC framework and ORM because the others didn’t really exist. We built our own custom blogging platforms. This experience enabled me to actually understand how all the modern tech work, and not to simply use it. It also made me appreciate the latest and greatest technologies all the more. When it comes to the web, change is here to stay, and I happily embrace it.
