Web Design and Development

Fiddlisa.com

Although the Fiddlisa project was abandoned by the client, I'm happy enough with the direction it was going in to want to show it off here. A few ragged edges remain, and it's clearly unfinished, but it represents some important steps in my own progress. Namely:

Rariora.org

I once took a class from Austin Community College on HTML and CSS. A few weeks into it, I realized that these were languages without intelligence, so I undertook teaching myself PHP. I knew I wanted a personal portfolio site as my class project, and that was the beginning of Rariora.org, the site you're looking at.

Rariora is the first site I can claim full ownership for. Knowing what I know now, there's a lot that I wish I'd have done differently code-wise and architecturally, but it's my home. It's where I continue to live and learn.

I do think HTML and CSS are actually very cool for what they can do, though I'm now turning my attention to doing my CSS in a procedural language.

As for doing my project in PHP, the instructor said I had "far exceeded the scope of the course." He was also very intriqued with the procedural backgrounds I'd done in Processing. I got an A.

100pillars.com

100 Pillars was an Aikido organization I was trying to help get started. The web site is from my pre-coding days, but art direction and content creation are mine. Code credit goes to Jeremy Cumbo.
