Philly JS Dev October Meetup

Phila JS Logo

Back in August, I started attending Philadelphia JavaScript Developers meetups. Last night, I attended their October meetup, which was the third one I was able to attend.

The first talk, called “Jammin’ in the Console,” was an amazing presentation by Kyle Stetz, a front end developer at P’unk Ave in Philadelphia. Kyle has created an app called Lissajous, which is a wrapper for the web audio api, that allows you to perform music in realtime by writing JavaScript code in the Chrome (or Firefox) developer console. In the talk, Kyle demonstrated the app with a fascinating live musical performance. He went on to talk about how he designed the api to be light on syntax (easy to type), as well as future plans for the app. Read MorePhilly JS Dev October Meetup

How I Got Here – Part 1

This is the first post of in a series of “My Story” articles which detail how I got here. Though the posts are numbered, they are not necessarily in chronological order. I generally view my start in web development with the creation of my first project. From that point forward, many events have lead up to today, the day I launch this blog. The next several posts in the series will detail this adventure in coding.

I also plan on going back and exploring the past, because as mentioned in the About page, I have long been interested in computers and technology in general, and that interest lead to where I am today. I also look forward to adding new chapters to my story as I continue to move through my career as a web developer.

So, how did I get here?
