In 2008 I finished my undergrad in Computer Science. Four years later I also earned a Master's in Software Engineering focusing on project management.
Because of my personal and professional use of WordPress I've become quite proficient with PHP & MySQL in the LAMP environment.
I learned HTML in 1996, CSS in 1999, and JS in 2004. I like to get my hands dirty so I handcode instead of using some silly other options that have come along.
