Hello world!

About Jared

I'm an aspiring web developer, primarily working with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Ruby. My favorite RoboCop is the 1987 version, my favorite color is Orange, and I'm really more of a cat person.

I used to work in marketing, but I decided it just wasn't for me. I decided to do something about it by flying out across the country to San Francisco to attend DevBootCamp. Now that I'm back home, I'm looking to apply everything I learned there with the right organization, and grow from there.

Particularly, I'm interested in the whole stack-- I used Linux of some flavor or another for a number of years, so I took naturally to scripting and writing things behind the scenes. On the other hand, I've also been dabbling with HTML before there was CSS (and when it came out, I was glad to get it!) and have a good handle on vanilla JavaScript.

So in that way, there are very few technologies I ever turn my nose up at, given the chance to learn even more. You never know what will be useful, and what lessons from a completely different language or data structure will carry over to another and help you overcome a new challenege. If that's the kind of passion you want for your team, then feel free to reach out to me.
