I'm Adam. Nice to meet you!
I'm a web developer based in West Hartford Connecticut. Believe it or not, web development is my second career. Before that, I was a professional musician (performer/educator) for over 10 years. Now, I work full-time for UConn's office of University Communications and I'm loving every minute of it! Every day I get to work on with an amazing (and small) team (2 other devs, 2 designers,and a project manager). Together we work on sites that get seen and used by thousands of people every day.
My goals for this site are pretty simple. To:
- share what I've learned so far
- keep a record of things I've found interesting and/or challenging
- take part in the conversation other developers are having.
Because we're such a small team, I've had the good fortune to work on a lot of different kinds of projects. So, what you'll find on this site is going to be a combination of lots of different things!
- tips and tricks
- problems I've solved for the different technologies I work with like:
- web accessibility (aka a11y)
- command line tools and techniques
- WordPress and PHP in general
- programming concepts I've learned
- and a lot more!
A few more things
Things I want to learn/learn more about:
- meteor js
- the web audio API
- MVC frameworks
More facts about me:
- I've been married for just over 10 years.
- My wife and I have two sons (ages 9 and 7.5)
- I grew up in upstate NY (near Rochester)
- I have a weakness for chocalate chip cookies
- I have a doctorate of musical arts (DMA) with a specialization in contemporary clarinet and bass clarinet.
