About this site
First, this site serves a kind of journal. After all, it's nice to see your progress. Secondly, I'm hoping that the articles are helpful to others. I've made a career for myself by using knowledge that other people took the time to write down and post to the web. Time to give back a little.

About the author
← mah face.
I'm Jeremy Ricketts. For years I've been employed as a designer and front-end developer. I'm about 20% pencil & paper, 40% Photoshop, and 40% html/css/js. I've always wanted to get into programming. Although I've dabbled in PHP (and completed some fairly complex projects using Expression Engine) I'd really like to do some "real" programming.
