Welcome to RaggieSoft!

I am a web developer with experience dating back to 1997. If you are interested in hiring me, please visit my Portfolio for contact information and my relocation policy.

If you are here to see examples of my work, this website was crafted lovingly by hand using HTML, PHP, CSS, JavaScript, JSON, jQuery, and Bootstrap. My Book Reader is what I primarily work on to show off what I am able to do.

My name is Michael Ragsdale, and I currently reside in the southeastern Virginia metro area (Norfolk, Virginia to be specific). I am currently a worker in the IT web and software developer field, and I have experience in the field since 1997. At this time, I am not actively looking for work. However, feel free to make an offer.

If you are interested in hiring me, please review my COVID-19 & Relocation Policy, my List of Skills, and grab a copy of my Résumé before Contacting Me.
