About Me

Professional Headshot of Michael Ragsdale
Me, Michael Ragsdale

Pronouns: He, Him, His

My name is Michael Ragsdale and I am a web and desktop developer residing in Norfolk, Virginia. I give websites the once-over for Accessibility standards for both Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

My IT and Developer career began professionally in November, 2019 (4 years ago) with fixing internal websites at a public university for accessibility compliance. However, my overall skillset dates back to 1997, 26 years ago.

I am most at home crafting web pages from scratch using Notepad++ (Windows), gedit/Kate (Linux), or BBEdit (Mac). Take this Portfolio page for example: custom PHP (using PHP 8) with Bootstrap 5 and Font Awesome Pro 6 which was written using Notepad++ and uploaded using Filezilla.

My role in this is to design a website for you that exceeds your expectations. I also give existing websites the once-over to make sure they comply with common accessibility guidelines.

I originally hail from The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (Newport), and moved to southeastern Virginia with my family when I was 2, and I've been there ever since.

Thank you for considering me for your website needs!
