To further my career in web and desktop development.


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 5 which was written using Notepad++ and uploaded using Filezilla.
