COVID-19 & Relocation Policy
- I am fully vaccinated and am ready to return to an in-person office. I am also ok with working from home.
- I can not relocate from southeastern Virginia at this time due to current obligations.
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.
