Codes is a talented software developer with a focus on systems integration and UI-backend shimming. Starting with writing program snippets at age 10, Codes moved into compiler/language theory and low-level hardware interfacing before coming to the realization that the market would be moving in the direction of web-based software solutions. Armed with a strong understanding of the underlying implementation backing those browser hosts, Chris can now readily and rapidly create front-end code to pair with his back-end code to enable a more feature-complete and robust web application package.

This matters for obvious things like online banking & shopping, but also helps keep your social media […]

Ran across an issue today while re-finalizing some code for this site, and happened to break the loop on the blogroll such that it would continue listing the posts until the code timed-out.
