James Cole front-end Developer

About James Cole

I began web developing in 2006 while completing my Bachelor's degree. It was just a hobby at the time, for extra cash. Yet after graduation, it soon became a full-time career. Since 2008, I've been a professional web developer working on a variety of technologies and languages, from .NET to Drupal, and JavaScript to Ruby.

In practice, I'm a full stack developer, and I like getting my hands dirty wherever possible. My favorite technologies are those for the front-end, like D3, Angular, React, and Polymer. When not programming, I like making cheese, biking, and walking my dog.
