About me

Hey there! I'm Alex. I'm 32 years old, and really enjoy technology.

I've been using computers since I was 3 years old, and have had my own since I was 6. This has of course meant a lot of shenanigans were had with computers and technology in general.

I try my best to stay updated on the latest web technologies, as well as whatever's shaking in the hardware world.

My passions

Passion is a broad term, but I'd say at the very least I'm passionate about tech in general, but there are certain things I'd say that I enjoy a lot more than your everyday tech-enthusiast

Laravel

Laravel

One of the best frameworks I've ever used. It's got a ton of features that help make a developers life just that much easier and smoother.

Node.js

Node JS

While I've only dabbled in this for a short while, it's clear to me that there's great potential. I'm even using it for a few features on this site.

Tailwind CSS

Tailwind CSS

Amazingly fast CSS framework, allowing for super easy defining of classes that make up your website. I'm having a lot of fun with this, for sure.

JavaScript

Javascript

When used right, Javascript can do absolutely amazing things, and even when used sparingly, it can have a great effect. Smoothly transitioning from some elements shown to others at the click of a button, for example.

Alpine.js

Alpine.js

A fantastic Vue-like JS framework that I'm happy has been built into newer versions of Laravel Jetstream, because it enables a ton of great tweaks without having to go too heavily into custom scripting.

My skills

I'd say that my skills involve a large variety of webtechnologies, as well as a high level of general knowledge about computers, their hardware, and various operating systems.

Laravel

Laravel

Going from plain PHP and Wordpress to Laravel was a huge change for me, but man did it ever pay off. Laravel is one of the smoothest things I've ever used, and it's so easy to build things. This portfolio is in Laravel, for example.

WordPress

Wordpress

I've dealt with Wordpress for many years at this point, to the point where I've been part of building a simplified variant of it for clients.

Tailwind CSS

Tailwind

Tailwind has been a blast to use from day one. Sure it's a bunch of utility classes, but it makes it easy for me to see how each element is supposed to behave versus something opinionated, like Bootstrap.

My education and work history

This is by no means an exhaustive list of everything I've ever done, but I'm sure it'll give a good idea of what I've done in the past.
