Please take a minute to introduce yourself...

How did you start writing/programming for the web?
What kind of web-related projects do you work on?
Do you have any other interests?

[Information about web companies should be posted elsewhere; this thread is for people to introduce themselves.]

I come from a printing and publishing background, and began working on websites for print customers looking to "repurpose" their content. I now work for local government, where about a third of my time is spent on municipal web sites. My interest in web accessibility predates my current job, but the knowledge I've gained has proven valuable in it. Boating and gardening are among my other interests.

I come from the audio post-production and recording industry. I started long before computers, you know razor blades and magnetic tape. But as computers became more prevalent i started getting more interested in working with other digital art forms.

My first websites were for my own business. Then one day at the tennis club i made the mistake of telling the president they should have a website. That lead to a an ever expanding volunteer project that has no end in sight.

Then I started to gain a reputation amongst my wife's colleagues as someone who could help with their sites. So I have a little business on the side that I see as something i can do even into retirement. I think there is a niche for designers and consultants to very small business and individuals, who need a lot of hand holding and patient plain-spoken explanation of the options and facilities available to them.

Tennis, music, cooking and gardening are my hobbies.

I started (learing) programming in 1965 (I think); I effectively "word-processed" my computer-science diploma dissertation in 1971, using a program called the Matthewman Paginator that ran on the Titan computer in Cambridge to output a tape for a flexowriter. Um I started my first website in 1999, and I am still on it, but a part (the jigsaw puzzle shop) has grown into a small business.

I do choral singing and play the piano. I do actually do jigsaw puzzles occasionally, too, but now I pretend it's work.

I started teaching myself HTML about 8 or so years ago. I've done some generic sites using Yahoo, but trying to code as much as I could on my own or using other's scripts as opposed to WYSIWYG apps. Still, my knowledge is pretty basic - though I have stopped using frames a while back tongue.gif CSS goes right over my head, even though I've tried to get it.

Currently, I'm trying to revamp my podcast's website with various degrees of success.

Hi
I come from an electronics background have been building non commercial websites since 2000 , ie local village site , oil engine club (my other interest) etc

In spite of the time spent with websites there are times when I need help and searching the web for answers can prove to be a lengthy proccess ,
I gave up on trying to search for the answer to a current problem and have just spent best part of 5 hours solving how to make a button both print and increment a counter so I know how many people have printed the page
So it seemed like a good idea to register on this forum so I can post a question if I need to and perhaps answer if I can

Im always the late one....
was 7yrs old (16 now), started breaking my dads computer and pulling things apart then after a while i managed to put it back together, and from then got interested in computing.

here i am now, basic knowledge of HTML, php & mysql, css, and attending a level 2 technicians course at college so i can move to L3 (fail at maths / physics so couldn't do L3)

so thats how i got into computing....

Hi. First off Iíd like to think you, whoever that might be, for a great forum!

My name is Pete and my alter ego is CrowDogs (see my aviator).

I started programming sometime in the 90ís with Visual Basic. I developed a free desktop program called Win-USA that contained some of the more important and historical documents of the USA. From that came numerous other programs and the desire to make websites.

I've developed the websites for my former and current employer which has started me doing some freelance work. Though Iíve only made a few hundred dollars, I do it more for the fun and occupation. It helps to keep this old mind sharp (relatively speaking).

Thatís it, nothing more nothing less.

Thanks again for a great forum!

CrowDogs

Hello, to everyone. I am from Arkansas. My job is on the rocks. I need to get my website together with a script so people visiting my site can add items for sale on the site.
Bye for now.
