Reed Jones

Student Developer
Learning stuff, solving problems, finding solutions.

I like a good challenge. I built this website with Pug, Sass, and TypeScript, tools I had never used before. I took the opportunity to try something new. I often jump in over my head, but always seem to find my way out. I built myself a cabin, spent six months living in Nicaragua learning how to surf, tree planted for 5 seasons and help build the World Cup Alpine Downhill Ski Race course in Lake Louise, Alberta.

I am full stack developer. I have experience in various backend technologies including PHP and Node.JS, as well as, database management systems including MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MS SQL, and frontend technologies such as HTML5 / CSS3 / Javascript / JQuery. I built the Wordpress and Omeka themes for Valley Museum & Archive Society.

My latest pet project is where I have implimented a minesweeper clone and seem to be slowly converting it into a virtual desktop.

I am currently finishing my third semester in Computer Engineering Technologies at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton Alberta, and look forward to graduating December 2017. Apart from web technologies, I program mainly in C#, however I also have experience with Assembly and C on embedded devices.
