My name is Jason Michael, I am a twenty-seven-year-old Boston native with a profound love for all things internet. Well, with the exception of, "The Internet of Things".

I've learned most of what I know today in my adolescence, my family owned a software development firm and some of my closest friends were incredibly into web development. I didn't learn too much from my family as they were always consumed by various different projects and undertakings - they developed software suites for banking institutions. I did, however, learn quite a bit from my friends into web development.

I had started learning HTML and CSS around the age of thirteen, not long after I'd discovered other languages. I then discovered the beautiful bright world of PHP. I can say with utmost honesty, I am still, to this very day, learning more and more when it comes to PHP. Shortly after JavaScript popped up, I had been utterly fascinated by the use, however, I was never too confident in my abilities to make it work as I felt it should.

Years down the line I was offered my first official job as a developer. I was able to keep my design and web development skill set as it was exceptionally beneficial, however, I would begin to add more tools to my belt. My position was as a Mobile Application Developer - this wasn't exactly, "unknown territory" just an area I'd never explored outside of the comfort of my own personal sandbox. This was a truly special and invaluable learning experience for me that I would never trade for absolutely anything in the world.

The internet is my addiction, not just the use of but the creation of. The websites, the applications - it is truly remarkable to take thousands upon thousands of lines of code and turn it into something that people could use in one way or another.
