Tom Townsend

If I had to summarize myself in one sentence, I think it would be this: I want to be a force for good in the world. By that I mean I want to the right thing every time. I want to write code that can be read by others. I want to follow a pattern when designing that can be followed and expanded upon as technology changes. I want to be humble and learn from others as we grow together.

I am a full stack developer with an emphasis on UI. My favorite things always involve creating something. No matter if it is an elegant technical solution or creating creative engaging content; I am passionate about it. I am a lifelong musician and writing code is much like writing songs. There is a pattern and structure to everything. When you find the pattern and interact with it you can change and expand it into a new creation that you brought into the world. That is music to my eyes.

I am passionate about UI/UX. I love to create or edit graphics with Adobe Photoshop and include them in HTML5 / CSS3 web applications. I enjoy using Adobe Dream Weaver or Microsoft Visual Studio to identify and resolve display issues on multiple screen sizes. I love using jQuery to make things move and sizzle.

I am passionate about building web applications in C#.net. I am comfortable building a SQL database, C#.net web application, a User Authentication system, Designing UI with HTML5\CSS3\jQuery, Acheiving SEO results, or Producing website statisics reports and analysis.

I’ve have real world experience with RPA and the possibilities of what can be done with it intrigue me. UI Path is the software I have used, and I am working on a certification for UI path. The key to RPA is knowing what to automate.

I am very interested in all aspects of cloud computing. I am Microsoft Azure Certified, and I have considerable Enterprise level Azure hosting experience.
