Welcome to my blog!

Matt Ramirez
Web Developer

Web development to me is about problem solving. Almost every day, we as web developers overcome various challenges - code logic, site layout, and user interaction to name a few. Like many professions, the life of a developer is about constantly learning. Our tools include a wealth of resources, that reflect the strength of our community. I've made it my goal to help shape these tools, and provide insight into the daily life of a web developer. Enjoy the content!
