Years of thoughts and observations, now in well organized slow drip
My name is John Larson, and I’m a web developer.
And I really love doing it. I love the cool widgets, I love the new tricks and tools, I love the brainy challenges, I love the elegant solutions.
I love building stuff that others are just plain happy about.
This business heartily feeds my nerdy appetite for mental stimulation. And my mind has had plenty of time to think about–and become fascinated by–the whole process of software development. The tack that I took was to expand my own kung fu (literally: “human achievement”) on the matter and be the best, most well rounded and proficient web application guy that my brains and determination would allow.
I cut my teeth doing customizations on the MonsterCommerce e-Commerce platform and building my own web-based system for managing that custom programming department. Fielding no fewer than 800 leads during my tenure and overseeing (and eventually joining) my programmer crew during over 100 projects gave me all kinds of ideas and perspectives on both what worked great and what was an absolute mess. Years of freelancing and other projects have further honed my views.
