Coding & Development Skills
My beginnings in development were humble, good old HTML/CSS creating (gasp) table-based layouts. An avid EverQuest player, even at 14, I felt the desire to focus my life around the gaming community, taking leadership roles whenever possible. I started an incredibly popular guild, and seeing that other notable guilds on other servers had webpages listing their rosters and guild feats... of course I wanted one as well.
I wanted to go beyond what the basic webpage builders had to offer. I wanted my guild's site to be comprehensive and as beautiful as the game we immersed ourselves in.
I right-clicked a webpage, selected 'View Source' and began to learn to code. I capitalized on this new ability, snowballing my knowledge through the rest of my school years, growing into the skillset I have today.
