Hi! My name is Josh. I've been designing and developing websites and applications for over a decade now. From websites and web applications to mobile applications and mobile games, responsive design, user experience and design, technical SEO practices, and more. I've learned and built a lot over the years and now I'd like to take the opportunity to give that knowledge back to the community in a simple, easy-to-follow format.
I love what I do, am still constantly learning new techniques and technologies, and pride myself on keeping things as simple as possible. If something was done in 20 lines of code, I like to see if I can do it in ten. User experience and design, fast load times, and, most importantly, useful content are things I strive to accomplish in all of my work and they're things I'll be covering or touching on a lot in this blog.
That's me, amongst the cat curtains:
A little about me: I'm a lover of web development, coffee, photography, gaming, and have a Rubik's Cube personal best solve time of 23 seconds.
The name Orangeable combines a few different perspectives:
orange, which generally describes something that stands out and is attractive, and
able, which is defined as "having the power, skill, means, or opportunity to do something." The name, to me, provides a powerful statement on what this blog is about and how I want it reflected to you, as the reader, with the end goal of providing something truly useful and informative.
I hope Orangeable can help you achieve your goals and keep the fun in web design and development. Sometimes it can be hard to keep the spark lit, but the reason we keep going at it and learning is because we still have a passion for it.
If you have any questions or just want to say hello, fell free to reach out to me on Twitter.
I'm looking forward to helping you learn and have fun with web design & development. Take care and enjoy!
