Frequently asked questions about my background, skills, and expertise.
What is your background?
I started my career as a front end developer for a large group of manufacturing companies in Northwest Ohio, later becoming a self-employed full stack developer. For about five years, I worked on both web development projects and writing projects.
At the end of 2014, I decided to focus on technical writing full time. I've been a regular contributor to ProgrammableWeb, the world's leading source of news and information about APIs, since February 2012. I cover breaking news, in-depth analysis, and product reviews.
I'm no longer accepting web development projects. However, I am interested in writing projects that involve static or interactive data visualizations.
What happened to WebCodePro.net?
I used the domain/username webcodepro as a self-employed web developer. For a while, I operated as a professional technical writer using my name while continuing to use the webcodepro domain name. WebCodePro.net reflected my web development work, but didn't well-represent my writing work. So I've decided to move to JWTechWriter.com.
What content management systems are you familiar with?
I'm familiar with many CMS and blogging platforms including Drupal, WordPress, CMS Made Simple, Blogger, Tumblr, and Joomla!. I'm capable of learning and using any CMS or blogging platform a writing project would require.
I have over ten years of extensive web development experience which has sharpened my ability to research and understand not only programming and code, but also complex technological concepts. Here is a list of key skills and expertise:
CSS / CSS3
PHP / Python
APIs / JSON / XML
