Joshua B.


Northampton, MA

Member since:

September 28, 2011

Areas of expertise, training or interest:

I'm primarily a front-end developer, but I have experience with PHP and MySQL for dynamic sites. I am very comfortable with Wordpress, but I'd love to further explore a more robust CMS like Drupal or Joomla. I am originally a Java-trained programmer. I dabble in web design and iPhone app development as well.

Favorite quote:

I feel that life is divided into the horrible and the miserable. That's the two categories. The horrible are like, I don't know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don't know how they get through life. It's amazing to me. And the miserable is everyone else. So you should be thankful that you're miserable, because that's very lucky, to be miserable. - Woody Allen

Brief Bio:

I have been working in the field of web development for the past four years. I hold a Master's degree in Computer and Information Technology from the University of Pennsylvania. My current employment is for a company in NYC, for which I work remotely.


Hello, I'm Joshua. I moved to Northampton for my wife's Creative Writing MFA at UMASS. We're NYC transplants and love it here! I joined this group because I'm a bit isolated from the development community and I'm looking to network with other devs.
