I built my first web site in 1994 ... this was a time before there was:
- web design software
- HTML Framesets, CSS, Flash
- web design schools
- social networks
... The olden days!
After years of building web sites and web applications (with Java, PHP, C# and others ...) for myself and clients, I started building killersites.com as a hobby project. First it was just articles, then the forum, then videos and blogs.
... I discovered that I liked to teach web design and web programming.
Being an in-the-trenches web developer for a number of years, reinforced my pragmatic and no-nonsense nature that I now try to inject into Killersites. Still working on it.
Final note: the killerSites forum started in 2003!
