Freelance frontend web development for people who think the internet is a bright spot in the evolution of human civilization. ...not to mention rad, rocks, stellar, delicious and totally cool!
for work with fellow geeks and nerds - especially in the life sciences and/or space exploration industry.
A well-crafted web page has a positive influence on the lives of real-world people, maybe even on the future of humanity. I take my quantum of responsibility seriously, so if you are looking for a team member to provide responsible markup and styling to your webpage or app, please call me at (530) 219-3182 or send an email to me at christine[at]clgoldenwebcode.com
I have been providing web design and development services for others since 2008, and have always created my own business websites. I use the best standards of the day and strive to ensure your website is accessible, searchable and easy to load, whether on a desktop or mobile device. I'm always learning and thrive on using the newest technologies.
This website is in itself a main part of my portfolio, so please take a look 'under the hood.' It is hand-coded and continuously evolving. From here you can see what I can do now, and what I'm learning.
I hope you find the code clean, semantic and nicely commented. Be sure to check out its responsiveness by resizing your browser or loading it on your phone or tablet. It is based on Andy Clarke's 320 and Up framework.
For additional background, you can peruse my previous website, which was not Responsive, but was hand-coded and shows the early projects I designed, developed and/or produced.
I agree with Andy Clarke's "hardboiled" approach of coding for the highest possible functionality, rather than the lowest. I don't aim to be 'pixel perfect' across platforms, but to tailor the code so everyone has a good experience.
In this day of multiple devices and viewports, I also agree that presenting projects to clients is best done from the HTML/CSS as seen in a variety of devices. Currently, I can physically test pages in the modern browsers on Mountain Lion, in IE8/9/10 on Windows 7, iPhone and iPad and on Android on a Galaxy SII phone. I also use BrowserStack.com for devices I don't own.
