Up and Running

Finally, we’re up and running.  Welcome to PixelBind.com.  I’ve been trying to get a blog up and running for a little over a year now.  I finally sacrificed a few days over the weekend to code out my theme.  I know I’ll have to adjust it here and there, but for now, it’ll do the job.  Let’s start writing and sharing already!

Allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Jonathan Carter.  I’ve been a web developer since 2007.  I currently work for a county government agency in the Myrtle Beach, SC area.  Yes, living at the beach is a delight, but I have to say I’m guilty for forgetting it’s there sometimes.  I graduated Coastal Carolina University in 2006 with a bachelors in graphic design.  Shortly after graduating, I started working at a marketing agency here in Myrtle Beach and started diving into HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.  That got old real quick and I started learning my first server-side language, ColdFusioon (I think it was ColdFusion MX at the time).  A couple of years in the marketing agency left me thirsty for web development, so I got a job with the county government as an ASP.NET web application developer.  I mainly work with VB.NET, C#, ADO.NET, SQL Server, and DotNetNuke.  Don’t worry, I’ll be covering other categories.  I don’t particularly care for the Microsoft .NET framework, and think it’s a little bloated in my opinion.

I come across little snippets of code, or simple methods daily and thought it would be a great way to give back if I started a blog of my own.  Thanks for visiting – first blog post… complete!
