Hi I am Shane the owner and author of this blog. A little about me, I went to Ferris State University for 3 years in the Computer Information Systems program at there College of Business. While at Ferris most of my time studying was focused around servers and programming. I took 2 classes in Java and a class in VB fell in love with coding then. I am a self taught front-end developer and back-end developer with knowledge in HTML, XHTML, XML, CSS, jQuery, and PHP. At the current time in Chosen work with front-end development and Optimization. I work with many different CMS’s including Expression Engine, Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, Magento, ChosenCMS, and others. I consider myself an expert in WordPress theme development. I am growing to become a SEO/SEM expert and have a ways to go. If anyone has any pointers for me I am happy to except them.
