Web design & Free Software
Free Software tools & technologies for web design & front-end development.
Jake Rayson Rayson
<p>A web designer since the 20th century, I am a pragmatic advocate of Free Software and I use proprietary software when appropriate. I made the full-time switch to Linux back in 2007, and my desktop tools of choice are Linux Mint, Inkscape, GIMP and Sublime Text. </p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>As a Front End Developer, my core skills are HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery, and my working life reflects my commitment to open standards and accessible websites (ie accessible by everyone, regardless of browser, platform, ability or technology). </p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>For web publishing platforms, I use WordPress for ease of use and Drupal for more complex solutions. </p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>I am also learning about Ruby, Rails, Sinatra and CoffeeScript. I like the minimalist Ruby Way. To this end, my personal portfolio website is built with NestaCMS. </p>
