The Dev Pages

A knowledge base for simple (and beyond) web applications development


Posted on April - 25 - 2008

Update (August 2016): Not a lot of contribution since I’ve been in law school. I’ve managed to stay somewhat current with technology. I worked full time for about a year on a php gig. I recently did some work on a MEAN app and got familiar with angular and python scripting. I’ve done side work with php for the last 6 years now. If I passed the July 2016 bar I may end up focusing on law, but we shall see.

You are on the development blog of Nate Williams. This blog serves as a knowledge base for my experience in developing web applications, which consists primarily of developing in php and javascript. Web development also involves the use of a little bit of everything. I’m also trying to maintain my skills with java, sql, python, etc., and continue to learn ruby and c#. Of course, the theory and design patterns are things I try and keep up on.

I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in information systems. I’m an ISys graduate who actually enjoys developing and I most prefer web applications development. At one point, my job title was ‘software engineer’, but really I avoided being an engineer by switching from Electrical Engineering to information systems in college. Regrettably my academic laziness wasn’t overcome until the end of my sophomore year. I decided to go to law school with the hope that I could find some work that is more directly involved with community. The primary goal: A career that isn’t just staring at a screen from 9-5 while working for someone else. Problem solving and working with people are things I enjoy in my work.

Hopefully there will be at least a thing or two in here someone else can find useful. Use the categories in the sidebar to view my limited stash of knowledge. Since my audience is primarily myself, I tend to throw stuff up fast, hence the enormous amounts of typos and bad page organization. Here’s a list of it all – what I got so far.
