About Me

Hi, my name is Jeremy Harris. I love web development and fishing. I am the proud father of a beautiful little girl and work hard every day to set a quality example for her in how to live life, work ethics, and common decency.

I got my first introduction to programming at age 15 when I got my first computer. I came across a QBasic book at a yard sale and decided to mess around with it. It took a grand total of maybe an hour to be hooked! After several months of dabbling and late nights, I had created a terrible top-down RPG but I loved it. I also knew it was time to expand.

Around 2001 I dabbled with C++ and Visual Basic 6. I went the VB route and spent the next couple years making cool applications and games. I also started messing around with HTML and Javascript. The web at that time was still a curious mess with IE being the dominant player and many sites I viewed were riddled with flashing marquees, clashing colors, and a touch of Microsoft Frontpage all over it. Remember Geocities? LOL.

Around 2003 I got my introduction to PHP and MySQL. I loved the power it had, but more importantly I loved the fact that anybody on the internet could view my work. I found it difficult with traditional application programming to get people to use my software because people just don’t trust executable files from random people. I’ve been coding PHP since then.

In 2004-2006, I was working full time at a titanium foundry as a nationally certified Level 2 Fluorescent Penetrant Inspector doing Non-Destructive Testing. I wanted to be working on the web but lack of a degree made me barely marketable so I made the decision to join the U.S. Navy. I headed to boot camp May 9, 2006. It was a difficult but rewarding experience and my 6 year tour was honorably completed on May 8, 2012.

I then moved to Columbia, South Carolina and have been working full time in web development ever since.
