colin stodd If you landed on this page I assume you have some interest in who I am. And since I'm not cool enough (yet) to have my own Wikipedia page, I'll share this bit on my personal site. In short, I’m a percussion player turned web application developer. In 2014 I moved from my hometown of Annapolis Maryland to work in the D.C. area with the American Gastroenterological Association.

Other than writing software, my other passion in life is music. I played music with two bands ("Earthtone" and "Damn Right!") for about 10 years. I wanted more stability in my life so I took a job with the Maryland General Assembly. While working at the MGA I began teaching myself to program using online resources, but I quickly realized that I was in-over-my-head and decided to get some formal education; Which led me to Ruby and Ruby on Rails. In August of 2014 I completed a boot camp course at Betamore Academy in Baltimore Maryland which helped me land my first development job with the AGA.

Nowadays, I spend most of my time working with the "Full Stack", with a focus on front-end frameworks such as Angular, React, TypeScript, NodeJS, ExpressJS and much of the common tooling out there for NodeJS; and I almost always use Bootstrap as my foundation.

If you see some "H" logo, that's the logo for Harpua, LLC, which I co-founded with a great developer friend of mine. If you see something with "Colper", that's a nickname that I've had since I was young and is the logo used on this site (in the top left menu bar)...
