Brian Wardwell

Fargo, North Dakota, United States

I'm entering my final two semesters in the Web Development AAS program at Minnesota State Community and Technical College. I hope to continue my education at either a four year university or two year school (if the latter, while gaining experience in my field). I enjoy visual aspect, UX Design and programming equally but seem to feel drawn towards inventing websites that help causes and have a positive effect on humanity. Then there is always the day job as well of course.

Technical reading on my spare time:
*"Algorithms Unlocked" (Thomas H. Corman)
*"Everything to do with PHP and MySQL" (Virkram Vaswani)
*"New Programmer's Survival Manual" (Joshua D. Carter)
*"A Project Guid to UX Design" (Russ Unger/Carolyn Chandler)
*"Wordpress: Visual Quickstart Guide (3rd Edition) (Matt Beck) ... learning.

Fictional Authors that top my list:
Ray Bradbury
Stepehen King
Chuck Palahniuk
Jim Carroll
Henry Rollins
Anne Rice
...looking for more to hook me and never let me go
