About Joseph

I have been computer programming with a focus on the web for over 14 years and have learned the ins and outs of Java, PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby and many other languages in that time. I have done work for Roadway, Goodyear and FirstEnergy Corp. on their core web applications and back end processes. I know how to build real applications for the real world.

Now that the "impressive" stuff is out of the way, I'm also very personable, more so than most of the other programmers I know. I've taught a number of classes at each place I've worked and have a love for sharing my knowledge. I have spoken at conferences and also at personal one on one classes with children to teach them computers and programming. I am mostly interested in teaching my students real-world programming skills and how to navigate the professional world of application development. No last minute exam cramming sessions or hiring me to do your homework, please.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Computer Programming

I have done web programming for the last 18 years in a variety of languages and have studied computer programming patterns and best practices.

General Computer

I have been using computers since the 1980's and building internet applications since 1998.

Java

I have done web programming for the last 14 years and much of that has been in Java. I have written Java applications for FirstEnergy Corp. and can help you get started in learning the most used language for corporate IT departments.

JavaScript

I do a lot of front-end development using JavaScript and jQuery. I've also done work on the server side using NodeJS and more front-end heavy work with AngularJS and RiotJS.

JQuery

I do a lot of front-end development using JavaScript and jQuery. I've also used many of the jQueryUI libraries and other jQuery plugins.

Linux

I've been using Linux on my desktop and as a server deployment platform for over 15 years. Mainly Debian but also RPM with CentOS.

PHP

I have done web programming for the last 14 years and some of that has been in PHP. My latest application was done all in PHP using the Kohana Framework. This is a full database backed web application written specifically for PHP 5.3.

Project Management

I manage most of the projects I work on now and have taken classes in Scrum based project management. The latest project that I have project managed is a new web application for the Texas Heritage Commission called Downtown TX using Scrum and Agile practices.

Ruby

I have developed and maintained applications in Rails and in Sinatra. I also picked up and learned Ruby back in 2000 when I first heard about it and before it was popular (or even usable) as a web development language.

Web Design

I have done web programming and design for the last 14 years and have kept up to date with the latest web design practices and technologies, including HTML5, CSS3 and web design frameworks.

I am in a computer science program and am pursuing the traditional course route (java, data structures, compilers, operating systems, ect). I recognized that even though I was learning and completing my classes successfully, I didn't quite fully understand the concepts we were learning - enough to really elaborate and write good code from what I learned. I pursued the traditional route of researc
