About The Developer

Andrew Baacke - Professional Web Developer

From hobby to career, web development and graphic design have been a passion I have acquired and developed over the last 8 years. My web development skill-set begins with a proficiency in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP, and Flash, and continues with a continually growing knowledge of MySQL, SASS & SCSS, JSON, XML, ASP, and AJAX.

My specialties include responsive design, browser compatibility, W3C web standards validation, speed optimization, SEO, ecommerce solutions, and WordPress. These skills are complimented by my knowledge of photography, videography, and IT hardware & software.

Currently doing software development as a consultant for TEKsystems in Madison, WI and a senior at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau, WI, I plan on earning my degree in Web & Digital Media Development in the Spring of 2014. Courses I have taken include Website Development (HTML & CSS), E-Business Marketing Strategies, Graphics for Web & Digital Media, FLASH I & FLASH II, JavaScript XML & AJAX, Multimedia Authoring, IT Project Management, PHP & MySQL, and Database Applications. Related courses include Intro to Programming (VB.NET), Object-Oriented Programming (JAVA), Digital Imaging & Design, and Computer Hardware Fundamentals.

My background in IT hardware and software combines with my experience and passion for web development to create a unique style and ability to grow alongside the continually changing internet trends.
