About ΔNDRΞW

Howdy, the name’s Andrew Reese. I’m 26 yrs into life living in Denton, deep in the heart of Texas *claps*.

Focusing on learning Firebase Hosting and Functions along with Typescript & React better. Learning React Native on my own by trying to build a way too complex D&D app haha. I'm procrastinating getting SASS & BEM down efficiently.

I started off in the world of HTML around 2007 out of pure curiosity of the internet and decided to brand out into the exciting world of code and MAKE MY OWN WEBSITE *gasp*. That progressed and I went back and forth between that and wanting to be a Graphic Designer. But I naturally had more of a nack for coding and I figured that out pretty fast. So then I focused on HTML which when I started was in <table> and thankfully soon into my time <div> became the norm, and this fancy new thing being used in browsers called CSS2. Eventually I kept growing my languages, which as I’ve learned was a bad and good thing hah. I know HTML5, CSS3, SASS, Ruby on Rails, PostgresSQL, Java, JavaScript, React, React Native, PHP, Python, mySQL, and others that are outdated or not really of importance now.

I am experienced in Windows(95-current), Mac(10.4-current), and Linux (Ubuntu is my specialty but I also have experience in CentOS, Arch, Kali, and Mint distros) environments. I use my custom built Windows 10 desktop rig for gaming and then use my Macbook Pro to program/design/everything else besides gaming really. My favourite tools of the trade currently are VS Code with a plethora of plugins (GitLens is killer), Firefox Quantum Developer Edition, and iTerm w/ oh my zsh & other addons.

On a not so techie note, I'm a music fanatic and constantly listen to music, especially while programming. I am a Drummer & Percussionist and currently procrastinating learning piano.
