Bio

Hi, my name is Matt McDonald. I am a software developer. My speciality is HTML DOM scripting (via JavaScript.)

One of my goals is to create standards-compliant pages which are viewable in as many browsers as possible. I advocate, in a vociferous manner, for the strategy of Graceful Degradation. I test my pages without images, CSS, JavaScript, and Flash. I also test in old—nigh—ancient browsers such as Lynx and IE 4 because there is much to be learned from the past. The building blocks of flexible web pages are set through HTML. Authoring HTML in a proper manner the first time can make a monumental difference.

Skills

Here is a short sampling of my skills:

  • HTML 4.01+,
  • CSS 2.1+,
  • JavaScript and DOM API,
  • XML and SVG,
  • Vagrant and Puppet,
  • PHP 5.3+,
  • PostgreSQL 9+, and
  • ActionScript 3.0/Flash.

More information can be gleaned from my online CV (via StackOverflow Careers):
