About Me

I began programming when I was 10, when I received my first Arduino. I began learning HTML when I was 11 after taking a coding camp over the summer.


For the first few years I was entirely self taught, and practiced on this website, joeybabcock.me, in order to build up my skillset.


I mostly played with javascript, making games and learning how to use serverside processing to create dynamic output for my website.


Around 2015 I began making the switch to wordpress as a backend, and moved my site design over to a wordpress theme.

Education

In highschool I began to refine my web design abilities by putting my skills to practical use. I created several websites for the different organizations I was apart of.


I created separate websites for Sage Creek High School's ASB, Cross Country/Track & Field program, and a separate mediawiki instance for documenting the history of my school.


Senior Assassins was one of the first fully fledged apps I created, and utilizes a number of different languages to administrate the game, run the twitter bot, and manage all the player states.
