Coding with Jesse

About Me

My name is Jesse Skinner. I'm a freelance web developer.

I'm a Canadian from Barrie, Ontario, an hour drive north of Toronto.

I was born in 1980, and I've had a computer since 1983. As a child, I read programming magazines and typed the BASIC code into my Coleco Adam. I went on to graduate from the University of Waterloo in 2004 with a "Bachelor of Mathematics" in Computer Science.

I've been working as a professional web developer since 2001. I've been doing freelance web development since 2006, specializing in JavaScript, CSS and HTML. Lately I've been using Svelte whenever possible.

I also write. I write regularly on Coding with Jesse. I wrote a book for O'Reilly called Unobtrusive Ajax. I've also given a number of talks.

Sometimes I stream on Twitch. I also record coding videos for YouTube.

Well, that's enough about me. What about you? Please feel free to get in touch.
