My name is Brian Barthold. I'm a full stack web developer residing in Northwest Indiana, just a 35-minute train ride from downtown Chicago. I now have 20 years of experience.
During the day I build websites and custom web applications for a local Internet development group, but I also like to take my work home with me. In the evening I dabble with virtual server configurations, web applications, home automation devices and new salsa recipes.
When a project's goals are aligned with a fair budget and a realistic timeline I can always build something great. I've now worked on more than 30 small solo projects and dozens of larger team projects. I use open source technologies such as LAMP stack with various configurations of custom PHP applications. I prefer Sublime text but I also like VS code.
