Joe

Hello there, internet friend! My name is Joe, but most of my real-life friends refer to me as Joey.

I am currently 20 years old and attend a smaller private university in Indiana. The bachelor's degree I am pursing is a combination of computer security and forensics, programming, networking, criminal justice, and psychology. It's pretty cool.

My first message board account was created on May 30th, 2005 on IGN Boards, and that's really where it all began. I then joined an InvisionFree forum on November 26th, 2006. About a month later, on December 20th, 2006, my friends and I created our own InvisionFree forum to talk about gaming and play forum games. I joined Outline on September 20th, 2008 and eventually served as administrator alongside Sith and Cody.

Long story short, I eventually joined the support team in September of 2015 after lurking Loch Ness Monster style for years.

Background

Coding language-wise, I would consider myself proficient with HTML, CSS, Javascript and jQuery, Java, PHP, and SQL. Generally speaking, jQuery is my go-to for anything unless I am doing something where I need back-end storage. I like to play with a bunch of other languages and frameworks in my free-time such as Firebase, Google Polymer, and AngularJS.

Before joining ZetaBoards, I knew next to nothing about coding aside from poking around with HTML and CSS. After I got better with coding ZetaBoards themes, Reid eventually sparked my interest in jQuery by giving me short lessons and answering my questions via MSN Messenger.

I currently have a programming internship in my hometown that mostly deals with creating SSRS reports through SQL queries.
