Hi, I'm Jonathan Volks and welcome to my website. I'm a front-end developer and back-end web programmer. This site has information about me, code and general tips and tricks for websites.
After graduating in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from SUNY New Paltz, I have spent the last 15 years working as a web developer and programmer in a number of capacities. My work includes a multitude of web projects for a wide range of clients, from a helmet camera startup, to a client-centric agency building custom web applications, to Associate Director of Web Programming & Design at Skidmore College.
After years of experience in creating code and working with WordPress clients, I have become highly focused on optimizing the value of the user experience. Maintaining current standards and best practices. Creating clean, streamlined code. Developing content editors that are easy to use for website owners. Launching SEO friendly and ADA compliant websites that essentially level the playing field between highly leveraged corporations and the small business owner.
My other life? Outdoors. I have a passion for hiking and landscape photography. After completing the Adirondack Fire Tower Challenge, I’ve moved on to the Lake George 12ster challenge and completing the 46 Adirondack High Peaks.
