I have spent the last 16 years developing web sites and applications using ColdFusion, SQL Server databases, and JavaScript. I have strong communications skills, am honest and reliable, and am a real team player.

I am an expert at collecting, validating, displaying form data, populating databases, and creating a smooth user experience. I take pride and pleasure making technology work for people.

I am available to develop small or large web sites for small or large businesses in the Minneapolis / Saint Paul / Twin Cities area. I am also available for short or long term contract work as well as long term employment.

comment Why shouldn't we use words such as 'here' and 'this' in textlinks?
"The main rule of placing the links: first write the text, then add links." ~ Brilliant!

comment Should I place an image behind text data?
I believe that what you are referring to is a "watermark", like the lightly embossed corporate logo on expensive stationery.

Don't forget about the ux.StackExchange.com site! It's as white as white can be.

comment Is it the best idea to gather only one field to create a new record and then edit all fields later?
Actually, I am not talking about a sign up form; I didn't make that clear though. I am talking about a web application that gathers a bunch of data from regular users. I find that most times, not all the relevant info is available, so it's more important to start the process with the minimum of what's available and then assume that everything from there on out is an edit and doesn't need to be in the initial form.

People will go through two steps anyway. They always correct their name and other fields. Why not make it super easy to create a field, like adding a user, and then BAM let them edit it? Have you ever filled out an entire form but realized you couldn't finish because you were missing a piece of info. So you had to discard the info and start again once you got that piece of info? My method enables them to start with the minimum and move on.
