Who I am.

My name is Micah Childress and I am originally from Carthage, North Carolina. I currently work for the University of Pennsylvania and live in Philadelphia with my wife and son.

I have a degree in Computer Engineering and 10+ years programming experience. For the last 8 or so years I have been pursuing a career in web application development. I am fluent in many web dev languages (HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript, Python) and am experienced with server management and administration. I am very comfortable in a LAMP environment and have also have worked on projects based on the Windows Web Platform. I regularly use several Content Management Systems(Drupal, Wordpress), Forum Softwares(phpBB, MyBB, PunBB), and Web Frameworks(JQuery, Ext JS, LESS, Django, Symphony, Bootstrap.)

I have also helped author several papers during my time working for various research institutions.

In my free time I enjoy fishing, brewing beer, programming micro-controllers, playing video games, and spending time with my amazing family.
