Jeffkillian.com initially started as a Geocities website when I was in 6th grade. Over the years, it has slowly evolved into a place where I can practice and become familiar with web development as it progresses. I started out coding with Microsoft Frontpage, then moved to Dreamweaver. Initially, there was very little coding, and it was all WYSIWYG. However, as I learned more, I could make it more interactive.


I incorporate drawings and blog posts to keep those that are interested updated. Through the evolution of the website, I was forced to learn HTML, PHP, CSS, XML, jQuery, javascript, and the handling of MySQL Databases. I've put online some code samples.

Classes Over
Since classes are over I figure now is as good of a time as any to update. I'm really excited for next semester, specifically my Algorithms and Data Structures class. I have extensive computer science experience, and I'm excited to learn the ins and outs of scalability. On a related note, you can watch algorithms in the form of dance on youtube. Check out quick sort or bubble sort.

My Rapid Prototype class is done, which is a shame. It was my favorite class that I've taken here, and really taught me a lot. It was great because it gave you just enough information/forced you to learn just enough so that you could understand what the purpose of that language or platform was for. I was able to redo this entire site because I took that class, which was a big plus. The last module dealt with remote procedure calls, which is a cool concept, but I don't think it would be all that necessary for this site currently. The best way I learn is when I have a goal/outcome in mind (aka not just "learn python"). This class gave me a goal for each module that we had. In fact that's how I usually learn languages. For example, to familiarize myself with python, I made a program to create a zig zag pattern on the screen. It was a pretty simple program, but really let me learn the syntax and how it works again. I'm thinking of adding a page here which includes some various code samples from some of the languages that I learned (such as the clock problem).
