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.

I've recently gotten back into learning new coding languages, and I'm trying my hand at javascript and java. I was ultimately interested in making an Android game - if only to learn the basics of how that all works - but am putting that on hold. I had an idea for a game where there is a very lovely giraffe who is a victim of his own surroundings. 

The basic premise is a sandbox with a giraffe, and you can play around with him and do various physics related things. To get the physics aspect right, I initially wanted to use jbox2d and java in order to create an applet. However, that turned out to be much more of a pain to install. I then had the idea of honing up my web skills, and making the game with javascript/HTML5/CSS. This is so far turning out to be a lot more fun. It doesn't have all the functionality that can come with Java, but it's a blast to learn and see what happens to the poor giraffe.

As of now, there's just a giraffe you can drag around a physics sandbox, and you can press any key to give him a space helmet. Take a look at it here.
