TecBrat, the frankencoder:
Very little organized training (High School AP class in 1991) but several years of experience hacking together pieces of code.
I greatly appreciate the willingness of the community to help each other improve their coding skills.
Learning JQuery. I am hoping it is a shortcut to learning more JS. So far, I find it helpful and have begun to find extensions / plugins that make it even better.
I joined specifically for PHP programming Q&A, but I found myself much more active on EL&U for a while. I have only my own experience and my highschool education to guide my answers on EL&U.
(I changed the "f" in "franencoder" to lower case because the proper name apparently belongs to a guy name Phillip, and I wouldn't want someone else calling themselves "TecBrat")
