About Christine Golden, Frontend Web Developer

Email: Phone: (850) 242-3747

I am a front-end web developer, experienced project manager, and team player. I use the best standards of the day to ensure my clients' websites are fast, searchable, accessible, secure and easy to use, whether on a desktop or mobile device.

I started offering my services to retail clients in 2010. Today, I am focused on providing website services to local small businesses. The pandemic has afforded me with the time to learn JavaScript, start some small business projects and to write about websites, coding and current affairs.

I'm what you might call a 'white hat' developer. I believe in the potential of the internet to bring knowledge and encouragement to the most isolated corners of humanity. I strive to make the web a better place with every project I work on.

Solving puzzles, bringing order, and watching bits of data turn into beauty and human usefulness are what give me a sense of accomplishment and purpose.
