Web Development/Programming

Who is zero-space.net, you ask? Zero-space.net is the work of a single web developer/programmer known in a few circles by the name zerospace. I primarily work on personal projects, but I am also available freelance for projects. I am known for my rather extensive knowledge and understanding of computers and more specifically, web technologies. My past experience working for an Internet Service Provider in several very different capacities has given me a view of the Internet not often seen.

Many of my friends know me as their technical support lifeline when all else fails. They also know that I'm very devoted to all of my projects and will often drop other things (when possible) to fix something related to a computer or web site in which I have a personal stake. In short, I take care of problems quickly.

Probably my largest issue(s) with developing web apps are code theives. Nearly everything I create, I share with anyone who wants to use it. Sometimes I ask for some compensation for support, since often enough support is the more time consuming part of offering up code or services for free. My only request is usually that you don't steal without giving credit where it is due. If you want to use something I've written, I don't mind so long as you credit me somewhere in your visible source (CSS style sheets, HTML comments, etc). I don't think that's too much to ask.

A little more about my experience:

I have been developing web sites for about 10 years. All of my web programming knowledge is completely self-taught: I've learned from books, a few tutorials, and of course, practice, practice, practice. I'm fluent in most of the web's major languages: HTML, PHP, MySQL, CSS, and JavaScript. I dabble in other things, but my overwhelming preference is for open-source languages.

I've written small-to-medium sized web applications and documented them. I have a background as a technical writer, so explaining how to use my programs comes naturally. Most have found my instructions to be very easy to follow, and I take great pride in that.


Meteor Galleries: I've developed an artwork gallery application that has become an ongoing project called Meteor Galleries. You can find out more about Meteor Galleries by visiting its primary web site at: www.meteorgalleries.com.

Awards: I also developed a site for hosting a set of animation artwork awards. It's a small web app that is still in need of some work, but I will provide the files to anyone who asks politely.

Seruichi: A more recent project is a site devoted to helping artwork collectors buy and sell art. That project is currently called Seruichi, and its official launch is forthcoming as of this writing.

If you'd like to discuss a project with me, please use the contact form on my site to initiate the conversation. Tell me about your project, and I'll tell you if its within my skill set. I pride myself on the quality of my work, so if I do not feel I am the best person for your project, I will tell you.
