a little bit about me
My name is Jeremy Hutchcraft and I am an Orlando Web Developer with a tremendous passion for both writing code & design. I work as Full Stack Developer and Designer at Findsome & Winmore, a team that is connected by a passion for helping clients find and win new customers using sound digital marketing strategies and tactics. I've definitely found my passion in solving problems, and bringing ideas\designs to life. I take pride in delivering websites and web applications on-time and on-budget.
I am a proud UCF ALUMNI and worked hard to maintain a 3.8 GPA during my time in school. Learning is one of my greatest passions and I pick up new things very quickly. I love going to Electronic Dance Music festivals, and a nice strong IPA.
I have decided I wanted to spend my life being creative. I have always been drawn to art, digital media, and various other forms of creativity such as making music. I'm looking forward to accomplishing big things, and I hope to meet a lot of cool people along the way. Thanks for checking out my site.

This was a survey whose results struck me as eye-opening and inspiring at the same time. Tons of people who filled out the survey who were self taught.. To me the low barrier to entry to our field is a great thing. The larger the community of developers the faster we will learn from each other.
Animation is like cursing. If you overuse it, it loses all its impact.
This is a great article written on Medium about not overusing animation. It talks about good cases for animation and bad cases, with examples.
Animation is a great way to delight users, but there are a lot of wrong ways to animate the web.This “complete guide to getting 60fps animations with CSS” is another article written on Medium about ways you can improve the performance of your animations.
