Kevin Nelms Baxter II

I am a software developer with experience developing, testing and implementing code through training and independent study. I have gained experience from attending a Java development apprenticeship program through Grand Circus. After spending a year with General Electric as a front-end developer, I decided to take that experience with development and design and apply it to my career in becoming an Android developer. Some languages that I have gained a firm grasp on in my career are as follows: Adobe Suite, HTML(5), CSS(3), XML, JavaScript, JQuery, Angular JS, Node JS, Java, and SQL. With these tools and my exposure to android software, I have gained a strong footing in the web development field and plan on using my tools with each opportunity.
