My name is Kevin Beal and this is the place where people who haven't met me get to learn more about me. I work for the Event Helper as a front end developer, user interface designer and all around badass. I work with an awesome backend and frontend developer named Tyler Jensen of Yuzu Design. I study philosophy, psychology, economics and politics in my free time thru a site called Freedomain Radio. I live and work in Nevada County, CA
I use photoshop, Dreamweaver and other tools to create a website design from wireframe to mockup to your browser. I use tools like Twitter Bootstrap and design my own custom stylesheets to fit the needs of the project. Stylesheets I write are in the dynamic stylesheet language Less.
I write scripts that interact with a database, and generate data from those scripts to create dynamic content for web pages. I do this in an MVC & OOP pattern using the Codeigniter framework. I use the "no-SQL" database technology MongoDB to store and organize the data for my projects.
I am always learning and some key areas of interest for me currently are unit testing, NodeJS, sockets, one-page apps, AngularJS and more.
I am usually pretty busy between work and other side projects I take on and so I am likely not going to take on other projects. If you have a project you really want to work with me on, you are certainly free to let me know about it below in the contact form :)
