It's time to introduce myself Designer who codes

Let's get it started

My name is Dennis Chow a.k.a. Fat-Cow

I am a Web Developer with design background & now focus on front end web development

To pursue my idea of transforming concept to reality, I have changed my field of expertise from the print design industry to the IT industry.

I enjoy problem-solving and turning them into simple and clean interface designs. I also like the client-side logic, microinteractions, content presentation, structure of coding, user experience, responsive layout, and always strive to write elegant and efficient code with best practices, whether it be HTML5, CSS3/LESS, or JavaScript (Vanilla/jQuery/AngularJS).

When I am not glued to my monitor, you will find me most likely banging with dumbbells at the gym, blasting music on my headphones, tasting a sexy food, and or posting pictures on Instagram.

A little bit more

I create content first, clean, functional, logical, search engine spiders friendly, professional websites that validated with W3C standards, resulting in semantic structure and accessible HTML and CSS. 100% of my websites are dedicatedly hand coded. Because I enjoy the romance of "Start From Scratch".

For building websites or web based applications, my gear consists of Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Sublime Text, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Gulp, PHP, and MySQL.  My current CMS of choice is ExpressionEngine (Because I can build instead of manipulating and I love clean code).  Also, loud music , speakers, sub-woofer, and headphones are part of my gear.

Specialties: Build from scratch, Web code-based prototyping, UI/UX enhancement & troubleshoot, Front end web development, Semantic and clean HTML structure, CSS styling/hacking, DOM manipulation & data exchange with JavaScript (OOJS/AJAX/JSON), Interactive user interface, Responsive design, Web performance testing, Essential knowledge of SEO and WAI for the web, Eyes for details/design, Web development (desktop and mobile), and Design.

In the past two years, I have been on and off self-experimenting with AngularJS, Vue, Gulp, Meteor, C3, Chart, Moment, BEM, jsRender, Handlebar, and Craft, trying to have them under my belt.

Front-End Web Developer responsible for a website’s user-facing code and the architecture of its immersive user experiences. As an advanced FEWD, I also made visual design decisions on-the-fly for problem solving, because some problems of which cannot be solved by writing code alone.
