Hello everyone, I wanted to introduce myself as the newest member to join the ranks of ASFusion. I was hired on November 1st as a designer and front end developer, and I am excited to work with a team of people that really understand how the web works, and has a good sense of how to make the impossible happen.
About me: my name is Mark Aplet. If your familiar with Mango Blog, then you may have already heard my name before--or perhaps my username (visual28)--I design and develop themes or "skins" for Mango Blog users to dress up their blogs. I have also developed a number of free plugins for mango blog that are available from my personal website. I have been fairly active in the Mango Blog community since I was introduced to it about two and a half years ago. So if you have a theming question, I am a pretty good person to ask.
I have been working in the design industry for about 10 years. Then specifically in web design for about 7 plus years. In that time I have taught myself html and css, and even a little ColdFusion. In fact my very first ColdFusion app was MyCFNuke (no longer available). The ColdFusion clone of PHPNuke. I don't conceder myself to be a ColdFusion programmer in the least. I know my way around CF, but feel more at home in HTML and CSS. Languages that I hope will be put to good use while employed here at ASFusion.
When I am not designing or developing websites, I enjoy getting out of the house with my wife (BFF) and or family pet Henna--a very energetic golden retriever--for a trip up to the mountains for some camping, fun in the snow, or an all out off-road adventure in a heavily modified 1942 Jeep rockcrawler.
