About Me

Hello there! I'm Thomas Borzecki and I am a huge fan of the web and have been since it became a thing back in the 90's.

I design and build websites and web applications and particularly enjoy teaching others how to do the same at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I began programming in grade 7, after an awesome family friend let me on his computer and handed me a Turing Language programming book. I later worked my way through BASIC, and QBASIC, writing programs on paper that I could then type in and run on school and library computers.

In highschool I taught myself C and Visual BASIC, by building some small programs and games.

Realizing I had found what I loved doing, I ended up graduating with a Computer Science degree at Ryerson University, then refocusing and refining my skills to the web with the Rich Media Graduate Certificate program at Humber College.

In my post-secondary studies I also learned x86 Assembly Language, Java, C++, C#, COBOL(once was enough.), SmallTalk and Bash Shell scripting, though it has been some time since I've touched any of those languages.

More recently I have become proficient in HTML/CSS/JavaScript/PHP/MySQL which is what this site runs on currently.

Always looking towards the future, I am dabbling in Node.js as well as Python at the moment in my limited spare time.

The web is a democratic, low-cost, open medium that, at least theoretically, allows access to a global audience. It is, in my humble opinion, one of our species' most important inventions.
Let's keep it that way! (wink-wink, nudge-nudge, world governments)

TL;DR

TL;DR: Me being a mega-nerd in the 90's. Computers, computers, computers. Yay web!

But enough about me, what are you up to?
