Hello, my name is

Carol Skelly

I'm a s/w engineer,

Web developer,

& frontend designer.

Long before the first dot-com boom...

I started coding.

Fact: My first computer was a TI-99/4A.


I have worked with many technologies, platforms, frameworks, tools & languages.

A few that come to mind...

HTML
JavaScript
CSS
NodeJS
AngularJS
Bootstrap
Responsive Design
Rest
APIs
jQuery
JSON
C#
SOA
MVC
Visual Studio
Git
GWT
Flexbox
XML
XSLT
NoSQL
SQL
MongoDB
UX
.NET
Java
Eclipse
TypeScript
CMS
Metadata
WordPress

However, I don't think that having experience with a specific language or platform is super important...

Analytical thinking & problem solving are the most important skills for my job.

I guess those math professors were right. Once you perfect those it's easier to learn new technologies that come along. Change is inevitable. It's important to be aware of upcoming technologies, methodologies, and "schools of thought". I like to play with new stuff whenever possible. I try not to get too opinionated about one technology. It makes me laugh when people get dogmatic about a specific brand, such as "I hate Microsoft", or "I would never buy an Apple".

Fact: My first real job was at Lotus, supporting 1-2-3 & Notes from `91-`94. IBM acquired Lotus in `95.

My brand, "iatek" (eye-ŭ-tek) is a acronym, compound word and tech slang. I thought of "iatek" when I was working on information architecture inspired by RSW, founder of TED. It was the late 90's when "tek" became slang for "technology" or "technique". The "ia" could also mean "interactive" or "internet and". So, iatek is my generic "tek" brand.

  • interactive technique
  • interactive technology
  • internet and technology
  • information and technology
  • information architecture technology

Here are some recent projects...

Pride


I pretty happy to be in the top 0.09% on StackOverflow. 5 of my projects have been featured on Product Hunt. I've been part of many great teams that have accomplished great things. I was even part of the pre-Y2K compliance team at Digital in `99. I most proud of my family, especially my two sons.
