I am Toby Mackenzie of North-East Ohio. I currently live in Cleveland and work in Akron as a web developer for Cogneato. There I do both front- and back-end development as well as other tasks, such as basic server administration. I enjoy web development and am particularly interested in build processes and code organization. I have at least some interest in most areas of the web field though. I try to keep up to date with the never-ending stream of information, tools, options, and news.

I have spent plenty of time at Cogneato working in/with:

  • PHP
  • Symfony
  • MySQL
  • CentOS / Linux servers
  • Bash scripting
  • Apache
  • HTML 5
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Qooxdoo
  • jQuery
  • Adobe Fireworks
  • SASS
  • Require.js

To a lesser degree here or in other capacities, I have worked with:

  • WordPress
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Classic ASP
  • SQL Server
  • XML / XSL
  • Microsoft Excel

I do some of the work on the CMS that drives our sites, most of the initial development work for the many of the sites we build and work on, and some of the continued development on many of our sites. Some of the more notable / interesting sites I have worked on are:

You can also see some of my code in my github repos, where I work on code that I use for projects at my job and/or my personal projects. Examples include a JavaScript class system and library / codebase, and a Symfony project starting point and helper bundle. These are not to a stable point, but I do use the JS stuff in my projects at Cogneato.
