My name is Mike Ems. I have been a Web Developer for 20 years. While the title 'Web Developer' used to be enough, today, I am a 'Full Stack Engineer' responsible for architecting and developing scalable, high-performance, cross-browser web applications using modern software development design principles and coding standards while keeping in mind accessibility, usability and maintainability. Whew, that's a mouth-full!
I build really big websites. I mostly work with marketing, consulting, and software development companies, but occasionally I will take on clients directly.
You may have noticed I build GIS (Geographic Information System) web mapping applications. I have many years experience in the ESRI ecosystem and have been using open-source GIS more and more frequently.
