I’m Erica Peers,
Frontend Developer and Space Cadet.
I’ve loved web development ever since I taught myself HTML and CSS when I was 10 years old. Learning new techniques and technologies is a lot of fun, troubleshooting is an interesting challenge, and cleaning up code is like a cleansing ritual for the soul.
I also love my husband, our two dogs, and the life we have together in Hartland, Wisconsin (although we dream of moving to Wyoming and getting to see mountains every day), but you didn’t come here to read about my personal life, did you? Ah, well. Read on to learn more about my professional life.
