Ryan Bott

Mobile & Web Developer from Norman, OK with my roots in Pittsburgh, PA.

I began tinkering with Web Design and code back in the days of Xanga and MySpace, taking the source codes from templates and learning how to cut, alter and change backgrounds to create appealing themes. This is all before I ever knew what “HTML” was, what it stood for or that I could ever make a living using it.

I took what I learned then and haven’t stopped since. Along the way I dove deep into the rabbit hole, currently focusing on Ruby on Rails, front and back-end JavaScript and iOS Development.

about me | Ryan Bott

When I’m not pushing pixels I like to play board games and drink copious amounts of loose-leaf teas. Drawing up mockups and wireframes on whiteboards, effect pedals and music gear as an ambient guitar and keyboard player. I climb rocks when I can, take my dog, Rosco, out to play as much as possible and enjoy traveling around the world without much more then a backpack and a passport, taking in the culture first hand.
