Learn About Me

My name is Huckleberry Tate. I am a front end developer and UI designer. I did not always think that this was what I wanted to do with my life. In the beginning I was a very talented artist.

I went to college to study fine art. While in school, I took a class called Intermedia Arts. In that class I learned the very basics of html. From that class, I began to explore and understand web design and development. I would take websites apart and sort of reverse engineer them to see how they were working.

As the years have gone by, I have broadened and deepened my study and practice of web design and development. I am always trying to learn as much as I can in the field.

To get an idea of what it is like to work with me, read what some of my clients have had to say.

These are my own clients that I do work for on an as-needed basis. I developed www.caliberproductsinc.com from scratch. Also for Caliber I created an online product configurator using javascript and html - http://www.caliberproductsinc.com/configurator/index.html. I later put this software on a touchpad for their trade shows and in-store displays. I used Wordpress for www.logicare.com and am currently developing Accent’s new website using Wordpress.
