The Web Programmer: Kyle Keiper
As of 2019, I work for Stark State College. Some of the responsibilities I have are maintaining the website (www.starkstate.edu), working on the student / employee portal (my.starkstate.edu) and various internal applications the faculty use.
I’ve been doing this programming stuff since I was 16, by starting with an “Intro To HTML” class in High School; We barely touched the surface of HTML, but I found it fascinating to be able to tell the computer what to do. I had always wanted to be an engineer of some sort, but when I learned that I, an average person, was actually able to tell the computer what to do, I couldn’t put that down.
Like you may have noticed, I started doing this HTML stuff back when I was in high school. I went to Wadsworth High, where part of my course work was a vocational program in Web Design and Programming. My course was 2 years long, covering subjects ranging from HTML and ASPX to Robotics. (Neat little aside: I won the Honda Innovation Award in 2010)
Starting college in 2011, I attended the Stark State College. I graduated in 2013, with an Associate’s Degree in Web Development.
WRL Advertising, Inc. hired me in December of 2011 as a Web Programming Intern; after a successful three months, they offered me a Contract-to-Hire position, so upon graduation from Stark State College, I was employed at WRL Advertising as a lead programmer. My experience is strongest in WordPress and Laravel, but I’ve had stints of Rails 2 and Drupal mixed in there.
In 2015, I switched companies, leaving WRL Advertising, Inc. to work for Stark State College. Currently, this is where I work.
