Graham Lambertson

Creative Technologist

Hello. I'm an experienced Front-End Developer, living and working in Austin, Texas. Over the years, I've built and maintained open Web standards projects in Marketing/Advertising and built eLearning modules in the Healthcare and Oil & Gas sectors.

I'm constantly exploring new technologies while staying rooted in stable, proven solutions. Here are a few things that are very front-of-mind at the moment: Site performance optimization, AngularJS, static site generators, RESS web development, and Ionic.

Recently, Zurb announced the stable release of Foundation for Emails 2. I've been really impressed with the the solutions they've given us to overcome the tedium and verbiage that makes responsive HTML emails one of the saddest tasks we do.

I've used a good handful of static site generators such as Kirby and Pico. One that I've recently picked up is Jekyll. It's easy to get up-and-running, straight-forward, and exensible.
