Rick Hurst Expert Profile

Photo

Rick has been a freelance software engineer since he graduated in the early 2000's. He has worked in the UK and America both as a freelance consultant and as a freelance developer. He is a very passionate and seasoned full stack developer, specializing in advanced front end user interface(UI) and user experience(UX).

Having worked as lead CSS3/HTML5 developer for a start up in the Bay area, Rick has bleeding edge experience in ensuring extremely complex systems have simple to use and intuitive interfaces.

Having worked with nearly all web technologies over the last decade he believes that there is no one size fits all technology. However, he is an advocate for using open source wherever possible and admittedly has an affinity for curly brackets.

Rick has a passion for CSS and UX. You will also often find him talking about JavaScript being a 'real' language, or that JavaScript on the server is “what the world has been missing”.

Between hitting up Las Vegas on the weekends and playing Magic the Gathering with his other coder friends, Rick is currently developing amongst other apps; a real-time unified social network for the trade show industry based in Las Vegas and a bidding platform for a crowdfunding app based in San Francisco.
