About Me

boise, idahoHi. I’m Michael Richardson. I’m a web developer in Boise, Idaho.

I’ve been a web developer since 1999. For eleven years, starting in 2008, I built and operated Timeglider, too, a web-based application for making and sharing interactive timelines (acquired by Preceden in 2019), used by over 500,000 students and educators around the world. Long ago, I made furniture, and then for a few years was a bookbinder with Dan Kelm at the Wide Awake Garage in Massachusetts. My background as a graphic designer, craftsperson, and writer gives me a full set of tools for working with small- to medium-sized companies. I can even proof-read ; )  You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more agile, responsive, creative, and thoughtful programmer in Famous Potatoes.

As a “full stack” developer, I work with back-end programming and database languages (PHP, MySQL) as well as front-end graphic and interaction design (HTML, JavaScript). My work ranges from simple WordPress launches, perhaps tweaking existing templates, to highly customized application development for unusual business needs. I often work with designers who provide graphic direction and concepts.
