An important thing that search engines such as Google notice when ranking a webpage is how optimized the images are. Optimized images mean fast loading times. But how do you go about optimizing your images? In this article we'll go into the details of how to use the jQuery File Upload plugin, as well as the Rails CarrierWave Gem, to create optimized images, store them in Amazon S3, and then cache them for fast download anywhere in the world.
Because I'm self-taught, it's not always very easy to represent to others what I know, so I created this list of indepdendent courses that I've completed. There are many other things I've trained in that aren't listed here, but I've chosen to restrict this list to those courses that I've fully completed.

There are a lot of webmasters around and then there is one master of web programming and development: Allen Mackley. Allen knows every web application in and out, listens to his clients and will go to any length to execute the project, in an innovative yet lucid way. I betatested the cmiVFX site when Allen revamped it from a confusing and very complex site into an appealing and easy to use website. I have worked with Allen for two years. Apart from being brilliant, he is the most pleasant person to work with. I sincerely hope I can work with Allen some day soon again!
Allen Mackley has been a key factor in the restoration of a previously damaged series of web applications that were built by inexperienced programmers and is an asset to quality control. I hope to continue to hire Allen in the future for many projects that come to fruition. He works best with adequate communication and that can stimulate his creative response to help make even better production decisions. I recommend Allen to anyone that asks, and to utilize his research skills, which have made a significant difference during our time working together.
Allen is a great guy first of all, great attitude and he totally loves what he does. I have the pleasure to work with him and I can't think of anyone better for making web apps happen, he has it all, you can shoot him an idea and he just makes it happen really quick. So if you need anything web related, Allen is your man for the job.
