About

Hi there, my name is Warren Uhrich. I'm a team lead, project manager, instructor, and world wide web developer in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Experience

Once out of school I worked for a year at AgileStyle as a front end developer. There, I honed my HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript skills while prototyping Ruby on Rails applications and skinning Squarespace templates for clients.

The following four years of my career were spent at SOS Media Corp as a web developer. At SOS Media Corp I was able to stretch my PHP legs in building creative, fast, and effective WordPress web sites. These sites had to be built in such a fashion that they can be compliant with client needs in regards to social media marketing, Google ranking and Adwords campaigns, as well as capturing valuable information or form submissions from their customers.

2019 through 2020 I was a college instructor at InnoTech College, teaching adult students fullstack website development. Technologies covered in the InnoTech Web Diploma program included: HTML5, CSS3, SASS, Git, JavaScript, Node.JS Package Manager (NPM), Vue, WordPress, PHP, Composer, Laravel, and more.

From the beginning of 2020 through much of 2021 I worked carefully with the University of Alberta as lead instructor for TECHCareers: A Manpower Program, teaching and coaching adult students on website and application development. Technologies covered in this program include: Trello, Google Workspace (previously GSuite), Visual Studio Code, HTML5, CSS3, Git, JavaScript, Node.JS Package Manager (NPM), React, PHP, WordPress, Visual Studio, C#, .NET Core, and more. After working on and with the TECHCareers offering, I was the initial head and lead of the Faculty of Extension's new Full-Stack Web Development Diploma (see their video about the project here.)

After instructing I got my hands dirty with some code once more with DATS (Digital Action Tracking System), an incredible online software developed to help businesses keep their internal processes organized.

Education

I attended the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) for 2 years, graduating from the Digitial Media & IT program. My focus during my time studying there was application development and web technologies.

Free Time

When I'm not working you can usually find me exploring various web-related topics, checking out the latest in video-gaming, or fiddling with various operating systems for the fun of it. Wiping a hard drive and trying a new Linux distribution - or an interesting open source project like FreeDOS - is just another day for me.
