About

Who are you?

I'm Caleb Evans, a web developer with many passions: programming, spending time with family and friends, watching (and quoting) movies, trampolining, and eating quality pizza. I currently reside in Carlsbad, California, having just finished my Bachelor's in Computer Science at CSU San Marcos.

What do you do?

Since 2010, I've been programming for school and for fun. My most prominent work includes a plethora of web apps and useful tools, many of which were created to automate what I grew tired of doing manually. Others I created simply for fun.

Why do you code?

Besides the fact that I greatly enjoy coding, I make it my aim to code for Christ, who has always walked with me as my Lord, my Friend, and my Savior. I code because I believe the work of my hands glorifies God through the creativity I express, and ultimately, through the lives enriched by my projects.

How many languages do you speak?

I am fluent in over six million forms of... ha, just kidding. I am fluent in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and PHP, since most of my projects are web-based. I'm also well-versed in Python, and I fiddle with Bash regularly in an effort to improve my developer workflow.

What is your favorite language?

If I could choose only one, my favorite language would definitely be TypeScript because of how many bugs it saves me from every time I write it. Plus, I thoroughly enjoy working with the ES6 language features like promises, destructuring, and arrow functions.

What is your code editor of choice?

For years, I used Atom, but nowadays, I use VS Code for its powerful feature set, excellent TypeScript support, and better performance on M1 Macs. You can view my configuration for both editors at my public dotfiles repository.

Tabs or spaces?

That depends. In VS Code (with the "Sticky Tab Stops" setting enabled), spaces behave the same as tabs when used as indentation, so I generally conform to the convention of whichever language I'm writing in.

What's the story behind your project icons?

I actually made them myself; each icon is written in pure SVG markup.
