Updates for April 2016
I should be getting some rest, but after sleeping all day and resting from having the stomach flu...I need something to keep me busy.
Wisconsin State Curling Association has a new site!

I recently finished a freelance project for the Wisconsin State Curling Association in which they received a completely redesigned website with new features too!  The site was originally maintained by a former colleague of mine and he passed it on down to me for the new design and upgrade to the CMS that the old site was using.

The Note Manager - An AngularJS Application

In April 2015, I had the opportunity to build an AngularJS application to showcase my coding skills.  It was fun building this little app that did not have a backend whatsoever.  Everything was client-side, even the data storage via local storage in the browser.  Check out the demo here at http://notemanager.bryanlor.com.

If you would like to view the source code, it's available at BitBucket: https://bitbucket.org/lorbs28/note-manager.

Site Update - Updated "About" and "Resources"

I have added new skills and have updated the skill ratings on the "About" page.  I have also changed the rating system around and added a brief explanation for the rating system for the skills so that it's more clear.  The "Resources" page has also been updated with a few new links for AngularJS.  Happy coding!
