Self Progress, Press & Cover letter

 

I think the web has amazing potential, and I love to push its limits.
I'm constantly trying to learn something new and improve myself.
I am also very interested in the progress of the mobile web, and think that web apps can create a similar experience to native apps.

Here are some of my favorite projects:
iPad Simulator created with JS, CSS, HTML - alexw.me/ipad

I posted this project online and got amazing feedback with over 100K unique hits in just 3 weeks.
