I’m Anthony Colangelo.

I build, write, and take photos.

I design and build websites and applications.

I’m a developer at Happy Cog and an open source-lover on Github.

Happy Cog

I love semantic markup, well-structured JavaScript, normalized databases, and writing Objective-C function names that are longer than a tweet.

I use pretty much everything I can get my hands on: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Ruby, Objective-C, and plenty more.

I've worked on things like jPanelMenu, the O Music Awards, the Happy Cog Way and a bunch of other Happy Cog ventures.

I write.

You can find me writing here, on A List Apart, and on Cognition.

Network Performance Testing

A List Apart

The internet is still growing to new markets with low bandwidth and less-than-ideal reliability. Have you tested what you build under those circumstances?

Save Your Eyes With f.lux

A List Apart

I thought eye strain didn't affect me, but then I started getting sharp headaches at the end of ever day. Ever since then, f.lux has been my hero.
