David Francis
Senior Interactive Developer
Bowdoin College Museum of Art

I am the Senior Interactive Developer for the Academic Technology and Consulting division at Bowdoin College. I arrived at Bowdoin from Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland where I was Web Developer for the Web Office. Prior to that I was the Web Coordinator for the University of Wyoming Libraries in Laramie, Wyoming.rnrnI got my start in Web programming while working as the Editorial Specialist at the Indiana University Mathematics Journal. When I began work there, the IUMJ was just preparing to launch a Web version of its journal. My boss immediately began buying textbooks on the (then) latest Web technologies and told me to start building! Some of the technologies I learned included Java, JavaScript, Perl, and SQL. When I moved to Wyoming, I was able to take a number of courses in computer science that helped me develop my programming skills. At Salisbury University, I made my first inroads into Microsoft technologies and started developing in Visual Basic and VBScript.
