My name is Zak Ruvalcaba and I have been researching, designing, and developing for the Web since 1995. I specialize in web and mobile web site and application development focusing on responsive user interface design, user experience, and usable presentation. I hold a Bachelor's degree from San Diego State University and a Master of Science in Instructional Technology from National University in San Diego.

My skill set includes various technologies and tools including HTML/HTML5, CSS/CSS3/LESS, JavaScript, jQuery/jQuery UI/jQuery Mobile, Ajax, JSON, ASPNET, SQL/T-SQL, VBNET, C#, Web Services, PHP, MySQL, Visual Studio, Dreamweaver, and more. I am a Microsoft Certified Application Developer for .NET (MCAD) and a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer for .NET (MCSD).

I have been teaching at the community college level for over 14 years at several community colleges including the San Diego Community College District, Mt. San Jacinto, and Palomar College. That experience has landed me the position of Associate Professor for the Front-End Web Developer Certificate Program at the San Diego Community College District's Continuing Education North City campus. Aside from my teaching duties I am also the full time web developer at MiraCosta College.

I have written several books on web development, including the Dreamweaver Unleashed series on Sam's Publishing, the Build Your Own ASPNET Website Using C# and VB series on SitePoint Press, Beginning Expression Web by Wrox Press, Murach's HTML5 and CSS3 by Mike Murach & Associates, Inc., and Murach's JavaScript and jQuery also by Mike Murach & Associates, Inc. I just recently finished my twelfth book titled Murach's Dreamweaver CC 2014 also by Mike Murach & Associates, Inc.
