About Drew Town

I've been developing websites for as long as I can remember. My development career began by writing websites by using raw PHP and has developed extensively from there. Now I mainly develop internal web applications using ASP.NET Core and Vue.js to support our users complete their jobs more efficiently and with less errors.
