The Skinny: I'm Wes Bos, a web developer, UI designer and speaker from Toronto. I love business, the internet, cutting edge technology and best practices. I've been creating websites for around 9 years and have become pretty good at it. I hang out on Twitter and would love to meet you.
I learn from the community and love to share what I have learned back. I regularly have speaking events on everything from HTML5 to UI/UX. I’m part of the amazing Ladies Learning Code where I instruct the WordPress courses. I’m also the lead instructor of a longer 3 month course at HackerYou
Over the years I’ve had many jobs from big corporations to small design agencies, if you’re interested in more, check out my LinkedIn. I have graduated of Ryerson University’s Business Technology Management program where I obtained my Bachelor of Commerce in enterprise resource development. Its a fancy way of saying that I really know how technology and business should work together.
When not creating websites, I love to spend my time with my beautiful
girlfriend Fiance wife Kaitlin, my family and friends. In the summer I rebuild and ride vintage racing bikes. I like to fancy myself as a good cook and have been known to make some pretty killer pulled pork.
Thanks to Chris Gruggen for most photos you see of me on this site.
