JLW started in 2003 after owner Jerry Hirsch finished his 7 year service to the United States Army. Having served as an Information Operator / Analyst Jerry had already gained an abundance of experience in the Information Technology field. His love for design drove him to learn how to program for the web. With an HTML for Dummies reference guide in hand he set out on a journey that would span a 20 year career. From designing simple web sites for the Army as an active duty soldier to working as a Software Engineer (civilian) for the Department of Defense Jerry has continued to learn and advance his skill set. JLW is a way to allow Jerry to explore technologies otherwise not available to him while working his day job. Jerry is a very well rounded developer and technologist.
