Hello! I'm Bo Allen.
Full Stack Developer
I have extensive experience with full-stack web development, primarily on the LAMP stack. I've built numerous performant and maintainable custom web applications and business systems that have powered production ecommerce processes for years.
I enjoy and work with other languages and technologies as well, such as Go, Python, Node.js, MongoDB, and Lua.
I have been doing web design and development for 24 years.
I like making games. You'll find my games (and other side projects) at bitwisecreative.com.
The image to the left is actually a self-contained game cartridge for my favorite game engine, PICO-8!
I've participated in a couple game jams, and have created other games and game templates.
I'm working on bigger game projects with the Godot game engine.
I like writing music. Although I've been writing songs for decades, I didn't release anything until 2020.
My best physical instrument is the drums, but I can also play the guitar, bass, and piano. I can even sing, kind of, I think...
I write all my music with a midi keyboard and the Reason DAW.
I love my family far more than anything else in the world!!!
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
