Esme Acevedo

Senior Developer At Ortus Solutions

I am a Senior Developer at Ortus Solutions, Corp. My professional journey began about 17 years ago as a graphic/web designer, in the time of tables and frames. After graduating from California State University with a major in Art and a minor in Computer Science, I was hired to work along CFML developers. Although I was mainly involved in the design aspect of the projects, I gradually became more involved in assisting the programming team.

Eventually, I returned to school to complete a technical degree, with an emphasis in software development. Now, in addition to my experience with graphic design tools, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Indesign, etc., I have added application development tools, which include CFML, MySQL, Javascript, CSS, Bootstrap, Coldfusion, Coldbox, ContentBox to the list.

Away from the computer, I have a love for the outdoors. As John Muir said, “ Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” Besides washing the spirit clean, nature clears my mind to solve programming issues or inspires me to create designs.
