About Me

I'm Eric Sorenson, a Software Engineer in Evanston, Illinois. I'm an advocate for open web standards, and I love the power and flexibility of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I build software with small teams focusing on user needs, continuous improvement, and automated testing while following the Agile Manifesto principles and Scrum Guide framework.

AMBIENT Quiet and relaxing sounds combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form with an emphasis on tone and atmosphere. MINIMAL TECHNO Electronic dance music that features a fast beat and synthesized sounds usually without vocals or a conventional popular song structure.

This clock was inspired by a CSS Animation article by Donovan Hutchinson. Instead of using CSS animations, I used JavaScript's requestAnimationFrame function to update the angle of the hands as the monitor refreshes.
