WZC.dev is the umbrella that contains all the projects I've been developing. The idea is to streamline access to everything created here.
So to answer the first question early, what does WZC stand for? Simply put, these are my initials ("My creativity knows no bounds." - Jeremy Clarkson probably).
A little about me.
My name is Will, and I've been doing web development work for over ten years, focusing primarily on the back end, essentially making things work. Building websites and creating online tools have been a hobby of mine throughout my life. I have always focused on "what can I provide for free?". This focus and my hobby have combined to create what you see today with WZC.dev.
As for my personal life, I live in the United States and currently work as a mechanic on the M1 Abrams platform (the jobs probably not what you'd expect). This job has taken me worldwide, where I've met many great people through these journeys. Spending time in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, one thing stayed consistent, my hobby. I've used this skill to create many tools to help co-workers and myself get the job done efficiently.
In my job, it has led me to live in vastly different places across the United States. Never being able to settle in one spot too long, it became difficult to predict my ability to run servers in-house for small projects. This led me to rely on web hosting companies, many of which weren't what I was looking for, from database issues to lack of support.
All this brought me to set up my web server using Google's Cloud Platform. After many years of running websites this way, I found I could help others by onboarding them to my web server.
These experiences led me to open my doors to anyone wanting to host their own website free of the major companies and lack of one-on-one support.
WZC.dev holds the solution to issues I've faced, and as a tool, it may also contain a solution for you.
