Welcome to ScrappyZone, personal website of Joel McBeth!


The purpose of this website is display information about me, the things I'm doing, and the projects that I'm working on. This website is also an on going project of mine to gain experience working with ASP.NET and adminstering a windows webserver.

About Me

I am 25 years old and I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2009. I have a Master of Science in Computer Science as well as undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science.

In my free time I mostly like to watch movies, play video games, and hang out with friends and my fiancee. I also enjoy programming, building/repairing computers, and number theory. I like to consider that my cooler side!

About This Site

I registered a few years ago with the intentions of using it for my personal website. I previously had a site written in php with a blog, news, pictures, and comments. I never kept it updated because I was unhappy with the architecture and design.

Now there's ScrappyZone, this was originally the name of my wireless LAN and Scrappy is a nickname i've been using for my "internet persona." This site will be written in C# and ASP.NET MVC and will be running on an Internet Information Services (IIS) server and Windows Server 2008 Standard.

Unfortunately, I find it difficult to be creative artistically, so I lack the skills to design the neccesary images to create a fantastic looking website. So, with that in mind this website will be designed to be simplistic and functional.
