About Me

Hello, I am Chris Lentz a 34 year old technology blogger and web developer from Atlanta, Georgia.

Chris Lentz

After writing for various sites for a few months, I decided to launch ATLChris.com which is a technology and internet blog with a little bit of personal stuff tossed in! I blog about technology news, hardware and software reviews, web development, UI design, and personal rants and editorials!

I fell in love with technology at a very young age when my father bought home a DOS prompt computer for the first time. My first website I ever created was back in May of 2000 it was created using Microsoft Frontpage and the free hosting service Tripod. Since then I have learned to code HTML, PHP, MySQL, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and other common web development languages.

I am also using a the web analytics service, called Google Analytics. Google Analytics is the king of all kings when it comes to web analytics. Learning how to use the advanced feature on Google Analytics can be a challenge, but once you do learn, you will understand why it towers over all other analytics suites.
