I’m Dennis Pipper rhymes with *zipper* (notice those two p’s together?) I teach computer courses (web design and development, primarily) at Lansing Community College, located in Lansing, Michigan, USA.

My hometown is Warren, Michigan where I grew up as the third child in my family. Sorry, I don’t know Eminem 😉 I eventually came to the East Lansing/Lansing area to attend Michigan State University.

After many Michigan winters and a lot of snow shoveling, I decided to move to Hawaii in 1990 to make aloha shirts for 10 months. When I returned to Michigan, I graduated with a degree in Telecommunication from MSU.

As most graduates from a Big Ten university do, I went to work as a radio personality in Lansing, then in Grand Rapids. I ended up at Lansing Community College by way of radio station WLNZ. My interests turned from radio to the Internet and brought me into teaching Internet-related courses at LCC.

My wife and I are blessed with 3 great kids. We are involved in our church and I still work on-air on the weekends at a Michigan radio station and weekdays on-air in Michigan’s Thumb at Positive County 103.7.

TOOLS OF THE TRADE

I use a 2012 Mac mini Server (late 2012) as my primary home machine and as a home server for media files, backup and a web server. My work machine is a 15″ MacBook Pro, thanks to LCC 🙂

All of my web development on a Mac is done in Sublimetext. My FTP program is YummyFTP.

When using a Windows based PC, I use the awesome (free) Notepad++ and (free) Filezilla for FTP.
