First, the “Human” Version

If you have something you want done involving anything that has to do with web development I can do it or have done it, or can find out how to do it, or know somebody that can help you. 🙂 Let’s talk about it, using normal everyday language, and develop a plan!

 

Web Development and Programming

I’m a full-stack web developer specializing in website development and programming using PHP, MySQL as well as Javascript, HTML and CSS. I’m an expert in the programmatic manipulation of modern CMS and E-commerce suites such as WordPress and Magento. I’m also an expert in modern PHP frameworks such as Laravel, CakePHP and CodeIgniter and front-end frameworks such as jQuery, Angular, and Ember.  Beyond that, I’m also an expert in specialized APIs for e-commerce such as Stripe, PayPal and Chargebee and other integrations for things like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.  For a complete list of my various web development skills that I’ve worked with over the last 17 years of my professional web development career, please see my skills page.

 

Web Server and Database Administration/Maintenance/Optimization

I’m an expert in Linux web server administration in both Apache2 and Nginx. While I favor Ubuntu I’m also comfortable in CentOS as well as other less known distros. I’m an expert in MySQL database administration and also well versed in NoSQL such as MongoDB and have started to work with Big Data solutions such as Hadoop and VoltDB and hold a professional certificate from MIT in Tackling the Challenges of Big Data. I have configured web and data servers that have served billions of requests per month.

 

Executive Management, Lead Developer, Technical Project Management

Beyond my technical expertise, I’m also trained and have decades of experience in both the management of projects and of people. I have worked as a business owner, a CTO, in sales management, in call center management, as the Lead/Senior Developer on hundreds of projects and have experience in the Agile methods of Kanban and Scrum. I’m well versed in traditional project management tools such as Wrike and Asana, as well as in software project management and CI tools such as JIRA and repository management such as GIT.
