But as far as work goes:
- 14 years website development - "Soup to Nuts"
- Advanced PHP & MySQL Database
- From large custom to simple websites
- Usually with my clients from 7-10 years
- Giving clients what they want from a website
- Work with my clients directly as I do the work
- No sub-contracting to oversees or other programmers
- You provide the content and I work with it until it's perfect
Since FreshPeek began in 2003, I have been able to create close personal long-term relationships with most my clients. Preferring to work directly with owners, my goal has always been to see the smile on their faces.
Coming from the Windows desktop and .net environment, I was very pleased to experience PHP and MySQL running on Apache servers to be a more stable environment and loved the Open Source concept, I have created over 50 websites.
Providing the complete design & development of websites along with back end, server and hosting administration on dedicated servers has enabled me to become familiar with all aspects of serving up websites in the internet.
Joomla became my platform of choice in 2010 because of the large amount of customizable components and plugins developed by the Open Source community. I have been working with it ever since.
Design, customize, maintain, update and technical support. Shopping carts, video/image galleries, forums, JomSocial, EasyBlog, AcyMailing, membership systems, events, Facebook, SEO, custom APIs with Infusionsoft and other systems, custom visitor stats, custom sales funnel analysis and a vast array of components and plugins.
