Web Dev, since 1994
While I have been developing websites professionally since 1994, co-founded a company that became the largest web-dev shop in the state, and created multiple official web sites for a Governor of a neighboring state; today I got certified in Web Development.
I have worked with literally hundreds of clients over the past 20 years to design and/or develop dozens and dozens of websites. Not only am I good at it, it’s one of my favorite things to do. I legitimately enjoy helping people get their ideas translated into standards based, semantically correct, secure, validated websites.
Why Web Development Certification?
As a part of my continuing education I decided to go ahead and take the web development class. I did so because I wanted to not only get certified; but also to make sure I was up to date with the latest web development techniques and standards. While I read and write HTML and CSS as well ( better? ) than I do English, I always guard against thinking I know it all.
For 10 years I specialized in creating WordPress sites. WordPress is a great platform that allowed me to use my knowledge of HTML, CSS, and PHP. While I still favor WordPress to launch websites, I am familiar with a number of other content management systems. I have been experimenting with Flask and Django lately to leverage my new Python skills to create dynamic websites. The fact is that once you have a solid understanding on the underlying technologies it is easy to learn new ways to create a website.
Why Hire Me to Create Your Website
I have the experience and skills to create modern websites, but most importantly I have years of experience helping clients with their websites. I also no longer have the overhead that agencies or web-dev shops have. My clients get world class results with one single point of contact who is solely responsible for their site at a reasonable price. If something isn’t working just right, or if changes need to be made, they can call me directly. No passing the buck, no excuses, just results.
I can design your site myself or work with your graphic designer. I can take your napkin sketch and send you back a web ready graphic for you to approve. Of course my sites work on everything from phones to tablets to huge computer monitors. I never invoice my clients for final payment until they are 100 percent satisfied with the results. I’m not finished with the job until everyone agrees the site is ready to launch.
