I'd love to share my knowledge with you!

Linux

In building out our WordPress Hosting platform, WPLauncher, I had to become an expert in Linux. I have spent countless hours creating installing software on Linux servers, provisioning Linux servers, creating cron jobs, etc.


PHP

I have spent 8 years honing my skills as a PHP programmer. I have used several Model View Controller (MVC) PHP frameworks, the most popular being Laravel. I have also built numerous WordPress plugins and themes. Over the past 8 years, I have built 100 sites using PHP as the primary backend programming language.


JQuery

I have built over 100 websites since I started programming 8 years ago. In the majority of those sites, I have used jQuery to speed up my front end scripting, to enable Ajax, and to allow for numerous other features. I have built WordPress plugins and themes that have used jQuery as well.
