A very wise person once told me,
“Figure out what you love to do in life,
and then find a way to make money at it.”
I’ve always tried to remember that wisdom. I’m a professional Web developer who loves to help people develop online. I’ve been developing/programming, designing and marketing online since 1998. I’m at my best when I’m helping someone or helping a business succeed. It’s taken me over 40 years to realize this, but this is what makes me happy.
I do custom PHP development!
I also love the fast paced, challenging and changing nature of Web development. There’s always something new to learn. Where some developers would cringe at the thought of developing something custom, I get enthused by the thought. I’ve developed custom content management systems (CMS) as well as custom shopping cart systems (ECommerce) for many years.
I’m experienced with several common products including WordPress, Joomla and osCommerce (E-Commerce). I’ve worked with MVC Frameworks, such as, CakePHP, Zend, Laravel, Symfony and CodeIgniter. For most custom applications, I like to work with CodeIgniter due to it’s flexibility. For larger projects I tend to lean towards Symfony, again for flexibility.
For many years, I installed, configured, developed and supported several CRM systems using SugarCRM Community Edition (CE). I have been fortunate enough to have seen SugarCRM grow from v2.0 into the solid CRM product it is today. The highly successful SugarForge project, JJWDesign Google Maps for SugarCRM, has now been forked into SuiteCRM. It’s my way of giving back to the online community, in the hope that if you need further help, you will contact me for paid consulting and development services.
