This is what I do
In a sentence, I code strong and stable php websites from server to database to visuals and beyond.
I have build complex web applications for the web since 2003. I starting out working on the browser based ninja game NinjaWars.net in php and mysql, transitioning it to postgresql, html5, a templating system, and making a long list of other improvements over the years. Since then I have worked individually and with teams on a variety of other projects, including web applications in React.js, a PHP/MySQL-based CMS system, technological modernization of an existing organization, most recently Ellucian, Aquinas Learning, Sherman Brothers Shoes and now Roy Ronalds Programming.
I specialize in technology consultation, including web programming, creating websites from the ground-up, or recreating them where they already exist but need some love. Two of my focuses in this arena are: Security & Speed.
Security is paramount. Speed is critical.
Security is paramount.
I have seen too many sites burned by bad coding practices and with their client or employee data under attack as a result. I have done a lot of security cleanup work on sites that were coded by programmers without any oversight, which resulted in compromised databases and a site that -looked- fine but was full of security holes. Generally one of the first things that I do with a site is review it's password security for the presence of strong cryptography, often a pain point with naively programmed php websites that leads to problems. I am happy to code in Object Oriented style through Functional Programming style, I'm flexible, especially in the case of existing legacy website codebases.
Speed is critical.
Overall, I generally enjoy the creative nature of building useful websites, and the challenge of writing solid and secure application code as a foundation.
