This is what I do
In a sentence, I code strong and stable php websites from server to database to visuals and beyond.
Since 2003, Al and Roy have worked together, 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 together & separately on a variety of other projects, including web applications, a PHP/MySQL-based CMS system, technological modernization of an existing organization, most recently Sherman Brothers Shoes and now BitLucid Programming.
In August of 2011 I incorporated in order to smooth the process of managing subcontractors and common expenses, among the other benefits. We 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 our strengths in this arena are: Security & Speed.
Security is paramount. Speed is critical.
Security is paramount.
We have seen too many sites burned by bad php coding practices and with their client or employee data under attack as a result. We 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. We are happy to code in Object Oriented style through Functional Programming style, we're flexible, especially in the case of existing legacy website codebases.
Speed is critical.
Overall, I generally enjoy the artistic nature of creating strong websites, and the challenge of writing solid and secure PHP code as a foundation.
