My freelance developer portfolio showcases web programming to build the back end of websites. Back-end programming refers to the logic to make a website function. You can see the results of my work when you see what the website can do.
A graphic designer handles the actual web design of what you see. I collaborate with graphic/web designers to build the functionality into websites.
Custom Website Development
Custom websites often start with an idea to create a new online startup business, or logic that is unique to your brick and mortar business. Custom websites are built from scratch to meet your exact project needs.
Benefits of Custom Websites
- Built from scratch to meet your exact needs
- Less code bloat
- Less ongoing maintenance and security issues
WordPress Website Development
Most websites I am hired to create are highly customized WordPress web applications.
I partner with graphic and web designers for custom WordPress website design while I provide the custom WordPress development services of building the site. I also provide programming support to code functionality, migrate websites live and provide web hosting and maintenance services for their clients.
Benefits of WordPress
- Build just about any functionality like directory websites, content managers, eCommerce web applications, member websites…
- Fast development due to the nature of open source collaboration (i.e. plugins)
- Faster development time than custom website = affordable solution for small businesses
Back End Website Development
Building a back end programming portfolio is a challenge. Back end web development refers to programming the logic and functionality of a website. With this type of work, there is little to see. You can not see the work visually, just the results of it.
When reviewing examples in my web development portfolio, keep in mind I did not design how these websites look but coded how they behave.
I have been providing website development services since the late 1990’s and have worked on hundreds of website development projects.
These projects range from custom web applications to developing websites with open source applications (mainly withWordPress).
Hundreds of other jobs like website upgrades, redesigns, debugging and problem solving on every level are excluded as projects in my web portfolios.
Many websites I have worked on are not included in my website portfolio because they are white label. My services are often outsourced to me by web designers, graphic artists, and marketing companies. You can read more about the types of clients thathire freelance web developershere.
