My name is James and my expertise is PHP and MySQL database driven websites, applications and plugins. I have 15+ years of experience in the field, having dabbled in many different database driven website solutions including my own creations, Joomla, WordPress, Drupal and Laravel. My resume information can be found here.
Most of my work has been as part of a larger team, building and maintaining the sites for our organization and clients, however I also manage my own development business creating web solutions for individual and business clients. Find my personal business card/site at warkensoft.net.
I have found that by far the most extensible and easy-to-use website platform has been WordPress and as such I recommend it as my content management system of choice for smaller sites. It is easy to host, well supported by many hosting providers, and powerful enough for most simple business or personal sites.
For larger, or more complex web applications, I typically recommend building something from the ground up using the Laravel framework. I bring plenty of experience to the table in this field of development, having designed a number of larger web applications for a variety of clients including individuals, businesses and educational institutions.
