Skills

PHP Expertise

As a PHP developer, I’ve had exposure to common CMS frameworks such as Drupal and Joomla. While I’ve never used Laravel in a professional environment (yet!) I’m well aware of MVC design patterns as well as knowledge of object-oriented PHP programming. I have strong knowledge of common PHP, Composer, PHP libraries and using PSR-2 coding standards.

WordPress Expertise

This is by far the most experienced area of expertise. I’ve worked on many types of WordPress builds ranging from small personal sites to huge e-commerce WordPress builds. I have experience in managing WordPress with Docker, managing WordPress with version control such as Git. WooCommerce, used in both e-commerce and non-e-commerce fashions, scrubbing hacked WordPress sites clean, writing custom WordPress plugins and themes, WordPress security and optimization. I’ve worked on WordPress websites as both a front-end developer and back-end developer. I’ve also used WordPress in a headless approach as well as worked with its REST API endpoints on various projects.
