This website is a mini application I threw together for hiring managers to find out more about what I can do in software. I call it an application since you can interact with it as you would any other application. Albeit, I'm not coding any sign up and log in system here but I can assure you that I've created several of those in the past.

I'm always adding features to show case the results of my code and I welcome you to do what any senior dev would do to see if I can do that. However, as a hiring manager, I know you know that front end UX only scratches the surface of what a full stack web application requires. There's so much I do to launch and/or maintain my application projects. Security and spam control are the top two things on my mind when I have my IDE open. Next comes efficiency. When code runs slow, it's hard to test and if code is not written in PSR-2, it gets extremely hard to read. I've been involved in several "re-writes" of code bases and those are projects that are very hard to "estimate" completion, let alone charge the client for the time per hour. They get that look people get when their cell phone bill comes in and its 4 times the normal amount.

Let's get down to business...

I am experienced in leveraging agile frameworks to provide secure and well formed data between databases and users. I'm focused on Front-end technologies that make my applications look great across any device, in any view. My coding mindset is solid in making the best user experience throughout the application whilst blocking malicious data inputs and bot control.
