About Me

I started my dive into programming when I was 11 or 12, when I discovered writing batch programs. I was instantly hooked, and from there began working on expanding my knowledge. Moving into web development seemed to be a logical step for myself, until I found myself only wanting to work on web based projects. I strive to bring the best to my clients, and as such I have employed my best practices when developing. Which are always:

SEO and Mobile Responsiveness

SEO and Mobile "friendliness" go hand in hand, in April, 2015 Google began taking mobile responsiveness into account when displaying their search results.
A study by the PEW institute showed that more people in the US have a smartphone (81%) than a desktop/laptop computer (74%)

Load Times

Load times are just as, if not more important that SEO/Mobile Responsiveness. In studies conducted by Amazon and Walmart they discovered a connection to slower loading times and converting visitors into customers. Walmart found that for every 100ms shaved from loading time equated to a 1% increase in sales.

SSL

For any site an SSL certification is a must, it gives trust in the customer seeing the lock and it helps rank your site higher on Google search results. But it doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg. You can get free SSL certification through LetsEncrypt, and while the certification is only good for 90 days it can be renewed free of charge at any time saving you money
