Featured Client

Public Safety Training Institute

When their previous webmaster decided to change jobs, this client needed a new webmaster. The website is complicated, so they needed someone who could handle the technologies: PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, etc. They hired me to help out.

As with all websites and businesses, things change over time. In this case, I work with the client to provide additional capabilities, both in the administrative back-end of the website (where the client updates training classes) and in the front-end view visible to trainees and sponsors.

Custom websites like this one often take a more individual approach. Part of the challenge is to integrate changes with the original design. Where possible, I simplify the underlying code for future modifications. It's an ongoing process, rewarding for me as well as the client.
