I have been at it for 15 years, using everything that ran/runs in, on, or through a web page. I have three well-recognized programming certifications -- so I did somethings to prove competencies. [ I also have an unrelated graduate degree; not so relevant, but shows I'm educated. ]
Years ago lived and worked in Montana -- in
particular, as a community college instructor (Dawson College) in Glendive, MT.
Since then my experience has included teaching web programming at the college level.
I moved to Montana
permanently, Aug, 2013 (Bozeman).
I also know the West because I worked in a similar capacity as in Glendive at UND -- Williston , Williston, N.D. And, I was the high school sciences teacher in McIntosh, S.D. for 2 years. I have 20 graduate semester credits from the University of S. Dakota.
The best friends of my wife and I (friends of over 30 years) have lived in and around MT their entire life.
I am mainly here to be of good to the community. I will do only select work. I will do it either for free or for absolutely the lowest hourly rates. It is who ("what") I work for that matters the most to me. I work hourly and get paid for web products well-made; you like what you get, then you pay for the hours; if you are not satisfied, there is no charge. PLUS:
I never charge for work I have already done (but often use that
as a starting point).
Having a web presence, INCLUDING online a shopping facility
(if desired), for all local, small
businesses or non-profits for the lowest possible cost. And,
dynamic web sites that illustrate who they are in a useful, efficient and
impressive fashion. Sites will be made SEO (search engine
optimized) and found well by
all major search engines (no charge for this service).
Free online auction
software is offered to charities and good causes (hosted on my
secure site). AND will also provide a
full-feaured Content Management System for good causes (also
hosted on my secure site). Of course, I will also set up a CMS for
businesses, if they want a customized instance on their own server/host.
ALSO: To try an instance of the free, or
nearly free, commercial grade shopping cart (costing you some money only if
you need set-up help), just email me and request
your own sample instance, and I will
set you up with one on one of my secure hosted sites -- where you can do
ANYTHING, as a sample shopper or as a full
administrator. This way you can build your own site (yes, the software is a
site builder!) and use your own sample shopping cart site (all
self-explanatory) without setting up an instance on your site. You
can see if you like it, before requesting the free open-source kit.
AND: If you are interested in seeing a dynamic web site template, which you can use for free OR have me help you customize, you may email for information on this (again: letting you see a sample instance). Thanks.
