Obviously trust is a big element when it comes to asking someone to do some work for you, especially if you have no past experience working with the person. The only way that one can gauge how reliable someone is going to be, is by having a look at their previous work and taking the risk. Hopefully I can ease your worry of risk by letting you look through my previous work and telling you a little bit more about myself.
I mainly create and manage websites on the platforms WordPress and Shopify. I have had close to five years experience in website development and seen how rapidly the web has changed over time. The last two years of that I have worked on multiple Shopify websites, an ecommerce platform that is increasingly becoming very popular (If you are thinking of having an online shop, I highly recommend Shopify as a platform).
Throughout school I always had an interest in art and pursued it right into university by taking up an illustration degree. But that is not the only interest I have had. I was introduced to personal computers when I was six years old, and saw the introduction of the Internet with the dial-up modem. Having always had an appeal in computing I decided to do a computing degree; directly after completing the illustration degree. It was there that I really got to grips with web development and programming languages.
If you are looking to have a design sliced into a web page, then I can make sure that it structured pixel perfect. HTML is a markup language that is responsible for the structure of the webpage. Version 5 added new elements, attributes, and behaviors, and increased set of technologies that can allow for more diverse and powerful websites/applications. If there is an adventurous structure that you are after, then chances are that I can put it together.
CSS is used to style and animate the webpage. CSS3 is the latest version of the Cascading Style Sheets language that adds features like rounded corners, shadows, gradients, transitions or animations. It can be a very powerful tool for creating the greatest visual impact. I will make sure the website matches your design.
Ruby on Rails
Ruby on Rails, or simply Rails, is a web application framework written in Ruby. It speeds up development as it cuts out the repetition of what you would necessary do when writing PHP. It is also secure by making sure common loopholes are already covered. Rails is great if you want a custom web application or would like a plugin to an already set up website, like Shopify.
