I'm Anthony, a San Francisco Bay Area web developer

How I help

Comprehensive web apps

As an experienced full stack developer I can make your entire web application from start to finish with solid foundations.

Minimum Viable Products

I can quickly create small apps from scratch to help test a product market fit.

Additions

I'm happy to add features to your existing web application.

Maintenance

Hire me for regular package and server updates, backups, etc so your application keeps running smoothly & safely.

Debugging

Have me find and resolve bugs in your web application.

Rewrites

If you have a legacy application I can recreate it with modern technology to improve stability, extensibility, and more.

More help

Some areas I focus on
I'm happy to work in many areas and I love this stuff specifically

Realtime interaction

I build realtime web apps where users can see each other's changes immediately. For example, comments left by one user will show up to others without having to refresh the page.

Rapid development

I use rapid web application development frameworks to iterate and get something useful in front of your users quickly.

Responsive Interfaces

My interfaces are responsive to their environment and I build them just once to work everywhere from mobile phones to desktops.

Robust solutions

I set robust foundations to support a large number of users while remaining extensible for future development and refinement.

A few things I can make work
There's so many possibilities; I've listed a few here

Social APIs

I can connect your app to Facebook, Twitter, etc. Whether you want your app to simply post there or run complex queries I can help.

Mapping

I can lookup addresses and display related information on a map.

Financial / E-commerce

I can add credit card, ACH, and other financial functionality to your web app through APIs like Stripe.

Databases

I can design for both relational databases (like MySQL) and NoSQL databases (like MongoDB) to store your data.

Performance & Scalability

I can make your application work well under many conditions such as when there are lots of users, on low powered devices, and/or on slow internet connections.

Security

I can add security features to your app from the simple CAPTCHA to complex fraud detection algorithms.

Algorithms

If you have a complex problem, I can find existing solutions, or create new solutions.

Let me keep an eye on the big tech picture
To keep your project growing smoothly

Architecture

There are innumerous technology choices when developing a web app. Though I lean towards what I know when developing, those choices are still wide. For example, if you have a lot of unstructured data coming from APIs you may be well served with a NoSQL database like MongoDB. If you have known structured data, a relational database such as MySQL can be a strength. Or maybe you need to get off the ground quickly and something like Firebase will suffice. A few other architecture choices that commonly have to be made include hosting, design frameworks, and language/transpilation choices.

Workflow

I lean towards agile workflows in web app development because we often can't see the end at the start. However sometimes a clear picture is already in place and we can benefit from something more structured. I can help us decide and customize a work-flow that will best suit our collaboration to meet your needs.

Code

Whoever wrote it, I can look over code and provide feedback on how we might improve it. A few examples include adopting a style standard, adding unit tests, or re-architecting sub components.

Logical & emotionally aware

I find it helpful to make choices on real data when I can, follow my gut when I have to move quickly, and work around or get over emotionally difficult situations when needed (e.g.; depersonalizing criticism).

Balanced

I believe taking care of my body and emotions keeps my intellect sharp. I keep a work-life balance by hiking, traveling, working out, and spending time with my family.
