Web Development

50


50 per hour - Virtual OK

Experienced Developer, specializing in WordPress. Use this service if you:

    · Need plugins installed and configured
    · Need a theme installed and configured
    · Would like modifications to your theme or plugins
    · Want page speed improvements beyond the 3 Plugin Package
    · Need your site moved or your domain linked to your site

In the process of fine-tuning an Integrated WordPress Bundle system. This package uses the "natural", built-in settings of the standard Apache server, WordPress and the viewers browsers to deliver static pages quickly and to keep them in the browsers cache for a reasonable length of time. This means they can be viewed again and snap back and forth in an instant. This is not magic, just an understanding how things work in the background and following the rules at each stage of the game.

If you have an existing site and would like to see it improved, my approach would be to download it in it's entirety, then start over again with this improved approach. This could apply to any site, including one developed on a platform other than WordPress. The benefit would be a cleaner, faster loading site and an improved base structure. Additional plugins can be added, but they will be carefully vetted to ensure they adhere to the guideline of having a single stylesheet, a single additional JavaScript file, as well as a single call for additional fonts, if needed.

Clarence was patient and communicative, and didn't give up as I provided messy/wring/incomplete information. When I finally got him what he actually n...eeded, he fixed the situation very quickly. The reason he took longer than initially estimated was down to me, not him. A great experience, and I got where I needed to be. Thanks!show more

About Clarence Bos

Just as in university, when five courses are taken each semester, each of us likely has a variety of interests that we engage in on a regular basis, if we are able to. Mine are programming, carpentry..., hiking, sustainability and origins. I enjoy starting my day programming. This is when I find my mind is the freshest and able to handle the arcane details that are a part of writing code. This may include HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, PHP and JavaScript. I also spent a year with TPL (Table Programming Language), working for Statistics Canada. Later I picked up some Visual Basic and later still some C#. Finally, I learned the languages mentioned above and how they are integrated into WordPress. I have also spent some time with Joomla!. Second, when the weather gets warmer, I enjoy getting out of doors and spending time cutting wood and hammering nails. Building, fixing, messing around with machinery. That is a pleasant diversion from all the time spent behind the keyboard. It is also healthier to engage in various physical activities as it helps to prevent repetitive strain injury. Most of this is just a continuation of my time spent growing up on the farm. Third, if I can't get out in a farm environment, then I enjoy going for long walks, anywhere where there are few people and lot's of nature. Perhaps that is what brought me to the Peterborough area, where there is enough city to find micro SD cards, but plenty of country once one gets a fifteen or twenty minute walk outside of it. I also enjoy taking photographs and always have a small camera with me when I go out. Fourth, I am currently working on drawing this background together into a sustainable community design. The essence of this design is a 300 acre, 36 dwelling community that is off grid and obtains all of its water, energy and food from it's own property. The professions, skills and trades of it's occupants are also carefully planned out, not unlike the skills and experiences that are planned for the Mars One mission. In this way, the needs of the one can be met by the skills of the other. The plan is to have a net positive outflow of materials, skills, creativity and knowledge, so that this community can benefit those around it. Fifth and last, I have been interested for quite some time in our origins; how we got here and why. When I started my professional career, I thought I knew what I needed to know and had prepared to go out and tell others this. I wasn't so certain, however, when a student naively asked a question about Darwin's theory of evolution. It made a lot of sense, especially the part about bird's beaks. This prompted me to find out more. That "more" took twenty years and led to a lot of the different experiences mentioned above. Practically, as this relates the the Simbi platform, this means I am making myself available to meet the needs of others through: <h4>Website Consultation</h4> Page Speed, Page Load Times, Optimization, Backup and Security. I also have developed a "Thin PHP" client that delivers HTML more rapidly, reliably and securely than the traditional content management systems such as Joomla!, Drupal or WordPress (http://wp.cbos.ca). <h4>Carpentry, Landscape Work, Organization and Cleanup</h4> This is usually better done with someone else, although this work can be done alone. Working with someone else is just less physically tiring, as there is someone to chat with, troubleshoot and help get that tool you need when you need it. <h4>Sustainable Community Design</h4> My main professional goal right now is be to attempt to rigourously test and then implement the ideas I have been able to pull together so far at earth3300.info. This includes finishing editing and then publishing a 150 page plus book, as well as continuing work on developing a local, balanced supply-demand chain (http://www.earth3300.info) <h4>Discussion of Origins</h4> How we got here, why and how knowledge of that can help our life today. Evidence of ancient technologies shows we were not the first to develop to an advanced state. Indeed, precise rock cuts and 1,100 tonne rocks show the ancient technology was much advanced to ours! Knowing what happened back then can help guide us in how to proceed today. Here is a playlist of nine videos that captures my own journey through this topic: Ancient Archaeology to Modern Knowledge (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzNDsxQRWpBwCEVlDHXFq6wzVSQ2s6A-p) Note: Due to the fact that many sites (including this one) allow almost anyone to post services and request service, discretion may be exercised before accepting a request for work. Thank you for your understanding.show more
