Web Development

15


15 simbi per hour - Virtual OK

Taking a bold step where many fear to tread. Offering a consistent, high quality service for one affordable hourly rate. Use this 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

N.B. Normally a web developer can expect to earn in the $30 to $40 per hour range. However, this is unaffordable to many people. At 15 simbi per hour (or $15 per hour outside of simbi), more people can afford a web developer. It is that simple. This should also help keep a decent web developer fully employed. So it is a win-win situation. (Please see this discussion for more details on why the 15 simbi/dollar per hour was chosen: http://wp.cbos.ca/why-15-per-hour/)

However, to make this work, it is very helpful if you know what you want. If all you want is "a website", not a problem. But the cash (or simbi) registers start tinkling as soon as you engage me. That is part of the secret to making it work on both ends. That means the discovery process "What do I want?" "How do we do this?" is paid. This will lead to better results as the web developer (such as myself) can afford to take the time to answer the questions.

Unfortunately, if you are looking for graphic design, you will have to look elsewhere. That is a specialized skill which is completely different from programming. It is unreasonable to expect one person to do it all, and the results will be much better if people specialize. If you are wanting a custom theme designed, then please may I suggest one of the many graphic designers available (on Simbi here or elsewhere). Once you have your design in hand, with Desktop, Tablet and Mobile Views, then that can be transferred into the HTML and CSS files that your browser uses to display the page . This will help the entire process work that much better.

If you are looking for a theme framework, may I recommend Genesis. I also have developed my very own Plugin Theme, which uses the WordPress plugin functionality to enable the user to swap out theme componetns as easily as swapping out spark plugs on your car (more easily, actually). Don't like the color? Swap. Fonts? Swap. Background Image? Swap. This approach resulted from my page speed work, where I noticed that page load time didn't really depend on the number of plugins, it depended on the amount of code in the plugins. You would be surprised at what is in some of the more common ones. Awful! The ones I provide are contain minimal code and designed with optimization in mind.

To help this process get started, I have developed a checklist with the default options already checked off. Please ignore the price at the bottom. This will be adjusted with the new pricing soon. Here is the link:

I've really enjoyed working with Clarence. He is very professional, and clearly explains what he wants. Yet he is laid back and easy to work with at t...he same time. I was happy to exchange work on an animated logo for work on my website. show more

William received unit of Questions about Origins from Clarence
Apr 29, 2017
Had an excellent exhange of information with Clarence, on a higher plane of Universal knowledge that could be considered 4th Density awareness. His ...answers and grasp of ancient "Origins" and background information I received was very detailed and well organized. We both had knowledge of the same timely and current noteable whistleblowers and "movers & shakers" of both the UFO/ET subject as well as pre-recorded history that can only be found by very dedicated investigation and research. I was very impressed with the pleasant and cordial manner in which our exchange of information took place. I recommend you give Clarence a look on any of the deals he is currently offering. 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 all of 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.tech. 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)show more
