Linux Server DevOps Web Designer Wordpress AWS Expert Udemy Graduate

I'm seeking at least 10 small businesses that are looking for someone to help keep their websites and IT infrastructure up and running full-speed at all times. These small businesses would only need 2 to 4 hours of work per week. I'm also looking for major custom code development work as well. For more than 8 years, I've been a Top Rated Plus Upwork full-time freelancer (less than 1% of all Upwork freelancers achieve a Top Rated Plus status for more than 2 years), I'm a 25-year Linux server / systems administrator, as well as a WordPress and WooCommerce expert. I'm 57 years old, and I've been building code since 1983. I'm always available for questions, whether we work on a contract or not, please ask my advice. I'm here for you. I have extensive experience with server DevOps (think automation), Python, PHP, Javascript and more. I build custom code in a variety of languages to suit my clients. I'm an expert ChatGPT prompt engineer and I can refactor your code for greater success. I do all my current training through Udemy to keep my skills current and here's just some of my recent certifications: Complete Python Bootcamp PHP Master CMS Project HTML5 and CSS3, CentOS 7 Linux Server The Complete Guide to ChatGPT and OpenAI. See my portfolio below to review courses and certificates. I wrote my first line of code in 1983 on a Commodore 64 and I built my first website in 1997. WordPress Plugins: As you can see from my training certificates above, I take high level PHP courses to keep my skills at their peak. Combined with Microsoft Visual Studio Code, and ChatGPT, building custom solutions for your website takes just days, not months. To see my coding skills, I built a free WordPress plugin that crushes other SEO plugins and it's free. You'll find it in the WordPress directory. PHP Solutions: I've been programming with PHP for nearly 15 years now, and I can confidently build any solution you request. As you can see from my WordPress plugin, working with Namespaces, Classes, Methods, Traits and all that PHP has to offer is exactly what I do. I can refactor the code you have, build GitHub repositories and structure your environment to make your business a revenue powerhouse. Python Solutions: Like PHP, Python has many similar principles and is my go to when building custom Linux server solutions. Whether you need a website, web scraping, web/server interfaces or a custom solution tailored to your specific needs, Python is a great choice and is the professional solution. Linux Server Environments: I have built well over 1,000 physical Linux servers using everything from single processor motherboards to quad processor powerhouse servers. I've built even more virtual servers using the KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) environment. The success of your business depends on the Linux server setup. If you pay any attention to Elon Musk, he routinely echoes this same sentiment. If you want to be a billionaire, it all starts with the best server configurations. HTML, CSS and JavaScript Solutions: To build the functionality that makes your web site a success, all elements of HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript must come together for the sake of exceptional user experience. The best websites are on top because it's intuitive and easy for people to buy their products and services. The best solution is the one that makes you money. That's what I'm here for. Website Security: Starts with server security. Whether it's SELinux or AppArmor, the two most popular choices, these security programs can keep all your data safe and are required for some industries. I've been working with these programs for over 20 years. SSL security certificates are the key to locking down your website, email server or app. These certificates are required in any case where you're collecting personal information about your client's, selling a product or service, or maintaining compliance for HIPPA and credit card laws. They all have a short lifespan and must be continually updated and configured. Private In-House Server: Need your own private web/email server? Whether you want an Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure or your own private in-house server setup, I can do all of this remotely. Whether you want a web/email server, or just a linux box in-house, I can make this happen (CentOS/Redhat only). Your new server will have SSL/TLS, DKIM, DMARC, SELinux and tight security. WordPress SEO: Search engine optimization is the practice of building your website to reach the first page of Google. I have built a free WordPress plugin that lays the foundation for Google first page search results. Then, the premium version of this plugin, CodeSEO AI, will actually build all the categories and tags for your entire website. You can download the free version directly from the WordPress directory above. Please tell me what I can do for you and let's do this! Thank you! Tom Heibel
