Conneaut Lake, United States


Having been honored as being in the Top 5% of Web Developers on Upword ( the new oDesk ) attests to my dedication to you. Without my past clients being happy I wouldn't have received this designation. My goals are not reward based. Rewards and medals come from doing that which is right. In recent events: Not "all" feedback received denotes the entire situation. Please sort by highest to lowest when reviewing feedback. Why? Because you'll see there is no way ONE person, and one person only, felt the need to flame me. I should have checked her credentials further. You'll ... moresee. In the meantime, feel free to explore the University I was schooled, both technically and ethically: http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/gannon-university-3266 Over 15 years of Experience in InfoTech! Doing it right the first time! Securely! I have over a decade of experience using PHP 4 & 5 and MS SQL Server 2005-2012, MySQL 4 & 5, XHTML, CSS2-3, JavaScript, Jquery, JFormer, AJAX and APIs for Facebook, Twitter and payment processing. I have installed, fixed, updated or extended CMSs (including WordPress and Joomla) and eComm packages like osCommerce and OpenCart. I particularly like to work with CodeIgniter MVC. Allow me to provide you an end-to-end solution, with code that works or fix what the others couldn't. I am also a formally trained and an experienced system analyst to boot. Be it a start from scratch project, site fixes and extensions in any code style, or you require additional programming capacity, feel free to contact me and let's see what we can do! Whether your goal is for in-house needs to automate time consuming and costly paper processes or for a WWW presence, experience matters in developing the database driven innovations that make it happen. Add over a quarter century of management experience in manufacturing and retail sectors, a keen eye for details, and a personal quirk for playing fair and you have yourself a winning solution. Experience. It really does matter. When I code, I code properly! Correctly! I can fix anything given to me in PHP, though I'd rather have the luxury of starting a project. I am always happy to get your dreams working! Thank you! Darren B. less

Work History and Feedback

  • Nov 2014 - Jan 2015

    PHP Application Developer
    Working with Darren was extremely easy. He made himself available and dove right into a very messy and complicated situation and methodically made sense of it. He was able to explain to the non tech teams and other partners what exactly was going on and then make clear recommendations on a path to move forward. Excellent working with him!
    Freelancer's Response
    Steven was a pleasure to work with. Very dedicated to the task; be it a virtual tour of their operations to quickly responding to inquiries, or holding a phone to their local computers so I can literally see what I needed to see then entering in the commands as instructed. I always got all the access needed to accomplish the tasks and his availability is outstanding, even after hours. Thanks, Steven!
