Zak Kinion

Web Developer PHP jQuery Mysql and Python programmer


Reno, United States


I have 14 years experience in Web Development, and have built data driven sites for my own business needs as well as completed work for others. My origins are self taught, arising from my own needs during my first business while I was still in college. I am very good at PHP/MySQL or MS-SQL and have worked in both large and small companies ranging from simple quick fixes to complex applications. . I have built not only ajax client pages in javascript/jquery, but also backend, data driven servers in PHP. I am also good with wordpress and wordpress plugins and have extensive experience with them in the ... morepast. I know jquery and sass/compass as well. My main focus now is on mobile and I can make responsive websites (ones that look good on both phone and desktop devices) with compass design patterns. I believe in a strong work ethic and will get done what I say I'm going to get done. less

    Zak is a very skilled developer. He offered advice on how to implement a solution to our problem and developed a plugin with very little guidance as to what we required, yet nailing what we needed. I would hire him again, no doubt.
