A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I’m a talented web developer with over 7 years of experience in full-stack web development. My experience is focused on the development of front-end and back-end websites using the LAMP stack, relational databases, WordPress, and mobile development technologies. My specialty is the server setup and configuration process to the development, optimization, and deployment of websites. My development is focused on integrating designs and content into optimized and mobile-friendly websites.
Since 2009, I've worked on many PHP projects which included an event calendar system, custom content management systems, e-commerce shopping carts, customer information systems, order management systems, custom database management systems, and custom WordPress sites. I've also built over 10 business WordPress sites and have several more in development. I know how to manage dedicated and managed servers and setup and develop WordPress sites on-the-fly.
I have skills to make websites show on the first page of Google. For example, my website SpaceCoastSites.com currently has 2,645 relevant keywords that rank #1 on Google. I’m also skilled in using social media platforms to advertise and bring interest to businesses.
Additionally, I can convert web designs from Photoshop into perfect fully-coded front-end pages. I'm also experienced in software documentation and can easily adapt to new software development environments and languages when needed.
I have a BS degree in information technology and will graduate this year with a master’s in informatics with a concentration in web development.
I believe hard work pays off in the long run and responsibility is a top trait one must have.

What They Say
Although I managed Daniel Harris' volunteer work flow while at BCA, he was far advanced with his knowledge and understanding of website work. He never stopped offering ways to improve our site and fix issues, such as instituting internal staff chat via the website. He added much value during his volunteer hours. My trust in Daniel's abilities grew during the time he worked at BCA. He would pore over issues, problem solve, bringing us good solutions. I have the utmost respect and admiration for Daniel, his work, and his integrity.
- BREVARD CULTURAL ALLIANCE
Daniel is a quiet and humble person. He is very focused on school and work. During 14 months that Daniel worked for me, I was able to watch him develop both as a web developer and as a person. Daniel proved to be very patient in dealing with me and my stress levels. He stayed on task, and could be counted on to develop an idea into reality, while including a little extra “splash” in the design. Daniel is a determined young man, who is more tortoise than hare. But when the crunch is on, he does know how to sprint. And he will do it without letting the stress get to him.
