PHP 7: Time to Upgrade

Is your site one of the 60+% of all websites operating PHP version 5.x? If so, you should know that December 31, 2018 is the date that the-powers-that-be will no longer provide security updates for PHP 5, leaving your code (and therefore customers) vulnerable to hacking and other attacks. If your host updates your web server to PHP 7, and you haven't updated the code to be PHP 7 compliant, much (or all) of your site could break too. I can help determine if your site is running the older version and I can upgrade it to PHP 7. Depending on the nature of your site, this could be a time consuming project so don't wait until the last minute, call right now. If you neglect your code, you will likely regret it at some point in 2019.

What Clients Think of Me

About Me and My Projects

I'm an old school nerd and proud of it. I got my start with PCs on a TRS-80 when I was very young and the first app I ever made was a random number generator created on my Commodore VIC-20 in the 4th grade in about 1983. I sold 'lotto' guesses to my classmates until I learned the hard way that type of thing was frowned upon by the administration. Nowadays, I like making useful, fun, interesting - and legal - components for websites.

My most recent project was an HTML5 Canvas community art project that was one of the most unique projects I've ever encountered. It tested my technical skills as a developer and was very interesting to create. I also redesigned a manufacturing company website and database. This exercise increased their database efficiency which improved overall web site speed and reduced Admin efforts by 90%. Traffic has doubled and visitors are spending 300% more time on the site. I just finished redesigning a website and added new database administration features for an musical product distributor. Up next is a redesign and admin upgrade for a Masonic Lodge and consolidation of two chemical company websites and their database administrators. On-going is a slick new social media platform and a family tree app that are easier and faster than similar sites.

My time is split pretty evenly between my own clients and projects that other web design agencies sub-contract to me. Most of my work comes from these areas: Boston, Massachusetts, Portsmouth to Manchester, New Hampshire, and Portland, Maine but I have regular clients as far away as Oakland, California and for some reason, I have had a lot of customers from Cambridge and Newburyport, MA. I've worked in most industries including small business, e-commerce, B2B, manufacturing, defense, retail, restaurants, hotels, insurance, sales, high tech, banks, real estate, tourism, corporate, education, construction, municipal, finance, health, fashion, chemical, human resources & more.

In my spare time (What's that?!?) I play and record music, I fix broken guitars, I read really old newspapers, I maintain a vegetable garden, I've invented a couple useless gadgets, and I watch the Red Sox. I have a Chihuahua and two cats who don't like me doing anything that doesn't involve one of them sleeping in my lap. Don't laugh, it's all much more fun than it sounds!
