EXPERTISE
4 JavaScript
Javascript expert help JavaScript - 5 years experience
I have worked with several Javascript libraries and frameworks to include but not limited to jQuery, Node.js, AngularJS, Underscore.js, MomentJS, each serving a different purpose, with different quirks.
Html css expert help HTML/CSS - 5 years experience
I have used CSS for everything from theming to animations to layout. Responsive CSS is my main focus these days.
Php expert help PHP - 3 years experience
I have most recently used PHP to make API calls
Python expert help Python - 2 years experience
My first love is scripting and Python just makes it simple. If you need something more complex, using a framework like Django will be very helpful.
Java expert help Java - 6 years experience
I have used Java for many business and web applications over the years. Primarily as a business logic tool and can be very powerful, especially if you use its error logging features. It can, however, be cumbersome to perform debugging via the default stack tracing. In my experience, it is very important to be familiar with the Java libraries you are using.
Sql expert help SQL - 4 years experience
SQL queries, including multiple joins and formatting. It is especially useful to have an autocomplete feature in your SQL tool when creating your SQL queries.
Mysql expert help MySQL - 5 years experience
More widely used in smaller or web-based applications, MySQL is a free tool that performs well under most conditions. It is especially useful to have an autocomplete feature in your SQL tool when creating your SQL queries.
Git expert help Git - 4 years experience
This type of version control has quickly become the industry standard, especially for public open source projects. It is important to understand how to perform basic operations and tools in order to avoid rejections from your repository maintainer.
Wordpress WordPress - 5 years experience
Ahh... Wordpress, the most popular CMS in the industry. With a large plugin marketplace, this has quickly become the most requested small business platform. Along with this, has been the challenge of keeping up with all the available features. It is best to find an existing plugin that provides most if not all of the functionality you are looking for. Otherwise, you may spend an exorbitant amount of time working around the quirks of Wordpress' framework.
Drupal expert help Drupal - 6 years experience
I have a love/hate relationship with Drupal. With its open source roots and module-centric mission/vision, I keep on coming back for more. The biggest challenge is migration to a new version. While each version is dramatically improved, it is also dramatically different. Depending on your project, this may affect one area, such as theming more than others, like module compatibility. The biggest thing to remember in this space is that it is often better to wait for the newest version to mature before jumping on the bandwagon. Nevertheless, it is a very powerful and extensible system.
No icon Linux - 12 years experience
I have been administering Ubuntu and Red Hat derivatives since 2004 and have been the resident goto gal for Linux since 2001, when a friend brought home a Red Hat Linux CD. A recent project involved decommissioning a $1.2M data center with 50+ linux servers where I designed bash scripting to manage Dell and HP RAIDs and perform DoD wipes on 300+ HDDs and SSDs. The scripting would also log progress and time to completion for efficiency.

Shannon is really patient and helpful. She has helped me in debugging and solving problems I have patiently, even though this meant that we exceeded our mentorship time agreement.
