I’ve been using WordPress since 2005 and actively doing client work since 2012. I have recently expanded into customizing Shopify sites and themes. As an independent developer I excel at the following: * Converting your design into a WordPress or Shopify site * Making sure your site works on all devices, from smartphones to widescreen desktop monitors * Custom fields, post types and page templates * Site installations * Theme customizations * Site migrations * Backups * Sass I will communicate with you frequently. You'll never have to wonder about the status of your project. I'm intimately familiar with cPanel and DigitalOcean droplets and most shared hosting and VPS server configurations. More importantly, I'm very good at troubleshooting and understanding software platforms. If I can't take care of a task, I'll let you know right away.
I'm a front-end web developer with about 5 years experience with WordPress creating themes and plugins from scratch. I recently released an open-source plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/stripe-for-woocommerce/) that integrates Stripe as a payment gateway for WooCommerce and have plenty more in the works. In addition to my WordPress work, I've developed a few jQuery plugins and countless responsive sites. I do a lot of testing before releasing a product to ensure that bugs are difficult to find if not non-existant.
Graduating at 16 with honours and two years ahead of schedule, Sage went on to become an NCCP trained gymnastics coach leading the next generation of gold medal hopefuls. But with technology part of her DNA, it wasn’t long before she left coaching to pursue her true passion. As a Front-end Web Developer and skilled in the arts of the Interwebs, Sage not only designs and builds, but is also able to lead and teach as a Technical Project Manager. Fluent in the areas of: - WordPress - CSS - HTML - Technical Project Management - Theme Modifications - WooCommerce - WordPress E-Commerce - Site Migration - Social Media Integration - Image Editing
