Languages

Competent and Experienced in numerous Web Languages including:

  • PHP -- is the language that provides functionality via server-side scripting. It is the work-horse of the net providing tremendous opportunity in devloping any software that can be accurately described. In other words, if you can describe it, I can write the code for it.

  • MySQL -- is the language that creates and manages databases for data storage and date manipulation. This language is key in providing dynamic presentations in web sites and in providing users/adminstrators/clients with access to their data.
