Alex Fraundorf

Thanks for visiting my website. Most of this site is about my profession as a freelance web developer, but I don't think we can truly compartmentalize all the different areas of our life, so some of my personal life is described here, and on my blog, as well.

Web Development & Programming

Okay, down to business. I am a full stack freelance web developer and owner of Snap Programming and Development LLC.
While I am competent in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and SQL, what I really like to do is write PHP.
If you need help with the heavy lifting on your server, especially with third party API integration, database integration/conversion, complicated programming tasks or maintaining a legacy application, then you should hire me!
I am currently booking projects for January, February 2020 and beyond.
Usually I am able to provide project bids and do small work (1 hour or less) the same week.

Specialties Include:

  • Custom Object Orientated PHP Functionality
  • API Integration
  • Relational Database Design and Migration
  • Use of Modern Development Tools such as Git, PHPUnit and Composer
  • Comfortable with Linux Command Line and Basic Server Administration Tasks
  • Shell Scripting in Bash/PHP and Automating Tasks with Cron Jobs
  • Competent with Multiple Frameworks and CMS Platforms
    • Extensive experience maintaining, debugging and modernizing custom/legacy platforms
    • Laravel
    • CodeIgniter 2 and 3
    • Wordpress Custom Plugin Development
  • PHP
  • SQL
  • JavaScript / jQuery
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Linux & Windows
