Inaugural Blog Post

Hey!

I need a post to get going here, so here it is!

I am a freelance web developer currently residing in Kansas City, MO.  My main strength is in development (programming, server management, etc) but I’m also an aspiring designer, video editor, occasional furniture builder and closet musician.

Recently I’ve been doing a lot of work with WordPress and Drupal installs and I’ve been playing around with Laravel, functional programming, and interactive web programming.  I’ve been using both CMS systems for years for projects but recently decided to start tearing them apart and putting them back together in order to get a more intimate knowledge of all their little inner workings.  They aren’t always the best tools for every job, sometimes they can be a little bloated, but they do make rapid deployment simple.

I also recently took a great functional programming class on Coursera and I regularly participate in classes there.  If you couldn’t tell by now I love learning new things-I have a voracious appetite for knowledge.

The last year and a half or so I’ve also been learning and experimenting with search engine optimization and content marketing strategies-helping businesses grow their online presence.   I like to write and I also find web marketing fascinating.  Most recently I helped develop a content development strategy for Ally Construction and managed to get their website ranked on the first page of Google for many local search terms.

I plan to share what I’ve learned, what I’m learning, and anything else I find around the web worth sharing. So stay tuned.

Looking for some web development help?  I’d love to help out-no commitments required. Shoot me an email at cory@www.addlime.com.
