I am a PHP developer, system administrator, and overall jack-of-all-trades engineer. I have over 10 years experience combined in numerous languages, platforms, and technologies.
I have special experience in automation, game development, web hosting/vps hosting/cloud, and web scraping. I have been in the hosting sector for over 5 years and know every major system there is outside of windows.
Specific to WordPress I have special experience with the Pods plugin, W3TC (caching), WP-Rocket (caching and minify), and I prefer using roots.io for building themes from scratch as it uses proper tools like grunt, frameworks like bootstrap, and languages like SASS. I have personally been a contributor and bounty hunter for pods for over 6 months and use it for every site I can.
However even if I do not have extensive or any prior experience to your plugin or theme, I am a very quick learner and will have no issues resolving or building anything you require.
The one thing I unfortunately can not take on is any design work. If you give a mock-up or a visual reference, I can create it in most cases. I can also fix UI’s if there is an issue and do minor changes, and sometimes even major. But the heart of my skill set lies in engineering as a backend engineer despite being a full stack engineer.
What I do is my passion and I take pride in doing it properly. I have been a developer and learning since I was 10 and I have never stopped. I love learning and most importantly I love and thrive on a challenge to learn more.

Patient when advising the best way forward, and then delivered the work as swiftly as promised. Would (and will) hire Derrick again
Derrick did a great job at asking the right questions, providing timely responses and accurate guidance to solve our troubleshooting issue. Would use again and would recommend to others, thanks!
Derrick understood my issues / question and gave me the information and resources I was looking for to help me make some infrastructure and third party services decisions.
Super fast correspondence, thorough with answers, great with suggestions. My blog is huge and was in desperate need of optimization. Derrick did a great job, very satisfied and will seek him out in the future.
First time using Codeable, and first time I've worked with a developer where everything worked without a hitch. Absolutely nothing to fix.
Derrick knows his stuff and is able to put that knowledge into action in a quick, practical, and seamless way
This guy is fantastic. A real pro. Keep him cause he's a real asset to codeable.
Derrick is wonderful. Highly recommend.
