I love helping people. This could be through just talking, sharing ideas, but also actually providing the solution.
Expect me to dig in, ask questions, and quite possibly come up with a spin to the original problem. I learned to use my coding, analysis and interpersonal skills to get to the ‘question behind the question’.
I believe this will get you the desired project output, through maximizing the effect on your day-to-day business and processes.
Often by making things simpler, it can also improve the overall understanding and help lower long term costs of ownership.
These approaches helped me to successfully build many different websites for clients from 1997 onwards. Being a business owner myself for 12 years (boutique website agency, 10-15 people), got me a lot of knowledge on bookkeeping, contracts, fiscal/tax and employment matters too.
If you think I can be the person to help you, hire me on Codeable.
After using bespoke CMS tools for a decade I discovered WordPress in 2009. That solution quickly became my go-to tool for building websites. In the years that followed, I was able to contribute back to the core software with some small refinements. https://profiles.wordpress.org/ruudjoyo/
Pre Web development
Before I pivoted my professional career towards web development, I was a Research Analyst in the field of Molecular Biology. Being a computer fanatic from the Commodore 64 / Amiga era onwards, this eventually drove me towards my current career path, and I never looked back.
Together with my wife and our two girls (9 and 11), we live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Such a pleasure to work with Ruud. He went beyond our expectations and communicated with us all along the way. I would recommend him highly for his knowledge and promptness of getting the tasks done and his patience in working with us and our novice understanding of what it was we really needed. Thank you Ruud.
Ruud is great to work with; he was able to troubleshoot our issue and offered a clear explanation of what the issue was and how it would be resolved. We would definitely work with him again!
Highly recommended. Have worked on multiple projects with Ruud, and so far, he has exceeded the expectations every time. Will surely come back to him when we have a new WP-related project.
I chose these ratings because Ruud was exceptional throughout the project. He went above and beyond. When needed he explained things in clear and easy to understand language (which is even more incredible considering as I assume English isn't even his first language!).
Ruud has delivered timely results of high quality, and his communication and insights have helped the project immensely. We hope to continue working with him in the future. Highly recommended.
Very responsive and nice when you want to do a project quick with a grea t result. If plan A doesn't work how he wants he finds another solution for the problem.
clearly has the expertise I need and understood all my issues.
Ruud was professional and helpful.
Always responded very quickly. Very clear communication and gave extra tips. Really knows a lot about what he's doing. Would recommend!
Ruud is an extremely talented and conscientious developer. Thank you!
Ruud helped me see more clearly on the project. I am very happy to have been able to resolve these problems and to have found an available and attentive worker.
