This was the first programing language I learned when I needed to build a basic form processor. Since then I've used PHP to build a number of APIs, CRMs from scratch, and it's the backbone RateGator.com. My Framework of choice is Laravel.
I used to suck a JS, but I've come a long way! After digging in and learning it the right way and finding a framework that fit my style I've come to love JS and all the great things that can be accomplished with it. VueJS ftw
I know my way around the command line and whether it’s a virtual machine or a dedicated box I know how to get it up and configured as a webserver with all the bells and whistles, MySQL, nginx, apache, node, SSL, DNS, ect.
I started using git just a couple years ago and it's made my life a whole lot easier!
Most of my experience here is with MySQL and SQL. I understand other platforms like MongoDB but SQL is my weapon of choice. I've worked with huge data sets, we're talking data sets in the billions, and I've setup more DBs than I can remember.
Not sure this is a needed skill now a days with platforms like Mailchimp but seven boxes looked odd. That said, I do have a fair amount of experience here. I worked for an email marketing firm, running their email marketing infrastructure for quite a few years...
Sales & Marketing
Well this isn't something you see every day, a 'tech guy' who gets along with 'sales guys'. How'd that happen? Well I started my career in sales and in that time built some great relationships, managed a number of marketing campaigns, and was pretty damn good at it too.
