I craft web solutions.

Hello!

Thanks for stopping by.

I’m Daniel (AKA Hoppities), a web developer based in Rockford, Illinois, who works primarily with small businesses to improve their sites or to create their first one.

If you have questions or want to chat, please get in touch.

My technical tools.

Laravel

Laravel is a flexible, quick, object-oriented framework that makes development a blast.

AngularJS

This one is new for me, and I love the “wow” moments while programming with Angular.

Wordpress

Wordpress is great for businesses that want an easy-to-use platform. It’s my go-to for small businesses.

Other Stuff

Sequel Pro, Codekit, and Sublime Text all make my life easier, and I don’t know what I would do without these tools.

I wish my website were _____________.

No need to wish. Let's make it happen.

mobile, responsive web design

Mobile first makes me happy.

Is your website making your mobile users happy? It can.

My recent projects.

01 ⋅ Grace Reformed Baptist Church

GRBC Rockford needed an update. Their old site was slow and not mobile friendly. I decreased load time and created a responsive design that works on all devices. A new sermons widget was also created by integrating with the Sermon Audio API. It's a cleaner, simpler design that offers easy access to the information visitors need.

02 ⋅ Angular Calculator

I recently gave a talk at Rockford Web Devs titled "Up and Running with AngularJS." For that, I decided to build a Calculator with AngularJS, and I also used Google's Material UI, which I think looks great.

03 ⋅ Tri-3 Timing

Tri-3 Timing wanted to move away from copying and pasting lines of HTML to a simple content management system. They also wanted the ability to upload and process race results as well as filtering and searching of results. I was able to build a clean, simple system that managed all races and moved Tri-3 Timing away from having to understand how to code.

04 ⋅ Helpr

Helpr is an issue-tracking system, built at my day job. It's an AngularJS and LaravelPHP web app that offers role management for users, issue status tracking, a comment system, and a custom activity feed and dashboard for users.
