Hello, my name is Fran and I specialize in the development and maintenance of web based solutions in PHP/MySQL/JavaScript, Joomla!, and Wordpress.
Essentially I specialize in three types of services:

1) I develop, maintain, and modify new and redesigned websites and applications. Each application that I develop is flexible, extensible, robust, and highly scalable.

2) I develop automated solutions for your every-day business functions. I take the spreadsheets, forms, and documents that you currently maintain, and convert them to a unified Web Site. Instead of updating your data in 2 or more different documents, you make the changes in one place and your changes are inserted into your other documents. My applications allow you to perform your tasks easier and quicker.

3) I develop Facebook Business Pages. (Facebook e-Commerce Pages, e-commerce integration for Landing/Squeeze pages, Registration forms, Contact forms, Signup Forms, Surveys, Questionnaires
