Hi there, I’m Danny Gould,

My past work:

  • Git
  • Responsive Design

This is a responsive web application with a focus on visual organization and swift editing of personal and professional tasks. Tasks are organized by user-filtered tags and separated into soveirgn folders that can be collaborated on. I focus on modern web development best practices in both front and back end design. As the sole developer for this project I look to grow and learn while building a maintainable, clear code.

Challenges:
This is the most involved project I have worked on to date. The project consists of a Node.js app which communicates between concurrent clients and a MongoDB database. The project features real-time collaboration facilitated by WebSockets. I am responsible for the development, implementation of design, system administration, analytics, and marketing. Performance is one of the greatest focuses in this project to ensure high levels of adoption accross devices.

Tony Geiger

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • PHP
  • Responsive
  • WordPress

This is a simple, budget-oriented, rapidly constructed portfolio website for a unique visual artist from New York. It is a good example of a client site which the owner can maintain on their own while utilizing my design and development skills to adjust an off-the-shelf WordPress theme to their own individual needs.

Challenges:
Tony had all of his content and ideas ready before we began development which made the process straightforward. All alterations needed to stay mobile-responsive and look good on a desktop computer as the original theme did. Large photos needed to be compressed to improve performance of the site. Tony's preparation of content and clear idea of budget from the outset fostered a successful outcome.

Brookfield Fire Department

This is a responsive WordPress website built to fit the developing needs of my local fire department. The chief can now post images and stories as well as other event updates on his own without the need for a trained webmaster. The custom theme fits the department's aesthetic. The site enables integration of published posts with the departments popular Facebook page. It was built exclusively on volunteer hours as my Eagle Scout Service project.

Challenges:
Because of the nature of the service project, I had to incorporate copy, visual, and software comonents created by youth and adult volunteers. This involved educating volunteers about web practices and technologies as well as communicating with the town and department to meet their needs.

Trova Design Consultants

  • JavaScript
  • PHP
  • WordPress

This is a responsive WordPress website built quickly and inexpensively for a small business in the Berkshires. I was responsible for design, graphics, and development of the site. The site was built to serve the needs of a CAD shop and allow them to update their own content.

Challenges:
I was not very familiar with CSS during this project so I struggeled to lay out things centered and create a mobile responsive design. I gained a lot of familiarity with CSS3 through this project and also learned how to alter basic PHP to add functionality like the contact form.
