Who Am I?


A skilled full-stack programmer and designer who is sick of bloated, insecure WordPress websites being the norm.

Jacob Paris

I've been coding since I was a child with games like Challenge Accepted, Magic Fireball, and more.

Everyone said grow up and get a real job so I learned to weld while fabricating websites on the side.
Now I can code full-time, over-time, crunch-time — whatever it takes to get the job done.

CHEAP


At my last job, I arrived at the office every day at 9 AM, went to my desk, pulled out my MacBook Pro, and got to work.

I didn't need to plug in to some huge development server. Truth be told, most of the time I didn't even need internet access. Modern servers can be simulated on a basic laptop.

The brick and mortar offices, the secretary, the cleaning staff, the foosball table, the meetings, and the extra employees that were hired to cover the loss of productivity due to the meetings are all unnecessary expenses whose costs are passed down to you.

HERE'S HOW MUCH A WEBSITE COSTS

Creating content and finding imagery is the most time consuming part of the job.

The less custom content you need done, the cheaper your site will be.

Single Page

Simple site like this that explains the service, how much it costs, and how to get it.

WILL COST

A day or two of work

Multiple pages

Complex, varying content full of products, services, or news with dedicated pages for each.

Will cost

Around a week of work

dynamic pages

Built-in content creation like blogging, news posting, or photo sharing.

Will cost

More than a week

FAST


Every second your page spends loading, your customers are leaving in droves. A second or two might not seem like much, but a few extra seconds can mean up to 40% less traffic

Wordpress is slow

Wordpress is a blogging platform with thousands of third-party addons that let you run other types of sites.

The majority of themes and plugins for Wordpress are written with slow, substandard code and full of intentional and unintentional security holes.

Since so many sites (28% of the web) run on it, it's a huge target for hackers who sell your customers' contact information to spammers and modify plugins to steal credit card data.

ADDONS ARE SLOW


Adding toolbars and extensions to your browser will slow your browsing experience to a crawl.

You get the same problem when a website is built out of third party addons and extensions.

HOW SITES WORK

WORDPRESS

When you go to a Wordpress site, the page gets generated in a (long) series of interaction between a database, backend code, server, browser, and layers of caching.

It can't be pre-compiled because it depends on so many things.

PRECOMPILED

When you go to one of my sites, the page is already compiled and is delivered immediately from the CDN server closest to you.

That's a worldwide network of servers designed specifically to serve files as fast as possible.

If you're interested in the technicals, you can read more about precompiled sites here.

MODERN


Tired of sites that look like they were built in the 90s?

RESPONSIVE DESIGN

Over 60% of web traffic comes from mobile devices, and your site needs to be ready for them.

I build sites with a mobile-first approach so the content you need to promote is highlighted at every screen size.
