My name is Ben Kaminski. I am a professional, full-stack web developer and provide consulting and design services to clients around the world. I have experience working on projects of all sizes whether it be part of a team or on my own. I truly enjoy this field and the challenges it brings, that is part of the reason why I maintain this blog.
What started out as a hobby back in the late 90’s quickly became a passion. Once I learned the basics of HTML (using Adobe Page Mill), I had my first website up within days. The notion of owning a piece (albeit small) of the enormously vast internet was captivating. I had to learn as much as possible as quickly as possible.
Over the years I learned numerous skills from various mentors and friends. Those of which, shared their knowledge with me — free of charge — and for that I am extremely thankful. During my college years a computer science course was difficult to find and I had other agendas (*cough* rock stardom *cough*). Therefore much of my knowledge has come from those few who got me started in the right direction.
I maintain this blog to inform and share my knowledge to help others find their way in website development. I attempt to research as best I can — the topics I share — to make sure there aren’t already tons of duplicate articles out there. That being said, my topics are very specific. Mostly dealing in WordPress development but sometimes I run into other issues I find interesting.
I am available for hire — contract to full time. Please contact me for more details.
Funny, someone once told me that I should “take PHP off my resume”. This person is embedded in .NET land and hasn’t been outside for years. I digress. #opensource
I enjoy the problem solving process. I hope those of you that are searching for answers find them here and I thank those that take the time to contact me or leave a comment. Thanks as always for visiting.
