Ralph Harris III

 

My name is Ralph Harris III and I am a professional PHP Web Developer / Programmer in the Wilmington, NC area.  I am 28 years old and I graduated from UNC Wilmington with French and Computer Science degrees in 2008.  Though I am a total computer nerd, and am passionate about that, I also love languages and music.

PHP Application Developer

Having worked in the web development world for years, I have had experience working with all sorts of people, developing all sorts of applications for multiple industries and businesses.  I mostly work with PHP building applications to satisfy multiple client needs, desires and specifications, but I also regularly get the chance to build custom Joomla and WordPress websites along with the PSD cutups into HTML / CSS.   I also have a lot of experience working with jQuery / Ajax, Web Services and third-party API implementations, e-commerce platforms such as Virtuemart, Magento, and Miva Merchant, and PHP frameworks such as Yii and Codeigniter.  I am currently beginning to build applications with Javascript Frameworks such as Angular and Ember and expanding my horizons into hybrid mobile app development with them.  I love learning about and keeping up with this rapidly expanding field.

Amateur Linguist

As an amateur linguist I spend a lot of time listening to, and studying other languages.  My French degree has opened me up to the European society and culture and I am currently trying to become proficient to some point in other languages such as Italian, Dutch, and Norwegian.  I enjoy learning about new cultures and meeting the people that go along with them as it helps me to learn more about myself and to be a better citizen in this fast growing globally connected society.

Musician

Musically, I love listening to all types of music, and growing up in church,  I was exposed to, and given the opportunity to learn music and feed off the passion of the talented musicians around me.  I am currently good at some level on the piano, drums, saxophone, and recorder, and am working to improve my skill each day.
