Languages used to build LAMP stack sites. I’ve used these to build custom WordPress themes and plugins, as well as standalone for some projects that use databases.
The most popular content management system. Most of my freelance and UCF sites use WordPress, with Divi or a custom theme made with PHP.
Version Control System used when working in groups, as personal backup, and when working with open-source software. Over ten years of experience, eight professionally.

Search Engine Optimization, web tracking and reporting platform. I’ve installed Analytics on all my freelance sites to help business owners gauge activity, page views, and more important data.

Industry standard tool for image manipulation and, in my case, usually optimization for page speed and SEO purposes. Over ten years of experience.
