I have worked with web and database development for over 20 years for a variety of difference companies. These companies ranged ranged from smaller mom and pop type shops to international companies with offices all over the world and for several years I worked with the federal government in the law division of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services based out of Lakewood, CO.
As a web manager I not only handle the backend development but I handle the project management to make sure that projects come in on time and on or under budget.
Every project is different and has their own unique requirements.
