Hello!

My name is Raymond Heredia. I am a Front-End Web Developer.

Currently, I am working as an Application Development Specialist for Accenture, Inc., writing applications in React. I have to say, it has been the BEST company I have ever worked for. I have travelled all over the World and made a lot of great connections. I can't say enough good things about them.

But I'll stop for now.

If there are things you want to know about me personally, check out my blog. I promise you, it's very boring.

Cheers!
Raymond



Competencies

HTML5

I take pride in writing meaningful, semantic HTML that makes sense. I keep unecessary bloat to a minimum so that code stays as slim as possible. This may seem trivial but when you are dealing with high-traffic sites, data adds up quickly to eat up your bandwidth. It's a good way to reduce data bottle-necks.

CSS3

Presentation really is everything, and the true essence of front-end web development. I am very proficient (and efficient) in writing CSS from scratch. I can whip up just about anything your heart and appetite could possibly desire.

I fully embrace new methods of maintaining CSS code through tools like SCSS, SASS and LESS. I am also very well-versed in Responsive Web Design using CSS Media Queries in order to use a single codebase for all browsers for desktops, tablets and mobile devices.

JavaScript / jQuery / ReactJS

This is like breathing life into a design and assigning some behavior. Sometimes, you have to make pages actually do things, like validate a form, alter an element (or just dazzle your friends). I am very knowledgable in jQuery/JavaScript and write clean, concise code that is virtually error free and integratable into existing JavaScript libraries.

PHP / MySQL

Aside from front-end development, I am also familiar with server-side languages like PHP and open source database tools like MySQL. I mainly use these for content management.

Adobe Creative Suite

Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash, Encore, etc. I am highly skilled in the entire Adobe Suite. From image optomization to various kinds of media output, these tools are indespensible.

Final Cut Studio, DVD Studio, AVID

Aside from Web Technology, I am also proficient in video editing/manipulation software. These skills work hand-in-hand as web media continue to evolve. I have to evolve with it.

WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Community Server, vBulletin, ZenCart, Open Atrium, Magento, ATG E-Commerce

These are Content Management Systems (CMS) I am experienced with. Aside from being convenient interfaces for the user, the underlying code and ability to manipulate that code is the real meat and potatoes and where I do my best work.
