I’ve been doing custom WordPress development and consultation for a number of years. At first, it was under my name only. After a while, I decided to organize a company, in order to keep my business concerns separate. I chose the name “Hard G” as a subtle primer on how to pronounce my last name.
The company name has existed, for the most part, on invoices and contracts. I thought it was about time to give Hard G a coming-out party. So I commissioned a few friends – designer Sonja Leix and wordsmith Siobhan McKeown – to help me set up a site that would showcase my work for existing and potential clients. Ain’t she purty?
The central tenet behind Hard G is that it’s possible for organizations – especially those in the public trust, such as universities – to build great websites while benefiting free software projects at the same time. That’s why, throughout the site, I’ve emphasized my own commitment to the values and goals of free software. My About page talks a bit about my interwoven backgrounds in academia and software development; Contributions outlines some of the ways I’ve worked to benefit WordPress, BuddyPress, and related projects; and Projects contains a number of case studies that demonstrate how I’ve brought my strengths to bear in my client work.
I’ve got a small amount of availability in the upcoming months, particularly for small consulting or plugin development jobs. If you’re interested in working with Hard G, check out Services, and get in touch at Contact.
