I joined the Luxurious Magazine team on an ad hoc basis on 8 October 2019, making it the newest of my preferential clients.
Some of the project tasks we’ve completed include:
- Security and Site Speed Audit and Optimization
- Technical SEO Audit and Optimization
- WordPress Child Theme Development
- VPS Software Upgrades
Some of the technical aspects I’ve worked with on the projects include:
- Inmotion Hosting VPS
- MySQL Upgrade
- OPcache Installation
- PHP Upgrade
- Redis Installation
- WP Rocket
Through our efforts, we reduced the home page FCP from 6.1 seconds to 0.9 seconds (desktop, PageSpeed Insights).
Our collaboration continues on an ad hoc basis.
Some public feedback (on my Upwork profile) received over the course of the projects include:
Working with David has been a revelation. Not only did he achieve all that was required, but he also exceeded it by suggesting things I hadn’t considered. I have engaged programmers via Elance/Upwork on previous occasions and was left feeling short-changed. Many promises were made, and the final results were not as expected. Also, the ability to communicate one’s needs and have them clearly understood is paramount. David has removed all the disappointment from the past. I cannot recommend him enough to other people wanting coding work done. If you get the opportunity to work with him, I’d advise you to take it. He was so professional, positive and competent, I will be giving him a bonus! – 25 October 2019
We engaged David to speed up our website and optimise our VPS performance. His work was superb and I will be utilising his skills again in the future. – 25 October 2019 (VPS-specific)
