Custom Websites and Cloud Computing Web Database Applications: Powerful, Professional and Fast
Do you need a powerful and professional website, or a cloud computing, customized web database application?
Forward-thinking companies are realizing the power and flexibility of cloud-based applications. They're multi-user and accessible from anywhere in the world.
I'm the co-founder of the Significato Journal. I specialize in building websites that range from magazine websites to complex, custom, cloud-based web database applications that will allow you or your employees to work from anywhere.
I use a Content Management Framework and "CMS" (Content Management System), called "ProcessWire" (http://processwire.com), which is built with PHP and MySQL.
I've been programming databases since 1987, and programming web database applications since 1996.
I've designed and programmed large, custom, business applications, many spanning hundreds of hours of work, resulting in large, robust applications that have been used for years by satisfied clients.
My rates are reasonable, at $125 per hour, in 15 minute increments. I don't bill by flat fee. Instead, I bill hourly, with payment due upon invoice receipt, and communicate closely with clients. My goal with clients is to produce work for them that makes them feel "utterly delighted" with the result.
I've listed my résumé below, which includes examples of my projects.

Comments from Major Clients
Quote from former NewBay Media Supervisor, New York City:
“I have worked with Peter for over six years and have seen firsthand his expert problem-solving and project management skills in action. Always looking to learn in the changing world of digital media and grow his skills, he has proven to be an experienced senior leader of the digital team at NewBay Media and is heavily relied on for his opinion and insight.”

Quote from a Science/Aviation Client in Alaska:
“A number of years ago while doing a web search for a database developer, I came across Peter Brown and was impressed enough by his website that I decided to call him. From that first phone call, I knew I had found the developer that I was looking for. His professional manner, broad knowledge base and his willingness to help lead me and flex with me was invaluable as I worked through the process of designing a database that fit my specific needs and in getting that database online. Over the past few years, Peter has always been available at a moments notice when the need arose to help fix broken web links or modify the database as our needs evolved. His integrity and professionalism are rare commodities these days. I have no compunctions in highly recommending him to anyone needing database development.”
Tim Veenstra ~ CEO of Airborne Technologies Incorporated ~ Wasilla, Alaska
A Major Client in Silicon Alley in Manhattan:
"I have worked with many programmers over the years and never have I worked with a programmer who not only understood programming but also understood that great programming cannot hide poor logic. Peter F. Brown's ability to deal with people and his understanding of logic, coupled with his programming knowledge, made him by far the best programmer I have ever had the pleasure of working with."
Remy Arteaga, Chief Operating Officer and Founder, Extreme Interactive Media Inc., New York, NY

Quote from a Publishing Client in Silicon Valley:
“Of the dozens of programmers with whom we have had contact during the past couple of years, Peter Brown stands head and shoulders above the rest. This I say categorically and without hesitation. The programming he has written for us works very well. Peter is a rare combination of talent, competence and responsibility. My only regret is that I did not find him sooner!”
Daniel K. Berman, Ph.D. ~ Former Director, CyberTip4theDay ~ San Francisco Bay Area
Quote from an Industrial Services Client in Virginia:
“Ten years ago Peter Brown wrote a large database program for Central Virginia Maintenance that has proven to be extremely robust. It’s now January, 2001, and the program has demonstrated its complete Y2K compliance. We’ve processed millions of dollars in invoices with this program. We use this program on a daily basis and couldn’t imagine life without it now. It has been an enjoyable and trouble-free program – it’s still going strong! Thank you Peter!”
