I'm Richard Sacco - Web Developer

I'm a web developer from Southern California with three years of experience in the industry. In those three years, I've created sites where I've done a good amount of engineering with PHP back ends, such as: Ajax requests, optimizing queries, regular CRUD operations, and even building Ajax interfaces. I am comfortable using a variety of web development tools, including: composer, git version control, Sass, Less, and Gulp.

In terms of back end development I am most comfortable with CakePHP 2.x and CakePHP 3.x. I co-developed a content management system for realtors in CakePHP. I would say my front end skills are stronger just because I have more experience on the frontend and love standards-compliant HTML and clean compartmentalized CSS. I have also completed PHP based websites with the use of various content management systems (Drupal, Wordpress, Magento).

Whether it's front end development or back end programming I have a can do attitude and learn fast on the job, and I relish professional development opportunities like attending conferences to network and build my knowledge. I am learning new things every day and pushing myself further and further--to get to the next level.

Thanks for taking a look at my portfolio,
Richard Sacco

Company Projects

TheBoutiquere was developed while working for SMSold, a company that specializes in creating custom websites for real estate agents. My role was to redo a lot of the pages given a new comp. I worked a lot on the video portion to get it to work on desktop as well as on iPad. The site is fully responsive. I rebuilt most of the front end code from scratch and I built it before I started using bootstrap in websites (which I tend to do now but I still use an older workflow I developed with SASS sometimes). The website was built with a Cake 2.x backend.
Omega Group
Omega Group was also developed while working for SMSold. It's mostly a one page site. Built with the Sold 5 platform which is a Cake 2.x based content management system that I had a hand in developing which allows customers to easily edit, add, and delete listings. They could also determine to some degree how listings show up on the front end. Omega was the first site where I developed the front end using bootstrap. I did the work of implementing the comp given to me as well as writing the queries to display the necessary data.
San Diego Sports Acupuncture is a website I worked on briefly while working for Tragic Media. It was my first time working to make a website responsive. Built in Drupal I skinned parts of the website and was responsible for most of the responsive process.

Freelance Projects

Salt And Pepper Weddings
This was a website I made in Drupal for my client to be able to advertise his wedding video business. The website is fully customizable by the client. Every image can be uploaded, every piece of text can be changed via the Drupal backend. The site is responsive.
Ann Sacco
This is a website I built for my mother. Has a cake 3 backend with lead retention. Built off of a bootstrap theme. The pictures are pictures of Temecula.

Notable Git Projects

I have been working on testing Bootstrap 4 for Friend's of Cake Bootstrap UI which is a project built to make the lives of people who use cake and bootstrap easier by producing bootstrap compatible mark up with CakePHP functions. This website demonstrates that Bootstrap 4 is backwards compatible with all the generated HTML from this plug in.
