Web Developer, Drupal Specialist and all-around Web Guy
Gerrit Brands, MBA, MS
I've been developing web sites since the late 1990s. My very first web site was for my dad's construction business that I developed using Microsoft's Front Page. Those were the days! In college, I found a job as an Assistant Web Developer for the college's own web site and that is when my web developing days really took off. I wanted to learn everything I could about web development: web servers, languages, markup language, content strategy, analytics, search engine optimzation, the list can go on and on...
Lately, I've been spending a lot of time with the Drupal CMS. I have found it to be very powerful, able to build feature-rich sites, where the developer is able to focus on business logic and not the repetitive nature of building HTML forms and the like.
My main goal with all of the sites and applications I build is efficiency. Drupal not only makes my development efficient, but it also allows me to build efficiency for my clients. From updating their own site to social media integration, Drupal covers the gamut of the web spectrum!
