Hi! I'm Jeffrey a Professional Developer

I’m a sports enthusiast, loving father, and dedicated developer who enjoys building web applications that make lives easier. Want to discuss some topics? Join me for a cup of coffee!

My Skills

Test-Driven Development

I practice TDD by implementing PHPUnit in order to write clean testable code which guarantees that the correct results are returned.

Professional Code

I develop with industry standards in mind as well as the implementation of MVC architecture to my projects which allows for multiple benefits from SEO optimization to asynchronous coding.

Data Driven Design

I protect the project data by storing it in secure and custom structured databases while using ActiveRecord implementations for SQL databases.

Lessons I've Learned

Bootstrap and Flex?

So upon downloading and working with Bootstrap 4 which is still in alpha release mode I have noticed a lot of great differences that I am very fond of now. Especially with the cards component and my personal favorite right now, utility class additions for increasing padding and margins for elements and not to mention borders as well.

Laravel 5.5 Is Almost Here

Laravel is about to release the next public version of 5.5 in a few weeks which is the newest version that will offer LTS (Lifetime Support) to its developers. With the new additions that will be available in this version I sure and getting excited for its release.

How I'm Handling Fatherhood

On April 27th, 2017, my wife gave birth to our first child. Our new baby girl was born ten weeks early due to a medical condition my wife had suddenly developed called HELLP. Two months later I still get scared for the future. I wonder how good of a father I will be.

My Story

My name is Jeffrey Davidson, I am originally from Kansas City, KS and am currently residing in Kissimmee, FL. I recently joined the Royal Daddy Diaper Forces, when my wonderful wife gave birth to our beautiful little girl in April 2017. This new addition to our lives has changed my life and I now aim to keep a healthy balance between family and work.

I love exploring new places, meeting new people and learning. I plan on traveling to Europe and Japan in the future with my family, with hopes of visiting the Guinness Brewery in Ireland!

When I am not spending time with my daughter, I am working on my next client's project, researching trending industry topics or investing time in personal development projects. But I also enjoy spending my free time hitting doubles for my softball team and raising pots in Texas Hold'em.

Have a project in mind?

Let's meet over an endless cup of coffee and we’ll get started.
