Background

My name is Ben and I'm a software developer in the Las Vegas Area. I have been doing web development and Linux Server administration for over 6 years.

Most of my recent work has been with React and Node.js - I also have experience with Angular(6/7/8), Polymer.js, jQuery, Webpack, Gulp, and a lot of other tools. I have integrated with Stripe, MailChimp, Google Maps, Twitter, and more.

On my servers I have set up automated deployment, automated backups, ssl certificates, web servers, and databases.

My best accomplishment so far is Official-Typing-Test.com - it gets about 1,000,000 page views per month with around 70% of that traffic coming from Google. I programmed the app, designed the site, set up the server, then did the SEO and link building.
