Your website is built on an open source CMS platform—WordPress. (or Drupal) Thousands of developers are writing and testing updated code for the platform on a daily basis—that’s part of what makes it “open source”. This results in a number of release updates, sometimes weekly, that include new features, security updates, and bug fixes. Most important are the security updates. There is usually one critical security fix affecting the core technology every 1-2 months. There are also various updates to custom add-on plugins used in the CMS every month or so.

I've been working with Sean for over 3 years now, and he is far and away the most dependable and professional web developer I've ever worked with. I would recommend him to anyone for front-end and back-end development.
Sean is a really good front- and back-end web developer. He’s produced some awesome Drupal and Wordpress sites for me. Coding is a real passion for him—he’s always eager to learn new skills and he’s easy to communicate with. He gets it done on-time and won’t hesitate to do what it takes to meet the deadline.
I have worked with Sean on many programming and design projects with great success. He delivers on all timelines and deadlines. Not only does he complete projects with great accuracy, he provides insight and industry knowledge to every project. His response time is up-to-the second and never leaves a question without a response. I will continue to work with Sean and highly recommend him to anyone who needs work done quickly and efficiently. He is a pretty nice guy as well.
Sean is an extremely talented web designer, and is always our go to for build outs. Whether it’s a ground up new site or changes/updates to an existing property, we simply won’t use anyone else. His customer service, fast execution and attention to detail put him consistently in front of his peers. Can’t recommend him enough.
We are a state of the art winery in the Napa Valley. We have an expectation for excellence in all that we do. Once we found Sean, we knew he was working at a level that would satisfy our needs. He is creative, focused and returns quality improvements to us in a very timely fashion. His response time is magical. He keep us up to date and secure, things our customers deserve. He provides us with the best ideas, feedback for the best value while still helping us drive results. We highly recommend his services.
We are pretty low-tech. We make wine for a living. For years Sean has shielded us from all the technical details and just made sure we were building a site that worked and had ease of use. He understood the need, he knew how to get us there. Sean’s ability to develop creative solutions to the needed functionality and user experience made for a great end result. I continue to be impressed with his 24/7 attention to detail and every aspect of his skills.
I am so grateful that I was referred to Sean for web development. He is an excellent problem solver with a great work ethic. We have completed several successful projects together, and I have total confidence that he will get the job done efficiently with a high standard of quality every time.
