  • LRT Marketing

    LRT Marketing Freelance Web Developer / Consultant | 2009 - 2012

    Staring off as a just another freelance web developer, I quickly scaled the ranks to become "the go to guy" for everything web related. I ended up leading all of the web development meetings and teaching clients as well as LRT Staff how to use a CMS.

    My biggest accomplishment with LRT was getting them to stop using Flash based websites and set them up with Joomla and WordPress! In doing so, I was able cut development time and costs, as well as give LRT another sales tool - clients can now manage their own website!!

  • Comp Meds

I was the only server admin, as such, responsible for every aspect of web hosting.

Cowboy Town
A rustic western website

Project overview

A brand new business to Fremont! Cowboy Town commissioned me to create a unique, rustic western styled website.

What I did

Spent countless hours researching authentic rustic western / cowboy material. Set my mind back several decades and tried to envision how "cowboys" would have designed a website.

With ideas in mind, I fired up Photoshop and began creating. After a few sessions of pushing pixels around, I submitted the elements for review. Upon much praise, I began converting the PSD to HTML5 and CSS3 with a touch of unobtrusive jQuery to spice things up just a bit, and used embedded fonts.

Topped the website off with some proper Search Engine Optimization and launched to an awaiting crowd of people egar to share the love!

Also created the logo in vector format which was applied to company vehicles, store windows and online avatars.

Database Code Generator
An AWESOME developer's tool for working with databases and websites / web applications!

  • DBCG Logged In
  • DBCG PDO Insert
  • DBCG Clean Post Variables
  • DBCG HTML5 Form
  • DBCG Database Statistics

Project overview

After years of writing PHP and MySQL forms and queries by hand, I decided enough was enough. I tried copying and pasting (reusing) code, using snippets, and writing generic functions to do some heavy lifting of database interactions but ultimately, it was all time consuming; and not every project is worth the overhead of OOP.

Continue Reading ...

I had tried all the techniques, tips and tricks I could Google, for working more efficiently with forms and database interactions - everything I found was still time consuming. I sat back and thought, "What if I could dump a database on a page and just remove the stuff I don't need? Surely its faster to highlight and delete rather than write it from scratch ..." And so came the birth of my Database Code Generator.

I set out to create a tool that will hook into any database I point it at, evaluate its columns and give me over 100 different options that I can copy and paste into the project without having to write a lick!

What I did

This is written in PHP 5 using nothing more than Notepad++!! I hand code everything I do!

I started by creating the backend - a simple "Select All" query that displayed the result in an HTML Table. Worked like a dream! Easier deleting the few columns (query and table) than coding everything else!! I started adding more and more functions as time went on.

Continue Reading ...

Then I made it more universal: DBCG hooks into a database and displays its tables. I select the table I want to work with and then the system grabs the columns from that table. I select what I want the system to generate and click it. Copy and paste the code into the project and I'm done!

This project is under continual development!

I must say this is one awesome piece of script here! This is going to save me so much time. I can't begin to describe how handy this truly is. Bradley, you are a rocking godsend!

I was looking for something like this. I have tried a few other programs before (a lot more expensive like 30X as much!) This is what i needed! I am a moderate coder, this just boasts production time, i can easily edit the code to fit my needs! I am using phpBB for a user management (why renvent the wheel eh?) and so far the integration is going smoothly. There are some things in the database such as user id that i don't want displayed but removing that is much quicker then having to code all this my self! Keep up the great work!

AnIonSEO
A webmaster dream toolbox!!

Project overview

Being a webmaster is not as easy as it once was, and some make it harder than what it needs to be!

This is a toolbox every webmaster wants, but no one wants to code!!

Continue Reading ...

When I have free time, I write bots and tools. When not writing bots/tools out of necessity, I get ideas by searching the web for tools others have written and write them in my own unique way.

Some call it reinventing the wheel, I call it coding for fun - practice does make perfect!!

What I did

I custom wrote just about every one of these tools - some out of necessity, others just for fun. I selfishly kept these on my private internal server for many, many years - tweaking, improving, perfecting. One day I was like "You know what? I should share these!" and so my toolkit was released.

So, here it is, a toolbox with over 80 different tools dedicated to webmasters like myself

    Animated Twitter Button Designed by Edgar; Brought to life by Bradley Klco - Jun 11, 2012

    Edgar dribbbled this cool Animated Twitter Button. I took his jpeg image, chopped it into 8 images in PhotoShop. Using jQuery delay function on a Click event, I was able to animate the "flip". Check out the demo

    Zombait Designed by Zack Smith; Brought to life by Bradley Klco - Jul 30, 2012

    Zack sent me a vector of his dribbbled brain. I turned that into an SVG, then with the help of IcoMoon, turn it into a web font (woff, ttf, and eot.) I wrote a quick little jQuery script that scales the brain based on the slide bar. Using CSS I colored the individual "characters" of the fonts and laid them on top of each other to reproduce the brain - in color - and scalable!! Check out the demo

5 Years of freelancing at a glance

Below you will find 5 years of projects I've done through 6 agencies.
Unfortunately, the timeline cannot cope with all 120+ projects, so I randomly selected a few!!

All dates are as accurate as possible, then best guessed, followed by a little fudge factoring for display purposes.
