Hello, I'm Neil Keena.
I'm a full-stack web developer.

Interested in working together? Let's talk.

I've had the opportunity to build applications for business, non-profit, government, and education; giving me 10+ years of professional experience.

How I can Help

Code

I'm an expert in PHP, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. My favorite frameworks include Laravel, Vue.js, and Tailwind CSS.

APIs

Whether it's a web backend to a mobile app or connecting with third-party services; I have years of experience building and working with APIs.

Design

Everything from UI design, responsive layouts, UX, color and font selections; designing web applications is what I do best.

Database

I work primarily with relational databases in MySQL. I also have experience working with Redis servers, Memcached and file based caching.

Documentation

Besides writing well documented code, I've also written online documentation for both developers and users - complete with screencasts.

Servers

I'm proficient with managing hosting servers using Laravel's Forge and can provide zero-down time deployment with Envoyer.

Cloud

I've worked with Digital Ocean, AWS, and a number of CDNs. I can monitor servers and track errors using services like BugSnag, Sentry, and Blackfire.

Networks

I can configure load balancers, DNS, MX records, and SSL certificates. I've implemented both vertical and horizonal scaling solutions to increase performance.

Automation

Utilizing queued jobs with Redis, Beanstalkd, or Amazon's SQS, I can automate and schedule background tasks or send transactional emails.

About Me

I built my first website at 16 years old using nothing more than a simple text editor. Since then, I've been building web applications of all shapes and sizes. I built and currently manage applications for two non-profit charities missions.me and angelhouse.me. I've been the Senior Web Developer on staff at Missions.Me since 2014. I reside with my wife, Cathleen, in Orange County, California.

When I'm not writting code, I enjoy hiking, biking, traveling abroad, reading, good coffee, and Star Wars.
