nvision solutions, a leading Toronto web marketing agency, is pleased to announce the addition of Senior Web Developer Nathan Marks to its web design and development team.
Marks brings a broadly-based background of education and experience in PHP and SQL programming in addition to extensive HTML5, CSS3 and Java skills.
But it's Marks' talents with WordPress application development and customization that particularly caught the attention of George Arabian, President of nvision, who recruited Marks. "We need someone to complement our ever growing custom WordPress business," said Arabian, "With Nathan on board; we can offer our customers unique application development and customizations that they can't get elsewhere."
Developed as an open-source platform for blogging, WordPress is increasingly used for mainstream website development due to its versatility as a content management system (CMS) and the wide-range of "plugins" (software components that add functionality, like a photo gallery plugin) that are available for it. According to Wikipedia, almost 25% of new websites are built on WordPress.
"I'm really happy to be part of the nvision team. Their focus on WordPress development, responsive web design, HTML5 and CSS3 all fit my skillset very well. It feels good to be in a situation where I can contribute to what the company is doing now and where it's going in the future," said Marks, who studied software engineering at England's University of Brighton. "I taught myself PHP to get more into gaming and university gave me the core programming concepts and principles that are tough to get on your own."
In addition to his broad base of coding knowledge, Marks boasts an equally varied work experience. Following university Marks joined an online technical journal that gave him the opportunity to learn about and test new software and hardware before its release to the public. "It was great, if Intel had a new chip, they sent it to me to test." Marks has since worked as a consultant and contractor for a wide range of web development companies on both sides of the Atlantic.
It's Marks' deep understanding of PHP that made him a natural at building and customizing WordPress applications and plugins. "Our customers have specific requirements that 'out-of-the-box' plugins can't meet. With Nathan on board, we can meet those requirements without reinventing the wheel, but we can reinvent it if we have to."
