Welcome

Hey there, I’m Jay. I’m a lead back-end developer @ WebDevStudios, Star Trek Geek, Space Finatic, Gamer, and Father of 3 amazing ( and sometimes annoying ) kids.

First and foremost, I’m a WordPress guy; tell me something can’t be done in WordPress, and I’ll prove you wrong. I can be found lingering on Twitter @plugish, over at Github @JayWood making ‘dem repos, or if you want to know me on a personal level, over on Facebook @therealjaywood.

WebDevStudios

In 2014 I made the shift from freelancer over to a full-time developer. Admittedly I made some crazy mistakes when freelancing, things I look back now and just shake my head in shame.

Freelancing provided some general insight for me, but I wasn’t really prepared. So I made the conscientious decision to get educated about the web development world.

In the 2+ years I’ve been with WebDevStudios I’ve had the privilege to work with some of the largest companies you could imagine. With each project, I was presented with very unique challenges. Which overall has made me a better developer and changed my code for the better.

I look forward to working with this amazing team for the years to come.

I’m a Plugin Developer

While my skill set is well-rounded, I specialize strictly in plugins. I find HTML and CSS quite boring. I know some front-end developers will hate me for that, but we all have our own specialty.

API’s are always on my radar, and if I have the chance to work with a new and untouched API, you can bet I’ll be there.

Getting data from one site to another, or even importing complex files is something I’m always game for. Data migration is something I’ve done a lot over at WebDevStudios, so I make sure I’m always up to date on that skill set.

Tell me something cannot be done with WordPress, and I’ll do my best to prove you wrong.
