Infectious Passion

The Résumé of Will Brall

Who am I?

Now celebrating over a dozen years of Web UX, Design and Development excellence.

My goals are simple. I want to challenge myself. I am looking for difficult tasks, the kind of complex applications that I need to lead a team to complete.

I have a proven track record of being able to identify, architect, implement and lead others in implementing cost-saving and revenue-bringing projects. For the last half a decade I have been a core member and thought-leader of the Zenimax Online Studios' web team in support of The Elder Scrolls Online. There I have created and architected systems that drive the marketing, sales and retention of millions of players.

Do you have a need for a web developer with a wide range of abilities? Video games? Artificial Intelligence? Huge scales? The bleeding edge? Beyond the bleeding edge? I am your man.

What do I do?

I consider myself a senior+ level expert in user driven development, MySQL, PHP, HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I consider myself an expert overall in many more web technologies and tools, have a fine grasp of the high level needs of servers/integration/configuration/tools/et al, as well as being a skilled UX, Game and Graphic Designer. Creative and technical writing, musical composition, mentoring, dungeon mastering... You could call me a full-stack developer; but my skillset is undersold by that title.

I've written production code in PHP, JS, Ruby, Java, Action Script, Perl, and C#. I've written personal projects in C, C++, COBOL, BASIC, Python, Blitz Basic, BlitzMax, C64 Basic, BrainFuck, Piet, JASS and probably a dozen things I can't remember right now. I've used more frameworks, libraries, scripting, pre-processing, and query languages than I can name: XML, DHTML, XSLT, JSON, CSV, Markdown, Server Side Includes, Blade, Handlebars, SASS, LESS, Coffee Script, too many SQLs, jQuery, Laravel, CodeIgniter, PEAR, Symphony...
