About Me

I'm Scott Robertson in Fallon, NV with over 22 years experience as a freelance PHP Developer and Technical Project Manager. I know many programming languages and other technologies. I am an Eagle Scout and an easy going, laid back, loyal kind of guy.

My experience ranges from small tasks that take only a few moments to complete, to large projects that span years and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. I have managed teams made up of on-shore and off-shore developers, designers, writers, virtual assistants, quality assurance checkers, etc. I have been tasked with finding, hiring, on boarding, training, managing and even firing the staff.
