I help businesses get Laravel code back in shape.

My Story

Hello, I'm Janez Cergolj (@jcergolj), and I am a seasoned Laravel developer.

I specialise in working on existing and well-established Laravel projects.

I am not a 10x or full-stack developer, and even though I am experienced, there is still a lot left to learn. I have made my fair share of mistakes, which have led to some interesting horror stories, but I have taken those experiences and learned from them. If we do not learn from our mistakes, we cannot hope to improve.

Over 11+ years, I have gained a TOP CERT ranking as a Laravel/back-end web developer, on the freelance site known as People per hour. I reached this ranking as I pride myself on my high level of communication, transparency and honesty. During those eleven years, I have had the privilege of working with many small businesses, helping them enhance, fix or upgrade existing Laravel projects. I create authentic connections with my clients, which shines through in the testimonials I have received.

I write maintainable, self-explained and well-documented code supported by automated tests. Working with such an approach allows me to upgrade code easily, add new features, and I have experienced fewer bugs while doing it. Those things are immensely crucial for clients whose projects are already in production.

I would also like to thank @calebporzio, @gonedark, @jeffrey_way, @colindecarlo, @adamwathan, @stauffermatt, @reinink, who are just a handful of the people I have had the privilege to learn from.
