I have started working with WordPress in 2007 when WordPress 2.1 was released. Starting from 2009 I work only on WordPress projects, and I am dedicated on developing plugins, themes framework and themes for WordPress. My free plugins in the WordPress.org repository have been downloaded over 1.000.000 times since 2008 when I released my first plugin.
To see examples of my work and some of the projects I have worked on, you can visit following pages:
- Dev4Press.com Plugins: www.dev4press.com/plugins
- Portfolio (not regularly maintained): portfolio.gdragon.info
- WordPress.org Profile: profiles.wordpress.org/GDragoN
Some of my plugins have their own websites:
- GD Products Center: www.gdproductscenter.com
- GD bbPress Toolbox: www.gdbbpbox.com
- GD Custom Posts and Taxonomies Tools: www.gdcpttools.com
I can offer different types of services: from maintenance and review to development of complex plugins or whole websites on WordPress. I do not accept PayPal as a payment method, I prefer wire (bank) transfer as the highly secure and very reliable payment method.
If you need plugin or theme developed, or you need whole website done, some plugin or theme fixed and improved, I can help you with any of that. Over the past 6 years I have developed 30 custom plugins for various clients, and almost 20 plugins for my own company that are available as free or premium, depending on the plugin. My availability depends on how much is your project interesting, my current work load, while end price for the work is always something we can negotiate. My standard fee for such development is $40.00 per hour. But, depending the size of the project and other factors, this price can be lower.
If you need me to work on existing projects (fixing your plugins, adding features to plugins…), the fee for such development is $50.00 per hour.
Consultation and Training
If you need me in the consultation capacity or you need some personalized training, I am almost always available for such work. Consultation can be connected to my WordPress related products, or most anything else WordPress related. And same goes for personalized training. Consultation fee depends on what you need, and how much time you need me on the project. I need more information about what you need to give you the price.
Personalized training include direct contact over Skype (or GTalk) with use of some VNC, RemoteDesktop based or similar software for screen sharing to allow for easier communication, preview and testing of code. Price for this kind of training is $60.00 per hour, with minimum of 4 hours. For training of up to 16 hours, you must pay the full sum in advance ($960.00 or €775.00). For more than 16 hours, you pay 60% in advanced, and the rest after you use up 50% of purchased hours. If you need me to conduct training for more than 2 persons in the same time, fee goes up 15% for each additional person. If you have valid license for Dev4Press Plugins pack, price for consultation will be 15% lower. If you need more than 32 hours of consultation, price will be lower by another 15%.
Maintenance is the simplest service and includes: installation and configuration of WordPress, plugins or themes. I can’t guarantee that I can set up everything in every server environment, and if the server proves to be an issue, I can help with advises on how to set it up and what could be the problem. If you need less than 5 plugins installed and set up, price will be between $100.00 and $150.00 (depending on plugins), and for more complex installations, price can go over $200.00.
I have a lot of experience in optimization of plugins and over the past 2 years I have written about that many times, and I helped developers to create better plugins. If you want me to review your plugin for private purposes (you need to know what I think about coding, performance of the plugin and you need advises on what to improve), price is $250.00 per plugin. If you need review for the readers that will get published on the Dev4Press.com, price is $350.00 per plugin and in this case focus will be on usability, features and performance concerns important to end users. I will always try to write as objective review as possible.
