CloakHosting

Cloak Hosting is an entirely new breed of SEO hosting. While many companies offer hosting plans tuned specifically for SEO purposes, none of them approach the level of sophistication proffered by Cloak Hosting.

Leaving behind the old model of a few servers loaded down with hundreds of IP addresses, low quality performance, and mediocre support, Cloak Hosting is based on super reliable Cloud hosting but paired with a massive cloaking layer at a scale unprecedented in the hosting space.

Publicity Hub

Publicity Hub provides done-for-your press release writing and distribution services. Specifically focused on raising awareness with small to medium sized businesses, Publicity Hub helps demystify the entire process.

Customers monitor their publicity through a simple dashboard, where they can order new press releases, track the status of in-process releases, and measure the effectiveness of previous campaigns. They can also engage the cruise control on their promotion by signing up for regularly scheduled press releases.

Recommendations

Branden is a highly skilled web developer and Linux server administrator, and would be an asset to any company. Branden was a valuable and fundamental part of our development team. Branden proved to be a fast learner, with an extraordinary aptitude for picking up new technologies and concepts. Branden also brought a wealth of knowledge to our development team, teaching his team members how to best leverage and manage Linux servers. From setting up complex server stacks in the cloud, to developing cutting edge web applications, I would highly recommend Branden for the job.

Craig Boileau | colleague

Branden handled everything I asked of him quickly, precisely and without the need for any do overs. He knows how to move and store data safely and securely. He can handle cloud issues efficiently. I would work with him again in the future.

Joe Johnson | business-partner

Branden is one of the true PHP Ninjas. What most developers take weeks to do, Branden can do in days. His work is a point of personal pride and as such he NEVER backs down in the face of a challenge. In fact, some would call his persevering attitude stubbornness, but it has always been my opinion that such traits are strengths when it comes to anyone working in the IT business.

The Telecommute Job Searcher

As CraigsList is my primary source for applying for Telecommute jobs, I needed a faster/easier way to search for new jobs in all of the US. I created this to do just that, it first grabs all the locations in the US, then it searches for new posts beginning with the date specified.
