Skills

I have a vast amount of experience in web development. I specialize in responsive design which is a pillar of modern web design in a world where over half of all internet traffic is handled by mobile browsers. I design websites from the ground up based on the needs of my client. My abilities range from straightforward static websites, to highly dynamic and user driven platforms. Whether you just want a simple page, or a highly interactible experience, I can create exactly what you need.

I have been developing apps for the various app stores since I was in high school, over 8 years ago. I have a wealth of experience in publishing apps, and I can get your business or idea in front of an entirely new audience. A sleek and modern website is the foundation of almost any business; however, a mobile application is a highly overlooked opportunity for growth. It gives you the opportunity to live alongside peoples mobile devices to provide them with instant updates and notifications through the use of push notifications.

My Work

Meme Run 2

I designed and developed the website for the game Meme Run 2. The development of this website was challenging and extremely rewarding. I built it from the ground up to suit my clients unique needs. This is a great example of how I am able to problem solve and come up with solutions to a design request that seem impossible or extremely challenging, as several effects used on this website were quite original and had to be developed by scratch.

I developed the backend system for the LearnCS8 online learning platform, which is designed and ran by Jordan Schuetz. LearnCS8 took the place of an outdated online learning system used by the Computer Science Department at UC Riverside. This course is still used by over 700 students every academic quarter at UCR in order to learn the fundamentals of HTML and CSS.

I developed a database of sold properties for a Real Estate office in New Jersey. The agents can list their sold properties along with relevant information, and potential customers can use this database to search through any and all of their agent’s previously sold properties.

Crowdfunding Complete, Now Hosted Locally For My Portfolio

GitHub Source Code

I developed a crowdfunding page for a Canadian Web Series. The owners of the web series wanted to raise funding for their series independently of popular crowd funding websites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo, so I was tasked with creating a crowdfunding service independently through their website. They raised several thousand dollars through this platform.

Restaurant Was Sold, App No Longer In Use. Screenshot Linked Above.

I developed an app for the restaurant Scramblz in San Jose, CA. The application is no longer available as the restaurant was sold by the owner. The app allowed staff to upload new specials and discounts, which would send push notifications to users of the app who opted for them. It helped drive extra business by keeping customers notified of the newest deals and menu options.

Fishy Feast was an app I developed for the Barnes & Noble NOOK App Store, the Amazon App Store, the iTunes App Store, and the Google Play Store. It is a family friendly game which provides countless hours of fun for all ages. You play as a fish who starts out tiny, and eats his way up the food chain to be the biggest fish in the sea. I ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the development and publication of this game.

Math Race Online was a children's educational app I developed for the Barnes & Noble NOOK App Store, the Amazon App Store, the iTunes App Store, and the Google Play Store. It was the first and only multiplayer math game on the market. It enabled children to develop their math skills while still having fun doing it. This application was used by several teachers and tutors to help their students work on their math skills, and I'm quite proud to have had a positive impact on many children's educational development.

About

About Me

My name is Tyler Richards. I'm a freelance web developer and software developer. I grew up in the Bay Area, and moved to Reno, Nevada in 2016. I'm a college student currently attending the University of Nevada, Reno, as a member of the class of 2021. I will be graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems. I also have an Associates Degree in Business from Truckee Meadows Community College.

I became curious about programming when I was in middle school, around the time that Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone. I became intrigued with how websites worked and wanted to know how to build one myself, so I looked around the internet and self-taught myself basic HTML and CSS through browsing https://www.w3schools.com/. In high school, I began developing websites for friends as a hobby. When I was in 12th grade, I published my first app to the Google Play Store. I developed a handful of apps and websites throughout the rest of my senior year. Fast forward to today, over 8 years later, and I have continually developed websites and apps professionaly as a career to help pay for college and beyond.

Given my self-taught nature, I'm extremely good at troubleshooting and if anyone can find a way to bring your idea to life through a website or an app, it's me. I have the persistence and the knowledge to get the job done, and give you an end product that you can be proud of.
