About Me

my name is Rodd Dierker. I'm a freelance web programmer, graphic designer, website designer and e-business application developer, in business since 1996. I am skilled and highly experienced in every facet of modern web technology, including search engine performance and social media strategies. I'm not just a designer, I am also a programmer, coder and database architect. I do not simply slap together templates like most modern "web designers;" every website, e-business and mobile application I build is built from scratch, completely custom, and built entirely to meet the needs and wants of your small to mid-sized business, group or organization. All of my builds are guaranteed to be 100% error-free, meet all current search engine and World-Wide Web Consortium standards, and function properly on all devices from small smartphones and tablets to large desktops and widescreen television monitors.


Mission Statement

Your technology needs, and your need to understand technology, are always my highest priority. I provide extremely personal service and I am always available to answer your questions or help you in any way. I'm creatively gifted, technically savvy, and I fully understand how successful small and mid-sized businesses use technology. I'm always laser-focused on maximizing your return on investment, this means that application stability, security, usability, scalability and device compatibility are always my top priority. I’m quick to abandon a technology when it becomes clear that a new and better technology has been deployed. I never stop educating myself and I'm constantly learning new technologies and techniques. I take very great pride in the fact that every new project I build will always be just a little bit better than the last.

My Methodology

I employ the Agile Methodology which centers around short development sprints where software is developed and debugged within a shorter span of weeks or sometimes months. Agile is most often associated with modern web applications where frequent updates and changes are common as features are enhanced and new functions are routinely added. Agile methodology is an alternative to traditional project management and is the opposite of the Waterfall process where development follows a more traditional sequential process.

Samsung slammed by Chinese state TV over Note 7 recall 'discrimination'

A Samsung Electronics' Galaxy Note 7 new smartphone is displayed at its store in SeoulBy Sijia Jiang HONG KONG (Reuters) - Chinese state broadcaster CCTV has slammed South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics Co for what it said was "discrimination" against China consumers in its handling of a global recall of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones to replace batteries. In a commentary piece posted on its website on Thursday evening, CCTV said Samsung's behavior in China after the Sept. 2 recall of 2.5 million phones was "full of arrogance". CCTV said a video apology Samsung issued to U.S. consumers, along with various replacement options and compensation, was in stark contrast to its treatment of those in China, where the company issued a brief statement saying most phones didn't need to be replaced.

Rangers try gaming technology to protect African wildlife

By Neha Wadekar NAIROBI (Reuters) - The campaign to track down poachers and protect endangered species in Africa's embattled reserves is tapping into the technology used in the virtual world of online poker and other computer games. A U.S.-funded initiative is applying artificial intelligence and game theory algorithms to predict the movement of poachers, helping rangers who are testing the new technology in Uganda to find illegal hunters and their animal traps. "We're trying to predict future poacher attacks or where poachers may strike next based on what we have observed in the past on our patrols," Professor Milind Tambe from the University of Southern California, who is leading the initiative, said.

Watch live as the Rosetta probe 'softly’ crashes into comet 67P

Watch live as the Rosetta probe 'softly’ crashes into comet 67PThe ticker at the top of the European Space Agency's live stream says it all. After launching from Earth back in March 2004, the Rosetta space probe is preparing for its final mission — a controlled landing onto the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, where it's been in orbit for the last two years. This will be a relatively soft landing, with Rosetta hitting the surface at a leisurely pace of around 2mph, but it'll be enough to render the craft inoperative.

Cyprus court orders extradition of Egyptian hijacker

A court in Cyprus on Friday ordered the extradition of an Egyptian who hijacked an aircraft with a fake explosive belt, diverting it to the island in March. Seif Eldin Mustafa, 59, failed to convince the Nicosia district court that he could not get a fair trial in his home country, the semi-official Cyprus News Agency reported.
