David Maillard 

Since 2012, I have been focused on creating bespoke experiences on WordPress projects ranging from design, development, maintenance and related services. I am a Member of the Preferred Freelancer Program. I'm Belgian, 36 years-old living in São Paulo, speaking French, English and Portuguese. With countless happy customers, you're in safe hands. But before we start, I'd love to have a Video Chat with you to discuss your goals/expectations and to make sure we're a good fit together. Unsure about your needs? Let’s start by a small Discovery Project to deep dive into your particular situation and available solutions. Fields of Expertise: • Web Design, • Web Development WordPress-focused, • eCommerce Solutions by WooCommerce, • Responsive design, • Performance analysis and optimisation, • Strategic Partnerships like AWS, Rackspace or WP Engine, • Geek stuff: PHP, MySQL, CSS and more (see exams below). Something else in mind? Just ask, I probably can introduce you to the right person.

Publications

Curriculum Vitae

A couple of months before starting on Freelancer, I have been asked to create a CV. After some long minutes of thinking in front of a blank sheet, I've thrown away everything I knew about a Curriculum Vitae. I started doing one in Adobe Photoshop (correct, it's not the appropriate software!), in the form of a sausage machine where the reader is guided in a process and told a story. Don't be afraid to be original, it creates memorable experiences! Link available for customers.

AdoraWeb Factsheet

Explaining all the ins-and-outs of web technologies to business owners can be very challenging. In a sense, you are shifting the way they see the future. To facilitate this process we created a visual Factsheet that explains some of the core concepts from the most obvious to the most advanced. The Factsheet can be presented over a Video Chat session on Freelancer.

Nómades digitales, un nuevo modelo para trabajar con independencia

Como freelancers y autónomos, los jóvenes se resisten a emplearse dentro de una empresa de 9 a 18?y ofrecen su expertise mientras viajan por el mundo. "Un trabajo fijo es lo peor de la vida." La opinión de David Maillard, un experto en sistemas belga de 36 años que hace tres dejó su país natal para brindar servicios de desarrollo de sitios y de cloud computing a clientes de todo el mundo mientras vive y viaja por Brasil, resume simplificadamente el pensamiento de muchos nómadas digitales.

15 Million Lives Changed eBook

When Nikki Hernandez reached me to participate to their eBook, I was delighted to be able to share some insights about freelancing.

"A freelancer for 15 years, David discovered Freelancer a little late but quickly rose to become one of the site's sought-after preferred WordPress designers" Read more at pages 46-47.
