Frances Naty Go - Freelancer
Founder and Full Stack LAMP Developer at Goldlilys Media
- Location San Diego, United States
- Local time 08:56 PM
- Experience 7 years
I graduated with a Computer Science degree at UC San Diego. Have experience working for government contracts, digital & marketing agencies and currently freelancing. I have the capabilities to adapt and work efficiently in any environment. I am able to work well with a team as well as solo.
Currently, I collaborate with designers and marketing SEO entrepreneurs as a freelancer so can effectively work with designers and diverse teams to build client sites. I also communicate directly with clients to solve their issues in a friendly and easy manner where they feel valued when asking questions.
I have experience building websites using Drupal 6, 7 and 8, WordPress and recently been playing with Grav for clients who don’t want database-driven CMS. I am open to learning new technologies and have fun doing it.
Before using CMSs, I've used PHP directly so I'm capable of developing custom modules/plugins. However, when I build custom modules for Drupal, I tend to use Features, Strongarm and override the .module file with PHP code.
I've also maintained websites done by previous teams and make changes necessary to fix issues with a focus on detail, performance and web standards.
I have experience with Git, Gulp, and Grunt to simplify my development process. Mostly use Bootstrap for Drupal theming. My favorite IDE is PHPStorm, but also fine with Sublime or VI to make small changes in CLI. I mostly use MAMP Pro to build local instances of Drupal websites and use Git repo to clone in the dev, staging and production sites.
I try to add as much documentations to my code so other developers can understand and like to help plan things out in the beginning when structuring content types and how a website should be built so that it functions well and is easy for the client to understand and maintain.

I hired Frances to update my HTML 5 e-commerce website. She was quick at implementing a large amount of back-end changes to streamline the look and feel of the site. I was impressed that even though she had never worked with this type of website, she still fulfilled all my requests. She's quick, professional, and knowledgeable. I would recommend her services to any business owner looking for quality website development.
President at Vision Systems Technology
I reviewed her portfolio and several published designs. Right away, I could tell that she was highly sophisticated in her designs, but in a very subtle way where you were not overwhelmed with the “technology” aspects behind the webpage. The elegance of a well design user interface and intuitive style of navigation was apparent. Indeed she was a designer we wanted to help us. We found Frances to be highly skilled and versed in web design and development. Frances brought in one of her graphic designers, Vina Rathakoune, to listen to our website upgrade requirements. Our camera business was unique and unfamiliar to Frances and Vina. However, they quickly understood what we needed in the first meeting. They reviewed our website and gave us a walkthrough of what could be done on the existing website and a recommendation for a new webpage built on Drupal, one of the major web software today. Frances was a real superstar in getting the webpage loaded and optimized for performance on our servers. After the launch, Frances has been extremely valuable in helping us add additional capabilities. She is very responsive, reliable and a great communicator. Oh, I forgot to add she is a pleasure to work with. My standards as a broadly skilled techie is very high and I do not recommend people unless they measure up to these expectations. I highly recommend Frances Naty Go and her company, Goldlilys Media, as a web designer and developer who will work closely with you to make the process simple and get you a leading-edge website you can be proud of.

Frances has been working with my company, ReAdventured, for over a year and I have been continually impressed with both her technical skills and excellent client service. She is very adept at developing websites in both Drupal and Wordpress (including other CMS), really understands how to maintain websites (such as plugin, addons, and operating updates), and is very proactive in making sure the client understands how to work with their website. Frances personally took her time to train me on my Woo Commerce site, which can be a little tedious to work with as a non-programmer. She is very responsive when I call to talk about site problems and makes recommendations on how to improve the functionality of my websites. I would highly recommend Frances for any of your programming needs! Joan Brackin Founder-ReAdventured and Someday Is Now
