About Erik


My name is Erik Klingman, and I am a web developer living in Boston, Massachusetts. I have been working as a web software developer for the past 8 years, on a variety of projects and in a variety of industries.

I particularly enjoy projects where I can work on the project at every level of development. Starting with setting up the server the application is to run on - whether it's a physical machine for a local client, or configuring a remote machine at a colocation facility or in the cloud (e.g., Amazon Web Services) - and configuring the server software. I prefer to use open source software whenever possible, so this usually means some flavor of *nix (Ubuntu or CentOS Linux, or sometimes FreeBSD Unix), and a web server such as Apache or Nginx.

I also like getting involved at every level of application development, from setting up the database I make this look good schema, to chopping up Photoshop mockups into clean, accessible HTML and CSS, to writing the business logic code to tie everything together.

On the portfolio page, you can peruse some of the work I've done over the years. You can also click one of the buttons in the header to connect with me via Twitter or LinkedIn.

I am currently available for freelance work at any level of the application development process, but have a full-time job, and so cannot devote heavy resources to potential projects. You can get in touch with me via any of the methods below. If you're inquiring about a project, please make sure to include some details, such as scope, budget, and timeframe. If you just want to chat, email away!
