Hello and welcome! My name is Joel Ramirez, and I am a passionate web developer with 8 years of experience in creating dynamic, user-friendly websites and web applications.
My journey as a web developer began 8 years ago, when I discovered my love for coding and building things from scratch. Since then, I have been on a mission to master the latest web technologies and programming languages, so that I can deliver the best possible solutions for my clients.

An eCommerce website is an online platform that allows businesses to sell products or services to customers over the internet. It typically includes a catalog of products with detailed descriptions, prices, and images, as well as a shopping cart and checkout process for customers to purchase items. eCommerce websites often require customers to create an account and provide payment information, which is then securely processed by the website's payment gateway.
A simple website that provides information about the business and its products or services. It typically includes a home page that introduces the business, an about page that provides information about the business owners or team, a services or products page that describes what the business offers, and a contact page that allows customers to get in touch with the business.
