Wes Lord

Journeyman Programmer

This gun's for hire

I'm a Canadian full-stack programmer.

Need some React? How about TypeScript? Or maybe a little Django? Those are my specialties, but I'm broadly curious and ready to pick up new languages and frameworks.

(...except Java.)

Above all, I like helping interesting companies build cool things. If you're building a cool thing and need a pair of skilled hands, get in contact and let's set up a contract.


Can I get a witness?

Thorough, communicative, and timely.
Superlative quality of work.
His technical expertise was crucial to building our enterprise application.
Abdel-Aziz Shehata
COO of StrategyBox
Goes above and beyond with everything from scoping to execution, and great communication throughout the project.
Matt Carlson
Managing Director of Floorspace
I had database problems in the middle of a major research project. Not only did he answer all my technical questions, Wes knew which questions to ask in the first place.
Consulting with him should have been my first step.
Dr. Steven Ray Orr, PhD
Carleton University
He's a pleasure to work with!
Aaron Vidas
CEO/Founder of StrategyBox
