About DevKardia/HartlessByDesign

HartlessByDesign, LLC hosts the web applications I've created and want to make available to you. I'm also providing various Joomla services.

Below are some quick answers to some possible questions you may have:

Who are you?

My name is Alan. Hi! I've used Joomla since it's birth and Mambo for several years before that. I develop web applications using PHP, MySQL, and basic web languages.

Why "HartlessByDesign?"

I know, sounds bad doesn't it?  But, I have my reasons with the first simply being that my last name is Hartless.  Secondly, I believe I was born into the Hartless family for a reason i.e. by design.  Therefore, I am Hartless by design.  Thirdly, I design! Code that is; not so much graphics design as described below.  :-)

Where did DevKardia come from?

DevKardia stems comes from a couple things. First, as mentioned above, I'm not really a graphics designer.  You show me what you want and I can usually make it happen.  But designing graphics and site themes from scratch was unfortunately something I was not blessed with.  So I'm moving away from "design" to more of what I do best: "develop." Even though I'm named Hartless, those that know me can attest that I'm not heartless at all and thus find it very ironic that I'm named such.  I still want a little play on words of course and so want to go with something regarding the "heart." Kardia is ancient Greek for "heart" but it means so much more.  It seems to also refer to the mental, physical, and spiritual states of individuals; their understanding and intelligence; their passions, desires and purposes; and their will and character. My desire for the company is to show heart, soul, understanding, knowledge and purpose.  Thus, the name DevKardia has come to be.
