Custom programming and databases
for media agencies, designers and business owners, since 2002
I am Anthony Lopez-Vito, operating under my company, Another Cup of Coffee. I use the term website engineering because my work usually involves the stuff that happens behind the scenes: programming, databases and servers. Media agencies, creative professionals and site owners hire me to help them build and maintain websites.
You can slot me in a project to work alongside your existing team of designers and developers. Alternatively, I can put together and manage a team of associates who work remotely and collaborate with me online. Although Another Cup of Coffee is incorporated in the United Kingdom, my clients and colleagues are based in different cities around the world.
Drupal to WordPress migration service
Everyone in this game needs a specialisation to stand out from the crowd. Mine is migrating data from the Drupal and WordPress content management systems. I offer a Drupal to WordPress migration service for media agencies and site owners who need an expert to work with them throughout the project.
A big part of my work involves helping people audit their site, then writing custom scripts to export content from Drupal, reformatting it for use in a WordPress content type or plugin if necessary. My migration workflow uses a toolkit of scripts and processes developed over the years working with both platforms. If you have an upcoming Drupal to WordPress migration project, please get in touch for a quote.
If you’re considering migrating your site, my Drupal to WordPress migration guide will help you understand the scope of the project.
Technology and skills
Lots of people have great technical skills. I’m also good at communicating with team members working remotely in different timezones.
Back-end and database programming
Hire me for projects that involve back-end programming challenges, specifically those that require analysing data and processing content. I will probably use Python, PHP or BASH shell scripting. In terms of relational database technologies, I normally use MySQL, PostgreSQL and Microsoft Access.
I have worked with a wide range of hosting providers over the years. This includes low-cost bulk hosting, cloud services and dedicated servers run from colocation datacentres in the City of London. Platforms cover most Unix-based operating systems (Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD) together with the standard LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack.
If you need a website, I will use WordPress and suggest that we customise a pre-made theme. For those who want ‘a visually stunning online presence that engages with your audience…’ well, there are other people who are very good at that kind of thing. In fact, you may be one of them, in which case you can hire me to work on the more technical areas of your project like plugin development or integration with other web services.
To get an good idea of my niche, think programming, databases and servers rather than industry insights and building brands.
