I Am Joseph Murphy


I'm a web developer in Memphis with a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Memphis. I’m looking for work in the web development industry, and I have an avid interest in making websites both functional and pleasing to view.

My Process

The development process starts with the thought process. What does the client need? What will make the project a success?

Without a thorough design process, the project will not be successful. Due to potential scope creep and other other unanticipated delays, the project could be subject to serious delays.

This next step involves implementing the current iteration and the user stories according to the client’s priorities.

After the completion of the current iteration, have the client give you feedback and create new user stories to further develop the project.

Finally, once the client is happy with the project, deliver and deploy it.
