About My Services

Hello, Makoto here!

I have had a passion for web development from a young age, building my first website when I was 15 years old and expanding it into one of the largest communities on the popular Webs.com platform at that time. Since then, I've studied, grown and had the privilege of working with some amazing people over the years, including some fortune 500 companies!

If you need a custom plugin or application built, need help setting up or optimizing your server configuration, or are just in need of other general technical support, I'm here to help, just send me a message! My standard rate is $60/hour for all services.

Why choose me?

For application and plugin development, you will work with someone that has over 8 years of experience with the Invision Power Community suite. My plugins and applications maintain a high-standard when it comes to code quality, ensuring the code I write for you will remain maintainable for years to come.

For conversion services, I have handled database conversions for several large communities over the years (some with millions of members!) and have extensive experience in this area.

For Server Tuning and Systems Administration, you're looking at someone who has authored several performance tuning guides on the IPS community forums over the years, and whose Nginx configuration template has become the standard for almost every major IPS community out there. Aside from programming, working on server systems is one of my greatest passions.

I've personally built servers that handle million of pageviews and over 45TB of monthly data transfer with exceptional performance, and I can offer this expertise to you for a fair price!

I hired Makoto for a migration from VBulletin 5 to IPS. In the beginning all was ok but as the project progressed his communication towards me became basicly non-exisant. Because of this i lost confidence and decided to go with another developer.

Extremely pleased with the work and the speed at which it was completed. This was my first IPS4 development outsource and couldn't have been happier with the end result.

Highly recommend @Makoto

Did awesome work, went above and beyond, and the end product is both reasonably priced and works great.

This was my first foray into hiring someone specifically to build a custom IPS plugin, and I couldn't be happier. I look forward to using @Makoto for things in the future as well.

Can not recommend highly enough. Thank you.

This program is worth its weight in gold! We recently hired him for a job, and so far his mannerisms are excellent! He is clear and to the point - we will be hiring him on retainer for us -hopefully- as it is hard to find the quality this gentleman has.

Recommendation: Mr. Makoto is a wonder to work with, he is both professional and a scholar!

All in All: 5/5 stars! Great Service!

We hired Makoto to solve some performance issues we had after moving to a new VPS and upgrading to IPB4. He quickly started and solved the issues on time and on budget. 

If we need any help regarding IPB, server administration/tuning or app development Makoto would be the first we contact. Highly recommended!

Recently I found myself without my former tech-help guy, because I had let him go due to him becoming very busy with his real job.  So I was eager to get someone new to help with the occasional tech issue, upgrading, etc.  After studying some of the support threads in this forum, I noticed that Makoto was not only often helpful on the boards, but also detailed and thorough.  I contacted him and after a couple of back and forths, we agreed he could help me with my forum search situation.

I found Makoto to be very knowledgeable and quick to respond to requests and questions.  I was most impressed with how he was willing to briefly explain the how's and why's about the work he would do for me -- this is so helpful if you're like me who is not exactly an expert at IPS and server issues.  I felt very comfortable that Makoto knew his craft and could handle issues that presented themselves. 

I would definitely recommend this services to other forum admins.

Makoto is very helpful, and easy to work with!

I sent out requests to six different developers here in the provider directory and only Makoto answered in a timely manner, Four didn't answer at all, and one answered quite a bit later but i was already working with Makoto so it didn't matter.

Makoto was patient with me, and allowed me to respond on my own time. We are a company, and in the middle of several larger IT projects and some business projects so i was not always available to respond right away but Makoto never "jumped my case" about it, and always waited patiently. I bring this up, because in the past we have had a developer jump on to us and get some what angry for not responding "quick enough", this was before the provider directory existed however.

Very easy to work with, quick and prompt, the application worked flawlessly the first time and did exactly what we needed it to. I definitely recommend Makoto for any work you might need!

Makoto has helped me with a lot of things, when I request anything, nobody answers except him, he is so helpful, has experience and talented programmer. He is one of the best programmers I saw. I would like to see him in a higher position because he is helpful with everyone and replay immediately without letting anyone waiting. Highly recommended! Thanks, Makoto!
