Hi, my name is Vance Lucas, and I ♥ the web

Web, Mobile & API Developer, Entreprenuer, Full-Time Freelancer

I am a web and mobile developer living in Oklahoma City. I created my first website at the age of 12 and have been focused on web development ever since. I code primarily using PHP, JavaScript, and Ruby, and have released many popular open-source projects. I am heavily involved in the community, and help to run the OKC.js user group and put on the Thunder Plains developer conference. I am an international conference speaker, and have a lot of experience all over the place in code - backend, frontend, mobile, APIs, testing, deployment, and more. I love solving hard problems. Let me know if I can help you with yours.

There's a Book For That — or at least there will be soon
