What kinds of web development consultations or services does Maria provide?Q.
Perhaps you don't know what stack you should use for your application or site. Perhaps you don't know which DevTools to use or how to integrate them into your application. Perhaps you don't know how you should go about structuring it. Perhaps you are stuck on an issue in your web site or application you can't solve, and perhaps don't have the time to focus on it. Perhaps you need site or application maintenance, updating, or refactoring. Perhaps you just need to have something built! Or perhaps you need to acquaint yourself with your computer's operating system (OS) or computer in general (current OS: macOS Monterey). And so on.A.
