Hello,

About Me

Want a freelancer that doesn't suck? I won't give you the run around, or promise something I cant. In fact, i'll be straight up front and let you know i'm not the right fit for the job, and i'll try to recommend someone who is. If I start and can't finish, I won't charge you.

I’m a 27 year old Full Stack Developer from Long Island, New York. I have been programming for more than a decade, and hold a Bachelors of Science in Computer Programming and Information Systems from SUNY Farmingdale University. I specialize in large scale web applications using popular frameworks which follow PSR-2 Coding Standards and SOLID principals, as well as front-end responsive design and other popular systems. Feel free to contact me if you are looking to have work of any size done.

You can also get here from rappa.work!

Testimonials

"Very knowledgable, friendly and professional and has good ability to understand the business problems we're trying to solve."
- Scott Moser



"Finding a qualified and reliable development resource to build out highly conceptualized designs is often a difficult task. Finding a developer that meets the standards of what you're visually looking for while also providing quality code is a stressful and time consuming process. Working with Anthony the past few years has eased these concerns and allowed me to focus my time back on effectively managing a business. In addition to the quality of his work, Anthony is highly responsive, efficient and always professional to deal with. It's been a great business relationship that I look forward to continuing."
- Jeff Brandi



"I had the pleasure of working with Anthony Rappa (rappasoft) on a project that I needed his help and expertise with. I just wanted to say that Anthony is a true professional and is very skilled in what he does. He was very accommodating when it came to what was requested and what needed to be done. Communication back and forth was timely and his work was spot on. He was not happy unless I was happy, so would finish what needed to be done, before his he considered his work to be complete. I would not hesitate in recommending Anthony to anyone and I look forward to the next time I work with him."
