Allejo Chris Velarder

Lead Software Engineer

Chris is the lead developer here at Chromedia. To him, complex codes and syntax flows are like conversational English. With over ten years of professional experience in developing digital tools and innovating poorly built websites, Chris has a rock-solid foundation of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL. His specialties also include business applications, software documentation, end-user documentation, system analysis consulting, backend development, and mobile applications.

He is a certified expert in various technological proficiencies, and is the most tactical, pragmatic, and straightforward person. To us, he is also someone to rely on, a good drinking buddy, and a source of laughter.

Why he loves what he does

Chris has always been a keen user of computers and interested in all aspects of them. No matter how cliché it sounds, Chris finds fulfillment in being able to create efficient systems. He loves computers and coding and all that stuff, so what can you expect? To him, web applications and web programming languages are like crossword puzzles. So, he enjoys turning flat designs into fully interactive websites that work on a range of browsers and mobile devices. He is also the driving force behind our development team, directing our operations and building strong relationships with our clients.

“Correction does much, but encouragement does more.”
