About plusEquals

Clayton G. Ousley

CEO / Founder, Developer, Designer, Analyst

Hello, and welcome to plusEquals! plusEquals (formerly "Ousley Consulting") is a consulting firm I founded in 2009.

Ousley Consulting originally focused on Business Analysis and Development. In 2015, I expanded my offerings to include full-stack web development and design.

To highlight my new offerings, I renamed my company "plusEquals," which is a computer programming term which means:

"to take something of value, add value to it, and give it back."

I accomplish this by bringing a unique blend of business development, research and analysis, and technical skills to everything I do.

An overview of my experience and offerings.

Web Development

I am a full-stack web developer with seven years of experience in web development and design. I built websites for BI Worldwide, Ford, GM, ExxonMobil, Toyota, Navistar, Webasto, Notre Dame College, Discovery Solutions, Inc., and completed a full-stack shopping cart application with Paypal REST API integration for Savons Michele. I also developed a JavaScript userscript for ADP while serving as a Technical Controls Specialist.

I know HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, (with JavaScript ratings above the global average), Sass, AJAX, mobile/responsive technologies like Bootstrap, FlexBox, and media queries.

I have competency in Angular.js, React, RESTful APIs, PHP, MySQL, SCORM versions 1.2 and 2004, WAI-ARIA (accessibility), Git/Git push-to-deploy, security, WordPress, Adobe Muse, and Business Catalyst.

I also work with templating engines like Handlebars.js, and develop full stack with MVC, Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB, and Mongoose.

I am passionate about free and open source software solutions, and have used Linux as my personal Kernel for five years (but on-and-off since 2007). I administer my own servers, domains, firewalls, malware scans, and SSL Certificates.

Business Consulting

What started as an extra-credit project for my 2009 Business Intelligence class grew into my own small business!

For the project, I offered to write a SWOT report - which analyzes a business' Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats - for a local goat milk soap business. What began as a kitchen operation has now expanded to four stores, with operations in two states, with orders coming from across the USA!

I've worked with other businesses as well - ranging from jewelry makers to organic tea blenders.

Research and Analysis

In 2012, I graduated with my BA in History and Intelligence Studies from Notre Dame College's Center for Intelligence Studies.

Making the Dean's list more times than not, I completed courses in Arabic (four semesters), Middle Eastern studies, geo-politics, national security studies, counterterrorism, international law, advanced structured analytics, writing for the Intelligence Community, methods of financial investigation, statistics, sociology, and a long list of history courses.

My Senior Research Project covered "Operation Fortitude South," the deception operation that protected the Normandy invasions. I also completed my first seminar of Norwich University's Master of Arts in Military History program.
