PHP Development

I am an expert in modern PHP. Let me help you realise your project in concise and maintainable object orientated code.

Do you have a new PHP project? Need and exiting PHP site or application modified? I am fluent in PHP and can help you achieve your goals quickly, elegantly and at a competitive price. Not only that, but I guarantee my work for life!

I am familiar and skilled with all modern MVC frameworks and popular PHP libraries. Let me make make your project a reality using the latest and greatest tools the web has to offer.

Wordpress

As a WordPress specialist, I have the skills to turbo charge your WordPress site and really make it stand out from the crowd.

WordPress powers over 18% of the web and there’s a good reason for that! I can help you to maximise the potential of your WordPress site, transforming a mere blog into a professional and functional website or e-commerce platform that can be easily maintained by even the most avid technophobes,

Don’t rely on a free theme with some bolted-on plugins to achieve something ‘like’ what you want; let me build your vision exactly as you imagined it.

Already have a WordPress site that’s in need of a facelift? Need your site to do something but can’t find a plugin that quite covers it? Let me help!

I can harness the power of WordPress to develop bespoke functionality to give you the tools to realise the potential of your project.

Database Design

Be it MySQL or MS-SQL, I know how to harness whatever platform powers your databases; to deliver powerful and efficient web applications or enhance your CMS.

Many can be scared of delving into SQL, but in the right hands, SQL is a powerful and effective tool. A properly designed and optimised database combined with well formed queries, will increase your website or web application’s performance considerably and make complex tasks seem trivial.

If the data is in your database, I know how to get at it, and how to build you the tools you need to manage it. Let me work with you to build a database with tailored and effective reporting to make your data analysis fast, efficient and manageable and streamline your business processes.

HTML5

I specialise in clean, semantic, standards compliant, HTML5 development. Have confidence that the code behind your project will be as clean and beautiful, as its appearance out front.

I will take advantage of many modern HTML features such as native form validation and structured semantic elements, to allow your site to do more with less.

Well formed and semantic mark-up is not only easier to understand and maintain for us humans, but also makes more sense and has greater meaning to search engines and other online services that read your site, making it essential for modern SEO and syndication.

CSS3

I am fluent in the latest features of CSS. I can make your project stand out from the crowd in ways not previously possible.

Smooth and elegant cross-browser compliant animation, no problem! Text shadows, rotated or scaled elements or gradient backgrounds and fills, easy! The web has never looked so beautiful.

Previously, web designers have had to resort to using multiple images or complex JavaScript to achieve things that can now be done with a few simple lines of CSS. I will ensure your site uses the latest techniques, making it lighter, faster, easier to maintain or extend, and more impressive than ever!

I also use both LESS and SASS to super charge my CSS, This speeds up development, making my code more reusable and maintainable, resulting in it being easier to make changes whether narrow or sweeping, quickly and with ease.

JavaScript

Be it jQuery, Node, Backbone or good old Vanilla Javascript; I know how to utilise it to best effect in your project.

Modern JavaScript is a mighty tool in a web developer’s arsenal, bridging the gap between client and server with AJAX or enhancing a page’s interactivity or powering whole applications. Whatever the purpose, I know how best to get the job done.

Bootstrap

Everyone’s favourite framework, I can leverage Bootstrap to deliver a responsive, mobile first project on the web.

Bootstrap makes front-end web development faster and easier. It’s made for devices of all shapes, and projects of all sizes.

But Bootstrap is just a tool, it shouldn’t rule your design. Let me show you how to use it to create your own vision and stand out from the other Bootstrap sites out there, whilst loosing none of the benefits of its rock solid foundation.
