I am a professional web developer with a keen eye for modern web development, design and programming. Over the years I worked for a number of small, medium and large companies not to mention a great deal of individual entrepreneurs.
The main focus of my work is helping my clients present themselves online in the most appropriate fassion to suit their needs. My work does not simply stop with creating website solutions as I also have a solid understanding of many key design and programming concepts, with over twelve years experience on the web, developing projects from basic websites to complex and well planned applications. All my clients has access to my online project management software and software debug system for larger projects.
I have worked on many complex projects including writing software to scrape data from different websites, writing optimised mysql databases and queries, multi - server memory sharing and caching applications, data merging scripts, spell checkers and some very large dynamic websites; many of which are based on Wordpress with heavy customisation (without actually modifying any core functionality of the system). I have worked with Joomla in the past although I find the system very slow and heavy to work with, hence why I primarily chose to work with wordpress when developing websites quickly.
I work constantly with web designers, converting Photoshop designs into fully functional and cross browser compliant CSS and XHTML layouts. I generally create a layout by manually coding as this gives me complete control over the page functionality; typically 4 hours work to build a fairly complex layout...although we all know how much of a pain Internet Explorer can be, I have worked to overcome many issues faced with the browser including the ability to enable some CSS 3 features which the browser does not (still) currently natively support.
I enjoy problem solving in my work and have a keen eye for code and finding and solving issues. My skills and experience are not limited, I love to learn new things and welcome a challenge. My day to day experience includes the following areas:
XHTML (Mostly I work in Transitional)
Advanced PHP including OOP and MVC
Smarty Template Engine
Most open source forum scripts including PHPBB
Experience coding with security in mind to prevent such attacks as MySql injection and XSS (Cross-Site Scripting).
All of my code is well structured, commented, optimised for speed, reliability, security and open to future expansion.
