That's me

Experience

I have spent almost 10 years developing and maintaining web sites and online applications, covering all aspects such as analysis, design, programming and post maintenence.
I currently work freelance in several different ongoing and one-off projects, balancing my time between children and work.

What’s in a web?

Nowadays web sites are not just a collection of static html pages.  Rather, a modern web site is dynamic, using databases and administration paneles (CMS), to allow the contents to change quickly in accordance to the clients needs.

Each clients needs are specific so I work with my customers to create taylor made web sites and aplications that exactly fit their needs.
By means of a simple control panel, the client can manage the website contents at any time without having to contact me for every minor change.
For example, news items can be added or photos can be uploaded according to the specifications of each case.

Technology

To achieve this and so as to create a comfortable user experience I use technologies such as:
PHP, MYSQL, html, css, AJAX, javascript and, if needed use the latest javascript libraries such as Mootools or Jquery.

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)

Asides from creating accesible websites, I also optimise the webs as much as possible for the search engines such as Google and Yahoo.

Despite common belief this is not something that can be “done later”, rather it is best to be planned and programmed into the code as the site is developed.

What else?

If you have browsed around my personal website, you will have seen that I have several personal projects such as my availability calendar script and other code snippets.

What’s next?

If you are interested in contracting me, be it for complete web or application development or for help debugging specific scripts, you can contact me via my contact form.

Alternatively you can use my forum for discussion and help with calendar or general scripting problems.
