Code reviews

If you’re starting your development journey, or you want a second opinon on code you or someone you’ve hired wrote, I’d be happy to be of service.

Development

Taking an idea and turning it into a reality shouldn’t be hard. I’ll help you take your new product or service from idea to implementation.

Customisation

Sometimes all you need is a little tweak or change to get exactly what you need. Feel free to contact me for all your customisation needs.

LEVERAGINg OPEN-SOURCE TECHNOLOGIES.

The power of open-source software lies in the collaborative development from multiple independent sources. Open-source software generates an increasingly more diverse scope of design perspective than any one person or company is capable of developing and sustaining long term.

WordPress

Used by 30% of the top 10 million websites (as of January 2018), WordPress is the most popular website management (or blogging) system in use on the Web, powering more than 60 million websites worldwide.

Laravel

Laravel is a free, open-source, PHP web framework, intended for the development of modern web applications. Laravel is regarded as one of the most popular PHP frameworks.

A Personal Touch.

My approach to problem solving and software development:

  • I will never stop learning but I will be aware of my own limitations.
  • I will build my business sustainably through passionate and loyal customers.
  • I will never pass up an opportunity to help out a colleague, and I’ll remember the days before I knew everything.
  • I will communicate with my clients as much as possible, because it’s the oxygen of a successful relationship.
  • Given enough time and resouces, there is no problem that I cannot solve.
