Freelance web developer
My approachable and jargon-free service is what companies, agencies, and individuals can expect when working with me. I go to great lengths to understand your requirements and offer suggestions on how to solve problems. My quick response times to emails and on-time delivery of work and projects are what clients love about working with me.
My background in web development started in the late nineties, where I spent my time building large applications from scratch. This was before the plethora of off-the-shelf systems we have today. Systems and languages I specialise in are Craft CMS, WordPress, and Laravel.
The workflow I implement with every project makes use of modern development technologies.
My Development Approach:
When embarking on any project, you need a plan. This can take the form of a functional specification, annotated PDF/designs, or a wireframe. Once this is in place, it becomes the core document upon which the project is completed against, on time and on budget.
To ensure a smooth development process for all, project management is handled through Trello, a very popular and easy-to-use tool for communicating all aspects of the project. At the start, the project will be broken down into milestones and remain on the list until approved by you.
Progress can be viewed from a public-facing site from one of my servers, available only to you and no one else. We welcome feedback throughout development as often as possible to ensure you are happy with the end result.
All project code is stored in GIT, our version control system. This means all ongoing development is accounted for, allowing for a smoother development process, reducing the risk of issues.
Benefits of Low Code Platforms:
Rapid Application Development: My development approach incorporates low-code principles, enabling rapid application development. This means quicker turnaround times for projects, allowing clients to respond promptly to changing requirements.
Reduced Development Costs: By leveraging low-code platforms and efficient development workflows, I ensure reduced development costs for clients. This approach allows for cost-effective solutions without compromising on the quality of the end product.
Increased Collaboration and Agility: My collaborative approach aligns well with the principles of low-code development. Clients actively participate in the development process, providing valuable input. The iterative nature of low-code development ensures quick adjustments and updates based on changing needs, fostering agility in project execution.
Benefits of WordPress:
User-Friendly WordPress is known for its user-friendly interface, making it easy for clients to manage their websites without extensive technical knowledge.
Extensive Plugin Ecosystem With a vast library of plugins, WordPress offers flexibility and scalability, allowing for the addition of various features and functionalities.
SEO-Friendly WordPress is inherently SEO-friendly, with features that make it easier for search engines to crawl and index content.
Benefits of Craft CMS:
Flexibility and Customisation Craft CMS provides a high level of flexibility and customisation, allowing developers to create tailored solutions for unique project requirements.
Content Modeling Craft CMS excels in content modeling, offering a structured approach to content creation and organisation, enhancing the overall content management experience.
Security Craft CMS prioritises security, with regular updates and features designed to protect websites from potential vulnerabilities.
