Skilled in both Front-end and Back-end web development with the primary focus of modern technologies such as Vue.js and Laravel

Backend PHP Development

An expert in object-oriented PHP development, building bespoke client applications to suit their business needs. Efficiency and speed is top priority whilst still maintaining stellar functionality that wholly meets the specification agreed.

My key areas of expertise are interfacing with various APIs and EPOS systems and delivering automated business logic that runs efficiently to help my clients do what they do best, sell online.

Though, don't just take my word for it. Performance speaks for itself.

Frontend Development

I have over 10 years experience in developing front-end application code and have continously evolved my learning by being at the forefront of emerging technologies resulting in beautiful responsive experiences for the end user.

With Performance and Search Engine Optimisation at the core of every website and paramount to a websites success, everything I develop is built with this in mind from the onset.

Vue.js is my tool of choice as it allows fully interactive applications to be developed rapidly for the modern age. I'm also well versed with other Javascript libraries and frameworks such as jQuery, but would recommend the modern approach for anything new going forward.
