I've been building for the web since I was a teenager and have over a decade of experience -- but you never stop learning in this industry! I'm most often found working with PHP, a language on which multiple high-traffic sites I've managed are built upon, but I have experience and proficiency in a wide-range of technical areas, from server management to cryptocurrency programming. I'm enthusiastic about good quality code, user-experience, and helping people where possible.
- 10 years experience
I have 10 years of experience coding in PHP and still work with it daily. During this time I've worked on several high-traffic projects that have given me the opportunity to work with multiple frameworks including Laravel, Zend Framework, Symfony, Codeignitier and more. I'm currently the CTO of a new startup making use of PHP7 and Laravel. I try my best to push PSR standards where I can, and am a regular attendee of PHP usergroups.
Search engine optimization
- 6 years experience
I have extensive experience of Search Engine Optimization for websites that depend almost solely on its success. My practices are predominantly white-hat, as it is generally the best solution for those with a long-term perspective, but I believe you have to be knowledgeable in all aspects to have perspective on what you are competing against. I keep a keen-eye on Google's algorithm changes and current trends in the SEO area.
- 5 years experience
I have extensive experience of web scraping, and have seeded many websites' databases, some of which are updated on a regular basis, and I have built websites where live price comparison depended on a reliable service.
- 3 years experience
I have interviewed many dozens of candidates in my previous job, and so am confident in my ability to provide relevant feedback from the perspective of an employer. I was most-often interviewing for PHP-based roles but SEO based interviews were often common. I am happy to provide mock interviews.
- 5 years experience
My knowledge of git comes from trial by fire, and my appreciation comes from the amount of times its use has saved the day, and for the time it saves. it is a great set up from using FTP to transfer files, and would be happy to help anyone who is looking to get started with it, who is creating a workflow involving push to deploy, or who has configuration issues.
