“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for a website, I can tell you I don’t build ordinary websites. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired from working in the web industry with a first class honours degree.”
Hi - I’m George, a web developer from
sunny Bournemouth, Dorset. I’m a web developer, but I don’t just design & build websites - I solve problems using the web.
As a web developer, I specialise in the planning and development of bespoke web applications and content management systems. I primarily work in object oriented PHP / MySQL - using an un-bloated, robust, flexible framework that I’ve developed myself over time. I know exactly what every line of my code is doing, and more importantly how and why it’s doing it.
That said, I also work with WordPress - developing bespoke plugins and coding custom themes. I’ve also been known to dabble with front end technologies & techniques too - building interfaces and small JavaSscript tools. I have some design sense, but prefer to leave heavy design work to a designer.
I graduated from university in 2012 and was awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science with First Class Honours in Web Development. Areas of study included PHP development, database administration, usability and networking. For my dissertation I developed a project management system for small web agencies - the implementation and final report were both marked at 92%, and I achieved an overall mark of 88%.
I currently work for Yammayap - a design led web development agency based in Bournemouth. I’m primarily responsible for our bespoke development projects, but also develop WordPress based sites too. I work with a variety of clients including international software companies, local authority organisations & schools, exciting new startups and local businesses.
I also freelance. I am available for PHP, WordPress or front end web development projects and can provide examples of previous work upon request. Please email me if you have a project that you would like to discuss.
When I’m not coding, you’ll find me listening to music, cycling in the New Forest, drooling in the Apple Store or relaxing on one of the nearby beaches / quaysides with a pint of Best from Ringwood Brewery.
That’s all for now, but want to know more? Fork me on GitHub, follow me on Twitter, see my photos on Flickr or drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
