Whether you want just one service or a range, I can offer whatever you need in PHP development and Linux system administration.

I work directly with individual clients and with design/development agencies. I’ll adapt to the way your agency prefers to work, whether that means speaking directly to your clients or leaving you to white label my services.

Below are the main services I offer, but if you need something slightly different, please give me a call to see if I can meet your needs.

Development

Do you need modifications to an existing system or a brand-new piece of software? I can offer both as a general development project, adapting my skills to the needs of your business.

My primary language is PHP, and I use MySQL/MariaDB/Percona as the database in the majority of projects, along with Git for version control.

Code review

Have you paid for a web application to be built but don’t have the technical knowledge to critically evaluate the work? I can offer an independent review of the code before or after it’s deployed. This will cover various aspects including security, compatibility with different versions of PHP, documentation and maintainability.

Consultancy

  • Need someone to review your hosting requirements?
  • Are you a design agency who’s been asked to undertake development work outside your area of expertise?
  • Are you looking to hire your first in-house developer?

I can provide you with help and advice as a consultant with all these issues and more.

System administration

Do you have servers that need maintaining, but can’t justify a full-time member of staff to look after them? For a monthly fee, I’ll take over the management of your servers, keeping the system software and other applications such as WordPress up to date. I work exclusively with Linux systems, using Ansible for configuration management and Git for version control.

Mentoring

If you employ your own junior/mid developers, they’ll need someone to mentor them in order to build them up to a senior role. The problem is that there might be no-one in your organisation with the time or the expertise to fulfil this role.

I’ll mentor your developers, offering them a space to discuss technical problems, conferences, career progression and more.

All of my services are charged on an hourly basis. Get in touch with me today to discuss how I can tailor any of the services I offer to your unique needs – because your website solutions should suit your business, not the other way round.
