If there is a service you require which isn’t listed here, please feel free to contact me as I may be able to put you in touch with someone who can help. I run a network of freelancers and contractors with experience in Drupal, WordPress, Symfony, Laravel and Zend Expressive.

I’m happy to work with design/development agencies and can either speak directly to your clients or stay in the background, whichever you prefer.

Development

I work on general development projects, whether you require modifications to an existing system or a new piece of software. My primary language is PHP and I use MySQL/MariaDB/Percona as the database backend 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 code before or after it is deployed, covering aspects including security, compatibility with different¬†versions of PHP, documentation and maintainability.

Consultancy

Need someone to come in and review your infrastructure requirements? Are you a design agency who has been asked to undertake some significant development work which is outside your area of expertise? I can provide you with help and advice as a consultant.

System administration

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

I can also assist with server migration and train staff on configuration management and version control if you prefer to keep system administration in-house.

Mentoring

If you have junior/mid developers who you would like to gradually build up to a senior role, I can act as a mentor. Your developers can discuss technical problems, conferences, career progression and more with me over the phone, Skype or Google Hangouts.

Hosting and Domains

Due to the amount of work involved, I no longer offer domain registration, email or web hosting for new clients. If you would like to purchase these services, or if you are unsure of your hosting requirements, I can recommend an appropriate package from one of the providers I use.
