PHP Database Developer

Commercial level websites and web applications for businesses in the UK and Ireland.

A few questions I'm often asked ...

  • What do you do?
    I provide custom coding services using PHP, MySQL and Codeigniter ... but actually, it's so much more than that. I design and build online web applications to a commercial level. These applications are fully tested, fully supported and guaranteed.
  • Who do you do it for?
    I mostly work with companies that want me to develop an online application to enhance their business. I provide white-label web development services for agencies and designers. I have also been known to work with individual website owners.
  • What about HTML and CSS?
    To be a professional web developer these days, it's taken for granted that you have a good level of knowledge and skill with HTML, CSS, Javascript and a whole lot more.
  • What areas do you cover?
    I work from home in Northern Ireland but my clients are spread throughout the UK and Ireland with the majority focussed around Belfast and London.
  • How do you differ from other developers?
    I don't over-complicate things. I make things practical, functional and easy to use. I see an obstacle as a challenge. I don't confuse clients with technical jargon. I've been told that I am easy to work with.
  • Are you expensive?
    Not so much. I have hourly, daily and monthly rates to suit most budgets.

If you would like to know more, or if you have a project in hand that you'd like to discuss, please contact me, I'd love to hear from you.

Routing Incoming Email Through Your Website

Last year for a client, I setup a secure portal where Members login to access a feast of tools and features. One feature is the ability to email companies with whom they want to work. It's very easy to use and has been working successfully for a number of months.

Recently the client asked me to develop it further so that any replies, instead of going to the Member's own mailbox, would be processed by the system and routed to the Member within the secure portal.

I've been a web developer since 2001 and in that time I've never been asked to handle incoming mail. Outgoing, yes, all the time. But incoming, never.

I was duly excited by the prospect of building something new and fairly confident I would have it wrapped up quickly. Afterall, how hard could it be? Right?
