As an experienced Web Developer, I have the technical skills and abilities to help your company achieve its targets. Colleagues and customers will be impressed with excellent communication and project managements skills to form effective relationships and ensure the successful maintenance, development and delivery of technological solutions. I work with both front and back end technologies, with a slight preference for front end. Either way, I'm happy to get my hands dirty, whatever the technological scenario.
I have worked closely with graphic designers on a number of projects and feel very comfortable with translating their Illustrator/Photoshop designs into web pages that are not only functional, but well structured for others to easily work with.
I've worked primarily with .NET MVC, but also have experience with Backbone.JS and would relish the opportunity to work with React or Angular based projects.
Separation of concerns is paramount in building better products for the customer so my preference is always to build projects that follow the principles of onion layer or n-tier based architecture.
I've recently been enjoying developing Rest based services using Microsoft's WebAPI. The possibilities of these when it comes to plugging in custom front ends is almost limitless. It's also opened up the ability to have a common library for both desktop and mobile based technology, the latter of which is only gaining more momentum in the public domain.
When it comes to databases, with my background in data analysis and primarily MS SQL Server, I am comfortable with ensuring a company's data integrity.
Having entered the world of Content Management Systems back in 2015, I can safely say that for certain clients, a CMS is definitely the way forward for making regular updates to a website's content. Umbraco has been my favoured choice and I can only see it becoming more and more popular in the .NET domain of content management systems. A lot of freedom for the developer and for a full stack developer like myself, I am able to utilise it's powers to maximum effect.
