8 years of experience building websites, using the latest HTML5 mark-up language, SASS/LESS CSS extension languages with responsive design in mind. I have been using JavaScript for the past 6 years, constantly learning new areas and improving my knowledge - currently learning AngularJS. WordPress is my favourite platform, I can almost literally make it dance if you want me to, adding Magento alongside it brings both fantastic content and shop management systems. Having studied OOP at the university and using PHP as part of my commercial experience, I can come up with great solutions to any problems efficiently. Both GIT and SVN version control tools have become my best friends over the years to securely store the code online as well as handle code deployment and a lot more!

Programming is one of the fields where experience matters and in order to become a better coder, it is important to code more and constantly improve my skills. I often look at solutions other developers have done which helps me to see the code from a different point of view and improve my skills.

HTML5
Used on almost daily basis, div tags, paragraph tags, image tags and many more alongside with classes and ids can now be found floating in my blood or within the source code of some of my dreams.

CSS3
Comes hand in hand with HTML, animations as well as drawing always excites me and presents a challenge to ensure efficient use of code.

JavaScript
These days JavaScript is an important addition to almost every project, whether it's a a simple jQuery toggleClass method, AngularJS or even Ajax to elegantly fetch data.

PHP
Although I consider myself as more of a front-end developer, PHP is something I have picked up on over the years and use it daily as well which helps me to constantly keep up with the latest trends and updates.

Magento
I understand the structure of Magento having successfully built many projects bringing my clients an exposure to online sales as well as visitors an opportunity to experience its strength.

WordPress
Great understanding of this platform enables me to offer fully customisable websites with a use of Advanced Custom Fields and other plugins, some of which I have previously built myself from scratch and tend to re-use.
WordPress
Opencart
A great light Magento substitute for smaller e-commerce projects which is very easy to use and customise as well, not to mention the great scalability of this platform or a selection of extensions available on the internet.

Objective C
Although I have only built one iPhone app yet, this language enabled me to extend my skillset beyond the usual web development area - currently still improving in my own time.

If you're still struggling to find answers to your questions, feel free to drop me a message or give me a call today!

Q
What is your daily / hourly rate?

My daily/hourly rates vary depending upon the type of work, its urgency and other factors, however start at £250+VAT per day and £30+VAT per hour. Unlike most developers, I do not round up to the nearest hour, instead, I round up to the nearest quarter of an hour which saves the client money, especially when it comes to completing smaller tasks. There are many ways to build a website, e.g. use of an existing template, therefore I always try to work within client’s budget to offer the best solution for what they can afford.

Q
How does the payment process work?

The project normally starts with a 30% upfront non-refundable deposit payment, followed up by 30% upon completion of the design stage and the remaining 40% is due upon successful completion of the project. Established clients might get the privilege of "work now, pay later" service. All my work also includes a warranty period of six weeks from handover.

Q
What is your availability?

Unfortunately, there are only 24 hours in a day, sometimes I might be able to change priorities but this is something to be agreed on - contact me today and ask, I'll be happy to assist if I can!

Q
We have an urgent project we need to complete as soon as possible, can you help?

Please send across the project brief and I'll see what I can do.

Q
Can we hire you for a longer period, e.g. 1 month?

Sure, providing that my schedule allows me to do this, I am also available to work on your projects both externally or in-house.

Q
What sets you apart from most Web developers?

I am a hard working individual, skilled in many different web technologies with a proven track record working with established businesses, start-ups or non-profit organizations.
I respond to your queries quickly and efficiently, straight to the point.
All websites are built using open-source tools, therefore my clients are not dependant upon me, a second developer could easily pick up the work and take over, if needed.
I always meet the deadlines and go the extra mile to ensure my clients are receiving the best possible service.
My rates are very reasonable, I round up to the nearest quarter of an hour.

Q
Can you show us samples of your work?

The samples of my work can be found within the Work section of my website.

Q
Do you offer web design services?

No, I personally don't, however I have a bunch of web designers I work with to whom I can refer you to.

Q
Who will own our website's content and code?

You will own 100% of your website providing that all payments are settled - both the content and the code.

Q
Even though we have limited funds, can you still work for us?

I am always happy to have the initial chat during which we can discuss your budget and see what we can agree on. I am unable to make any promises, this depends on my current availability as well as your deadline and other factors.

Q
How much does it cost to get a new website?

This is one of the questions I can't answer unless I have a full list of the client's requirements or a project brief available. The time it takes me to develop the website and thus the cost to do so depends on the complexity and your requirements, such as features, number of pages, amount of text and images, multimedia elements, etc. There are also web design fees to be considered as well as hosting charges.

Q
Why should we choose a freelancer instead of an agency?

There are some agencies which outsource their work to freelancers and charge astonishing fees only to pass on a small part of it to freelancers. You will also receive more personal attention without any distractions of internal politics or extra fees for commercial real estate lease, employee benefits, etc. I can work more efficiently as I am managing my own time and deciding on the most efficient approach. It is in my best interest to become loyal to your company and build a long lasting business relationship.
