I am a freelance web developer working from home in Bournemouth, on the south coast of England.

My speciality is mainly back-end coding using PHP and MySQL etc – the techie stuff that makes your website work the way you want it to, and which people don’t even notice until it goes wrong!

I have worked with the JShop eCommerce system for many years, and although it is no longer supported or updated by the publishers I have continued to develop the code myself and have it working reliably on current PHP versions (including PHP 7). I have also made numerous modifications and additions to the system to suit clients’ specific requirements.

I have coded and built website systems from the ground up to suit specific requirements. However for future requirements I would probably look to build on an existing system as there is so much more available now than there was a few years ago.

I have some experience of WordPress (this website uses WordPress) but there are loads of developers using that and it isn’t really my area. However if you want something built on WordPress do please contact me and I can put you in touch with the right people.

For front-end design (the pretty stuff that visitors see) I normally work with other designers and developers who specialise in that aspect, and between us we can create exactly what you want.
