and welcome to my online digital playground
I currently specialise and focus on PHP development and hold various specialist CIW certifications in Web Development. I am a programmer with a rarity; the benefit of a personality and only a healthy amount of ego. As this is my personal site, I have been known to experiment from time to time so things here could promptly change!. I tend to be quite keen to try and grasp new technologies quickly.
PHP scripting currently is where my speciality lies and I have some experience with MVC principles and a custom PHP in-house framework. In addition I am learning to be happy at the Linux CLI and have some very basic knowledge of both the Magento and WordPress frameworks, although I have more insight in to and prefer the latter.
Search Engine Optimisation
I have a keen interest and some knowledge of SEO techniques, using on and off-site practices, in order to yield and maintain results through organic search. I always try to make my websites search engine friendly, with good quality semantic copy and without employing any black hat tactics.
What I'm up to
I'm out there currently roaming Manchester for a fantastic new PHP role!. You can contact me or connect with me over on LinkedIn if you have any suggestions.
