What I do

I have more than 10 years' experience building software for clients all over the world. Below is a quick overview of my main technical skill sets and technologies I use. Want to find out more about my experience?

Vanilla JavaScript

I 😍 JavaScript. Having been using it for over 2 decades building websites from geocities to proof of concept web apps and everywhere in between.

Vue

Focusing on keeping things simple and the 3 main buckets of a webpage (HTML, CSS and JavaScript). Making the jump from jQuery to Vue was fairly easy and enjoyable. I like to write code that is easy to read, delete and refactor

Node.js

I jumped on the Node boat in 2012 having coming from PHP/CodeIgniter, I really enjoyed the flexibility of Express.js and how fast you can build a MVP or API in no time

HTML & CSS

The web was built on hypertext and always enjoy dropping down into the raw HTML or CSS of a website/application rather than something like PUG or Handlebars

Puppeteer

When Puppetter was announced I jumped head first, moving away from Nightmare.js. Building bots is something I have a passion for and just love scraping the web

Search Engine Optimization

Having got into blogging in 2005, I was always interested in SEO and continue to be focusing on Technical SEO as search has become so much in today's world

Raspberry Pi

What is not to love about a cheap single board computer. I have a Raspbery PI cluster on my desk and love them. Having worked with them and deployed them in a production setting, they are super powerful and great IoT devices
Golang

Golang

Although I love JavaScript, if speed and performance are your thing, GoLang is pretty amazing and becoming very popular
