IT and Web Development

 

I have a wide range of skills and experience including project management and development for

  • web including e-commerce and content management systems
  • Word Press Sites
  • SItes for small businesses and freelancers
  • Sites for volutary groups
  • mobile devices
  • database systems
  • computer networks
  • communications systems.

I believe that that projects must be designed and implemented to suit the  needs of the client and users through discussion analysis, and collaboration. I have a clear-headed approach to this work and a philosophy that technology should not rule but aid projects. The most elegant high-tech approach is not necessarily the most appropriate one but with the right foundation and design, projects can be developed organically from simple beginnings as appropriate.

I pride myself on planning and completing realistic projects with realistic costings and realistic time scales. I believe in an honest approach to project management and not just saying what the client or end user wants to hear. I have experience of working with many other professions and I am always happy to draw in skills and resources where I do not have access to these directly or where the time-scale of the project demands it.

I take a hands on approach to projects, especially technology projects, I am happy to commission work from developers but will often take a pro-active approach to bringing systems on line – I feel it is important to

understand the systems that are being developed and that often means understanding how the code works.

I have worked with IT in the fields of housing, student administration, accreditation and, risk management and am currently working on projects in health, transport and student housing.
