Single Page Applications
Web-based Application Development
A single page application is an app that runs on a server in the cloud. It is exactly the same concept as an application you would normally install on your Desktop Computer, Tablet or Phone. Instead, it's not hardware depended and compatible with almost any device that has a web browser. It also cost less to develop, compared to previous native based applications, because you do not have to develop an application for each operating system and it is only one application that needs to be maintained. Since it is built in the cloud it can talk to other applications or services, vice-versa.
Example Applications would be a custom CRM or any other type of Information Management System.
Examples of Companies who make use of Singles Page Applications are.: Facebook, Instagram, Uber, LinkedIn, PayPal, Groupon and many more.
Web-based Application via the WordPress REST API
Alternative example.: Customers wanting to move away from WordPress and its abundant use of plugin maintenance nightmare can first use this route to slowly migrate from WordPress to a separate independent cloud-based web app. In other words, the front-end of your new app can be developed in phase-one while you still make use of existing services and data available on WordPress. Then in phase-two, all your data and features can be redeveloped in a Node JS environment for example.
I have successfully developed, deployed, maintained and supported hundreds of e-Commerce stores since 2014. I have a crystal clear understanding and thousands of hours experience of what is involved in running a successful online store. I know exactly what is involved in the planning process, what specific plugins/features work together to create a seamless running online store that is always online, stable, fast, secure, mobile friendly and SEO optimized. If a feature is not available or an already available solutions does not quite cut it I can custom code a solution for you since I know that each business is unique to its own and has its own specific needs. I also have fair-priced-based retainers available for customers that want a piece-of-mind solution so that they can focus on what is most important to them and that is focusing on growing their businesses and have more free time available.
CMS - Content Management System
I develop, design, debug, fix, repair, optimize, maintain and provide support on CMS-based websites. I can also assist with migration from an old site to a brand new mobile-friendly, SEO optimized site. The websites I developed for my customers allows them to bring on their own changes, but I make sure that they have a perfectly stable foundation. This includes the selecting the correct theme framework + plugins that is well supported in the WordPress community. Theme frameworks & plugins that are not bloated. Also to make sure that any custom changes or code are kept separately in an isolated custom plugin(s) to minimize any compatibility problems down the line so that your site will always be updated save.

How I take on projects
- the short version
Consult, Understand, Strategize
I listen and dive into the context of your request to understand what it is exactly that you require. I also observe and make recommendations on what approach to take to complete a project for you. I make you aware of the risk of the current project and what steps we can take to avoid them, now and in the future. At the end of the day, I want to deliver a quality project that is 100% working.
Your solution is been crafted.
- The project has been researched to see what tools will fit the bill and the proof of concept has been tested.
- Planning of the project or task.
- Development(Coding/Programming) of the work.
- Rigorous testing is performed to deliver a working, quality project to you.
Delivery of the project.
Your working solution is delivered with a 30-day guarantee. I will deploy or implement the solution for you as required.
Optimization & Maintenance
After the project is delivered I will not be running for the hills. Every website, e-commerce store or custom project requires maintenance and optimization to keep on performing at peak performance. You will also find it comforting that support is a Skype, Phone Call or Email away.
I can take your old legacy application build on Delphi for example and rebuild it into a web-based application hosted in the cloud. Web-based applications that are not only scalable as your business grows but also mobile friendly and responsive. A web-based application does not suffer from hardware requirements like desktop-based applications. Web-based applications are on-demand based that is always available and working no matter what hardware you use.
Certified PHP developer with OOP and MVC experience. I also have experience with MySQL; setup database schemas and CRUD requests. I use PHP every day in developing custom solutions or performing modifications on WordPress or WooCommerce plugins, but I am not limited to the WordPress ecosystem and since most popular web-applications is built on this language I can shift between platforms or frameworks quite easily.
