About me

I am a hard working and self motivated full stack web developer with 10 years experience, based in Birmingham, UK.

My key skills are in JavaScript (Angular, AngularJS and Node.js), HTML5, CSS3, PHP, MongoDB and MySQL. I've also developed several hybrid apps for iOS and Android using the Ionic framework. Additionally I am experienced in deploying and scaling linux servers for high traffic volume websites.

Hire me

I am a highly experienced Javascript / Typescript developer, with an efficient work ethic, available for short to medium term remote contracting work.

Things I can help you with:

  • I can help with anything angular / angularjs related, including, but not limited to: component design and implementation, migration strategies from angularjs to angular, high level architectural planning and performance optimisations. I have been using angularjs since version 1.0 was released in 2012.
  • I am extremely proficient at building mobile apps with the ionic framework, and have shipped full blown apps from concept to production in just a few months.
  • I have a very deep knowledge of build tooling, especially webpack, and have frequently contributed back to its ecosystem of plugins and loaders. I can fine tune configuration to optimise build times, reduce bundle sizes to as small as possible, and demystify the inner workings to members of your team.
  • I have lots of experience configuring CI systems to automatically run tests on every build, and automatically deploy to beta and production environments.
  • I am a firm believer in writing robust and maintainable code. All of the code I write follows industry best practises, and is well tested.
  • I am extremely well versed in the Javascript language as a whole, aware of all of its strengths and weaknesses, and am up to date with using the latest esnext features. Consequently, I am very comfortable working on projects outside of the angular framework, such as in node or react.
  • Finally, I am very comfortable working to tight time scales by leading and managing teams to get a project over the line to completion. On the flip side, I am also very happy to work independently, or with a team, for someone else with a "no-ego" attitude.

For examples of the quality and quantity of my work, please checkout the numerous projects on my Github account.

If you haven't already, try setting the `fullTemplateTypeCheck: true` in your `angularCompilerOptions` when AoT compiling your @angular app. It already found a bug with our app today 😀
