Web Developer, AWS Ops, Digital Designer
I am a senior web developer with 9 years experience in using the Symfony framework, currently working at Hardly Ever Worn It on their new platform. I also have briefly contributed to the Sylius open-source e-commerce platform, long before joining REISS where they were using it to rebuild their online store. I actually studied traditional architecture at the University of Greenwich, where these architectural studies gave me a structured and standardised approach to coding from the start. I transferred the strong focus on using industry standards and best practices from my architecture work to software. During my experience, I have found the most efficient and correct balance between clean code and meeting business requirements. I tend to cover all areas of web development, but my strongest areas of expertise are creating object-orientated PHP development and working with the Symfony components, and BDD with Behat and PhpSpec. I nearly always write code that is reusable or portable, with tests whenever suitable.
OOP using Domain-Driven Design; general system administration and setup of Linux web servers (CentOS and Ubuntu specifically).
Huge emphasis on documentation and keeping it up-to-date. Utilising Git tags for versioning and branches for project stability, adhering to coding standards and consistency.
Grunt, Gulp, Browserify; Compiling CSS with Sass; Backbone, CoffeeScript for app-like behaviour; Semantic HTML for SEO purposes, optimising static assets.
The reiss.com website was rebuilt from scratch, and launched with success on September 2016. The site now runs on the Sylius E-Commerce stack.
Clients include Archant, AstraZeneca, Clipper Ventures and Topshop
