Frontend Web Development

A frontend web developer is concerned with the practise of developing the aspect of website code that is delivered to, and runs on the “client-side” (i.e. in the user’s web browser).

As an experienced frontend web developer I am well versed in all the modern technologies that form an integral part of responsive web design, and am skilled in producing the HTML, CSS and JavaScript for a website that a user can see and interact with directly. My toolset includes: HTML5, CSS3, JQuery, JavaScript, AJAX, SEO, Bootstrap, Structured Data, W3C Standards, Grunt, Minification tools.

Backend Web Development

My backend skills are primarily as a PHP / MySQL developer, though I have worked extensively with Microsoft .NET languages (C# and VB.NET) and SQL Server in the past, and I’ve also developed applications in Ruby on Rails and other database platforms (PostgreSQL).

I studied software engineering as part of my Masters degree in Electronic Engineering at York University, and am familiar with modern software design methodologies including Object Oriented (OO) programming, MVC, Agile, and Test Driven Development TDD.
