When I took office, only high energy physicists had ever heard of what is called the Worldwide Web…. Now even my cat has its own page.

Custom programming for all web applications

Where possible I normally recommend an open-source web application – of the many available there is usually at least one that suits the client’s needs with minimal customisation. This gives the client a top-quality solution at the best possible price.

But sometimes the client’s specification is just so different to what’s available that this approach doesn’t make sense. For these few cases a complete custom-coded solution is the only answer.

Server-side programming is available in the popular open-source languages PHP and Perl, as well as bash shell scripting where appropriate. Client-side javascript and AJAX are used, plus modern markup using xHTML and CSS.

Past projects include these areas of expertise:

  • Custom CMS (content management systems)
  • Images generated on-the-fly from database or calculated data
  • Engineering and scientific online calculators
  • Custom backup solutions, dns controls and control panel integration
