Behind The Screens
Hello! I'm Adam, a Milton Keynes based freelance web developer and web enthusiast. I started developing websites as a side hobby, and quickly realised it's something I'm very passionate about.
I've worked for a number of design agencies in both lead and senior developer roles. I've lead teams of developers to help deliver some awesome websites for clients, whilst constantly being hands-on with development and keeping my skillset sharp.
Fun fact - I was also part of the winning Office Depot Hackathon 2017 team, where I developed a working barcode scanning iOS app in a day!
How I Work
I'm more than just a coder. I enjoy having early conversations to understand your requirements, and offer advice on how best to achieve the end solution from a technical perspective. I get strangely excited when talking about website architecture, and can go into full-on geek mode.
Never Compromise Quality
Designers and UX experts spend so much time and effort perfecting their designs. Most have a perfect vision of how the end product should look and feel. I want to share that vision, and I'm not finished until I get that all important nod of approval from the designer.
The Development Piece
Amazing websites are born when the skills of design, development, and user experience combine. Individually we are masters of our trade, but project perfection is only achieved when we collaborate. I'm the development piece of that puzzle.
I've spent years working as a senior and lead developer both in-agency and in-house in numerous roles. During that time I've helped many people develop their skillsets by sharing my expertise. I enjoy sharing my knowledge, and working with developers to build really cool websites.
If you'd prefer me to be working in your office, then that's fine. I love meeting new people and working together on websites. Having the ability for face-to-face chats makes communication so much easier for both of us. As an added benefit you'll get to enjoy my witty banter and quirky sense of humour.
Not a Robot
I'm not a robot, although I'd love to build an AI clone of myself! I strive to understand my audiences and communicate development solutions with people of all technical abilities. There's no benefit in talking a bunch of developer jargon if it's just going to overcomplicate matters.
My Spare Time
Software is constantly changing, and as a developer I invest so much time understanding the latest advancements. The rapid speed at which software changes is fascinating, and having the ability to leverage new technology is crucial to building future-proof websites.
By day I’m developing websites for clients, where I get to show off all these cool capabilities. But what most people don’t see, is what happens when I’m not developing websites. When I take Lola (my dog) for a walk, I’m listening to a podcast about web development. Whenever I can I’m looking for the next web conference to attend. I see web development as my hobby, and that I’m fortunate enough to make a living from it as well.
