Hi, I'm Matthew. Nice to meet you!
I'm a software engineer who develops web-based applications and services, specialising in PHP & security. If you need someone who knows how to write high quality, reliable, and secure code in PHP — you’ve come to the right place.
Hey, I’m Matt. I’ll get straight to the point. You’re short on time, but still need to find someone whom you can trust to augment your existing team, pick up and finish an application that’s partially complete, or turn your idea into a working, deployed, application.
That’s no small task. Right? However, you want to focus on your business and build it into what you know it can be, but you know that you need someone with the technical chops to help you do that.
That’s where I come in. I’ve been designing and developing web-based applications — as well as writing about them and documenting them — since 1999 (I’m not that old). In that time, I’ve built professional skills in designing and developing PHP-based applications that adhere to clean code principles, are well tested, and place a strong emphasis on security too.
What’s this mean for you? It means that, regardless of whether you want to augment your existing team, need someone to finish an application that’s partially complete, or turn your idea into a working, deployed, application, you can trust me to look after you, and get it done.
Sound like a great partnership? Get in touch and let's talk.
