Software development

(Note – this page could really use some updating…)

Iโ€™ve been doing this for a looooong time – with over 40 years of experience ๐Ÿ˜‰

Some of the things I can help you with include:

  • Custom web sites and web apps – Using state of the art technologies such as PHP, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, AJAX, React and Twitter Bootstrap, I can develop your fully responsive, public-facing web site or web app from the ground up.
  • APIs – Need to create your own API or access (consume) someone elseโ€™s? I can tailor a solution to suit your requirements. I have extensive exposure to many available APIs, and have also developed many services for clients.
  • Bespoke business systems – I can develop a wide range of business systems, tailored specifically for your needs.
  • WordPress โ€“ arguably the best CMS (Content Management System) and blogging platform available today. I can handle all aspects of your WordPress instance, including templates, plugins, widgets, as well as theme development and customisation.
  • eCommerce โ€“ Sell your product/s online.
  • Mobile app development.
  • MythTV / Kodi / Plex โ€“ Your complete, in-home media solution.
  • Bespoke real time, bi-directional WebSockets based messaging / signalling platform development.
  • Linux / LAMP stacks, etc โ€“ The glue that holds it all together.
  • Much, much more ๐Ÿ™‚

I have worked with GNU/Linux (mostly Debian and derivatives, as well as Arch Linux) systems for well over 25 years, including Apache, qmail, Postfix, Courier, Dovecot, IPTables, UFW, routing, traffic conditioning, MySQL / MariaDB, XMPP (Jabber), djbdns, etc.

Iโ€™ve built two ITSP (Internet Telephone Service Provider โ€“ think VoIP) systems / businesses from the ground up โ€“ both based on Asterisk, with full customer / management web interfaces, billing systems and all the bells and whistles associated with business-level phone systems (call queues, IVR, etc). Iโ€™ve replaced several old analogue PBXs with totally digital systems.

Iโ€™ve dabbled in low latency digital audio for over twenty years (think performing and recording โ€“ I’m an ex / sometimes musician) and, for about the last ten years, media systems / networks โ€“ mainly MythTV (and now Kodi).
