Profile: Dave Child

Skills: E-Commerce, PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Payment systems, Social Media, SEO and Linux. Specialist in Magento, MODX, Drupal and OpenCart.

I am a freelance web developer based in Brighton. I've been building websites since 1993 using a variety of technologies, but I now specialise in PHP.

I have worked with a variety of open source e-commerce and CMS platforms in the last few years, including Magento, MODX, Drupal and OpenCart. I have designed and developed custom themes, built custom modules for a variety of needs (including importing and exporting of data) and integrated websites with a host of third-party CRM, stock management and order fulfilment systems.

I have experience with hosting websites (including multi-server, load balanced setups running large e-commerce stores), and can advise on the best way to ensure your website will cope with increased traffic and orders. I can also assist with your online marketing efforts, by making your website more search engine friendly and advising on the best ways to get your site indexed quickly and thoroughly by the engines. I can help you with your link-building and social media efforts.

I have plenty of experience with back-end web development, including PHP, Python, Node.js, ASP.NET, XML, REST APIs, MySQL, SQL Server and SQLite; with development and deployment tools and technologies, including Linux, Apache, Nginx, SVN, Git, PHPUnit (and test-driven development) and Ant; and with front-end code, including HTML (and XHTML), CSS, JavaScript (and jQuery) and AJAX.
