Hi I’m Dave Sparks, a freelance web developer who specialises in projects for smaller clients or subcontracting as part of larger teams or agencies. I have a background in computer programming, holding a degree in Computer Science and Music Technology, and work both front and back end projects primarily with a php and MySQL focus.
I have previously worked in an agency environment but I have experience working for various company sizes from small start ups right up to large multinational companies. I have over 15 years experience working with websites and for the last 10 I have done this on a freelance basis whilst flying as an airline captain around Europe. Currently I work part time as a pilot and the rest of the time I bring that professionalism to my freelance projects. You can find out more about me or my work here or if you want you can download my CV from the links, or why not get in touch and see what we can do together?
I work principally with PHP and MySQL based projects covering any aspect within that realm. This includes working with existing setups, adapting off the shelf packages to meet project needs and creating new websites and platforms from scratch. I can also provide help and guidance in setup and management areas.
A large amount of time is spent working with WordPress and I can help you get setup and running with a new wordpress site using existing templates and functionality as well as extending that to creating custom themes and plugins.
I have experience with a large number of CMS platforms such as Statamic, Squarespace, Wix, Drupal and Expression Engine to name a few.
I often work subcontracting to firms and agencies filling in service and expertise gaps, providing consultancy and advice on projects and clearing work backlogs or allowing clients to manage busier periods without the commitment to a permanent hire.
