Now available to take on new projects / outsourced agency work from 11th January 2016.
Emma is a highly motivated and skilled programmer with commercial experience in modern web technologies, server administration and continuous integration. Whilst working for many direct clients and agencies, she has been fortunate enough to contribute work to a number of national and international organisations including:
The tasks completed for her most recent project (as the lead developer for a Drupal 7 site) perfectly sums up her experience and knowledge in Drupal 7 Backend Development, Frontend Development and Server Side Work including System Administration, Continuous Integration and Shell Scripting.
Emma is proficient with version control systems such as Git and SVN, and also has experience in some Other Technologies including Wordpress Plugin Development.
Throughout all Drupal custom module development, the following tools are used to ensure the solutions developed match the acceptance critera, are efficient and adhere to the Drupal coding standards:
Emma has been working as an independent contractor on development of our website for more than three years.
Working with Emma has been a blessing. She's been one of the most helpful, hard-working, reliable and dedicated people I've had the pleasure of working with. Although she is an outside contractor, working remotely, we've always felt that she's part of the team. That's down to the fact that she's an excellent communicator, always available to talk and discuss issues. She is also great at making all planning and progress is carefully documented, to avoid confusion and to allow a clear understanding of the work that's she's doing and is planning to do.
I've always found Emma to be flexible and understanding. She's often put in extra work to get us through some tight deadlines and I'm truly sorry that we're not able to work with her any more. The only reason we're moving on is to get a total rebuild from a new developer using a different CMS platform, rather than maintaining and developing our existing site which Emma did an exemplary job helping us with.
Emma is a talented and hard-working developer. With a can-do attitude, and dedication and determination to achieving the best outcome to the project I worked with her on, her ability to identify and suggest solutions to technical challenges made Emma a joy to work with.
We hired Emma to work on some backend projects for the WorldSeaFishing.com web site. We required detailed work to be conducted on the system administration side in terms of writing bash scripts to automate backups as well as tuning our servers. Emma also helped us completely rewrite our htaccess rules when we changed our site architecture.
Emma has also worked on both our Wordpress and Xenforo applications. Writing a comprehensive bulk updating tool in PHP for tens of thousands of articles which allows us to rapidly change content when required. Emma also worked on some advanced PHP and add-on development for the Xenforo Forum Platform.
As well as working on our principle sites, Emma has also helped us with the development of outside projects for our marketing clients across both Drupal and Wordpress platforms.
Emma is a practical, diligent and punctual freelancer who works on initiative and can complete projects on time and with minimum input from us.
