Alex is one of the most organised developers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. As a designer, it was refreshing to see him always working as part of a team, keenly trying to work out challenges and solutions with a website even from its early stages. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex.

🥵 Whew! What a week!

Aside from desperately trying to stay cool, I’ve been very busy with a variety of projects:

  • Integrating an online store’s customer database with Microsoft Dynamics 365.
  • Building a custom framework for interactive tables to allow bulk editing of logistical data.
  • Adding Apple Pay and Google Pay functionality to a WooCommerce site.
  • Updating a store’s price list from a spreadsheet using a bespoke import script.
  • Compiling daily statistics from a CSV file into an interactive report with JavaScript-powered graphs.

I had last week off to watch the Euros ⚽️ but it’s been a busy return. Not only have I booked in three new projects for July, yesterday I had my first in-person meeting since the pandemic started. Typically, I was 20 minutes late because of traffic – some things never change!

I don’t get to link to my work very often because most of it is mysterious backend meddling that the public never sees, but I’m very happy to be able to share the new Edays website that I’ve been working on for the last two months. Really pleased with how fast the site is and the way the content has come together with the bespoke page-builder I created for this project. ⚡️

I’ve been extremely busy for the last few weeks on a big website rebuild, but the finish line is now in sight! 🏁 90% of the template work is complete and my client has got most of their content populated, so we’re now in the part of the project where everyone is making spreadsheets of the bits and pieces still to be done so they don’t forget!

This week I’m using Advanced Custom Fields to create a bespoke page-builder for my big WordPress project. I’m leaning on the ‘clone’ functionality and nested template parts to make it super modular, rather the bunging everything into one sprawling repeater field as I’ve seen on other sites. I think too often developers try to make page-builders cover every possibility under the sun, but my aim is to carefully construct a small but versatile range of reusable blocks that always adhere to the client’s brand guidelines, letting them focus on messaging instead of design whenever they add a new page.
