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.

What I’ve been doing lately...

Tuesday, October 12, 2021

Not posted in a while, so what have I been up to? Well, apart from catching every cold going round… 🤧

  • Doing a lot of UI work on a wholesaler’s web-based CRM, involving complex relationships between head offices, regional offices, local stores and their respective users, all of whom need to see different product ranges and price options.
  • Working with the Microsoft Sharepoint API to transfer order-related files to the website server and show them to relevant agents and customers.
  • Adding a simple tool to an ecommerce site to allow them to quickly adjust the markup on an entire product range to react to a fluctuating economy.
  • Creating a WooCommerce plugin that lets the user select a different delivery date (from a range of valid dates the client can control) for each item in their basket, plus local delivery offered via a postcode-check.
  • Building an online calculator that uses a specialist API to provide instant car finance quotes with minimal details required.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon at a client’s production unit talking to their staff about their workflows and getting feedback on the order-management system I built for them. It’s so useful to speak directly to people using my software – even watching them use it – rather than only receiving feedback via a manager. They had some really good ideas to add new functions and I have a list of quick fixes that will speed up their day-to-day. My only regret is that I decided to fit in some exercise and walk from my flat to the client’s premises – four miles each way! Sore legs this morning!

🥵 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. ⚡️
