    Junior Developer - December 2013 - Current

    I've been working within the Technical Team as a Junior Developer, working alongside the Teachnical Team Leader who is also the Lead Developer and also with an Intermediate Developer. I work mostly on the front-end development side of things using HTML5/CSS3 for website customisation, whilest also at times dabbing into PHP, JavaScript/JQuery. Being a keen learner in web technology, I've been learning off the more experianced developers picking up PHP, JavaScript/Jquery as I go along. I also have a good understanding of many open-source content management systems. However, day-to-day mostly consists of the following.



    Building Email Newsletters and Promotional templates based on the Graphic Designer designs, coding the emails to meet many of the most popular email client standards, including mobile optimisation. Coding and creation of bespoke landing pages for many different types of marketing campaigns, again following the Graphic Designer designs. Using Photoshop to pull out or to slightly modify any graphics if needed. Editing our Facebook Applications using PHP. Due to an on-going competition we have on our Facebook page, as it needs code changes aswell as MySQL database changes every month. Website builds for both Desktop and Mobile devices along with website testing in all major browsers and on mobile devices. Mobile Websites and Applications. General Website Maintenance and Updates. Wordpress Customisation.

    Interests

    iOS Mobile App and Game Development

    I've only recently started to get into iOS App Development to create small games and applications for the iPhone and iPad which is fun. With a few apps in development, which I hope to submit to the App Store within the next couple of months!

    PC and Console Gaming

    Big gamer geek! Previously an Xbox Nut, recently converted PS4 Fanboy! However, PC Gaming is and has always been my number one choice with the ability of custom built gaming PC's to put gaming to a whole new level. I used to have a gaming site (onegamer.co.uk) which is still up but very inactive for the last couple of months due to a new revisioned version in development to simplify the design and content presentation.

    Affiliate Marketing & Web Development

    Just like in work, outside of work I always have many little personal side projects on the go, with 5 currently in development. Most of the sites are small niche Affiliate Marketing sites. With a couple un-related to Affiliate Marketing, but are just personal web applications.

    Movies and TV Shows

    Everyone loves Movies and TV Shows and I'm no exception! Got to love the odd bit of entertainment when just chilling out! I have also tryied reading books. However, I'm still learning to read so for now, it's taken a back seat..

    Sports and Fitness

    When I'm not digging into that quarter pounder cheese burger from McDonald’s, or the huge slimly pizza from Dominoes or even that tasty chicken from KFC, I actually do fitness! I enjoy mostly every sport, with a few exceptions. But to keep in shape (or try to) I do weight training and go for the casual run everyday almost!

    Socialising with Friends

    Just like most normal people... I like socializing with Friends and Family, whether it's to go our for a drink or just anything which is fun!
