What I do
I'm a freelance Drupal developer with over 12 years experience building Drupal websites. I'm a full-stack developer with comprehensive knowledge of both back-end site building and front-end theming techniques.
I work remotely from my home-office and am happy to work on distributed team projects. I enjoy the camaraderie and knowledge-sharing that come with Agile teamwork. On the other hand, as a remote worker I'm self-motivated and disciplined, so am equally content to work alone on smaller solo projects.
If you're looking for an experienced and dependable Drupal developer to build a new Drupal website, maintain an existing one, or join your distributed development team, contact me to get the ball rolling.
Migrate to Drupal 9
With Drupal 7 reaching end-of-life in November 2021 it's time to start planning the migration of your old sites to Drupal 9.
Migration from Drupal 7 will be the last BIG migration you'll have to do, because from now on all releases will be built on top of Drupal 8. Upgrading to Drupal 9 and subsequent versions will be a piece of cake in comparison.
I have successfully migrated a number of websites to Drupal 8 and have solid experience of the Migrate API. Migrations are not limited to older Drupal sites. I can also migrate content for a variety of data sources, including XML feeds, SQL databases, and CSV or JSON datasources. So if you are thinking of updating your old website, get in touch and tell me what you need.
I like to keep up-to-date with the latest best practices in Drupal development. My current toolkit includes:
- Back end:
- Paragraphs, Migrate API, Multilingual, Symfony framework, custom modules, theme preprocessing, Headless Drupal and Contenta CMS
- Front end:
- Twig, SCSS, Pattern Lab components, jQuery, Bootstrap, Flutter apps
- Configuration and build tools
- Composer, Drush, NPM, Gulp, PHPStorm, XDebug
- Teamwork and deployments
- Configuration management, Git workflows, Cloud platforms, Server configuration
