Web Development in Brighton - Expert Bespoke Website Development

Sometimes the best solution is a site built just for your business. You get to control how it works, how it looks and you own the code.

Sometimes, your needs just can't be met with an existing product or open source project. When that happens, it's time to look into having something built just for you, and I can help!

Why Go Bespoke?

  • Highly Specific. The system you end up with will be built just to solve your problems.
  • Full Ownership. You own the code - no danger of your system going in a direction you don't like.

Other Options?

If a bespoke solution isn't for you, then there are plenty of other options! I've worked with Magento, Drupal, MODx, Wordpress, Prestashop, OpenCart, OSCommerce, Shopify and more!

Why Work with Dave?

I have been building websites since I first found the "View Source" button, way back in 1993. Since then, I've built sites of all shapes and sizes, from large e-commerce sites hosted on multiple load-balanced servers to boutique brochure sites for businesses just starting out.

I have plenty of experience with back-end web development, including PHP, Python, Node.js, ASP.NET, XML, REST APIs, MySQL, SQL Server and SQLite; with development and deployment tools and technologies, including Linux, Apache, Nginx, SVN, Git, PHPUnit (and test-driven development) and Ant; and with front-end code, including HTML (and XHTML), CSS (and Sass), JavaScript (and jQuery) and AJAX.
