I have worked with James on my website for two year’s and together we’ve come up with new idea’s and ways to make the whole system better. There’s nothing James wouldn’t take on, no matter how bizarre my idea’s have been! He constantly works at looking at different and new ways to uplift our company, from an e-commerce point of view. James is also a very easy character to get along with, very personable which makes life easier from my point of view. Would highly recommend James to any company.
Senior PHP / MySQL Web Developer
My main responsibility at Colewood is to act as a technical lead on a number of technical projects. This includes aiding in the planning of projects and creating specifications for clients and fellow developers. One of my main roles is also to mentor and advise junior developers on the team.
Since starting at Colewood I have implemented a number of development processes. Upon my arrival I was quick to establish the need for code repositories, and now all applications are stored within Git repositories. This included the setup of a continuos integration server (TeamCity) which ensures that all of our code is documented, a similar style and standard and that no syntax errors or code which may fail unit tests is deployed onto the server. This reduces the risk of erroneous code or errors being deployed into a production environment.
Recently my focus has been developing internal tools for various parts of the company to increase productivity and reduce the amount of time being used to do menial tasks hence speed up processes within the company.
