Hi there! I'm Nick Pyett and I'm a freelance web developer based in Manchester, UK. I've been developing web sites since 2006.
I work with open-source programming languages, frameworks and content management systems to create many different types of web site. I make portfolio and brochure web sites; registration sites and delegate management systems; responsive sites (like this one!) and mobile sites; content managed web sites and e-commerce product sites. I typically work with small and medium sized businesses, and charities.
PHP, CodeIgniter & jQuery
I am a PHP developer, and one of my preferred CMS solutions is PyroCMS. It's a fantastic CMS platform fit to manage news sites, blogs and e-commerce sites. I also use the PHP application framework CodeIgniter to create bespoke web solutions where an off-the-shelf solution will not fit a projects objectives.
As well as being a PHP developer I also work with front-end technologies, including CSS3 and jQuery. I also love a bit of HTML5; from standards compliant, semantic mark-up to scripting canvas animation that are drawn right in your browser.
Here is a test HTML5 canvas animation modeling exponential bacterial growth! (You will need a modern browser like the latest version Firefox or Chrome to see the animation).
When I'm not Developing Web Sites
Outside of work I enjoy five-a-side football, music and playing guitar, and reading about modern marketing and true-life adventure books. I also write a blog about web development, online marketing and design.
