Logo Introduction to Steve

Freelance Website Developer Based In Leeds

Hello, I'm Steve. I am a versatile freelance website developer who usually works in and around Leeds. Having worked on over 400 websites over the course of several years, I consider myself an adept developer with both PHP and Javascript. I also have very good understanding of many different frameworks including Wordpress (and Woocommerce), Laravel, Shopify and Joomla. I am currently polishing my knowledge on HAML, SASS, and Angular JS, with the goal to become extremely competent within these languages and frameworks.


Outside of programming I have always enjoyed doing a wide variety of things. I like to go bouldering and hiking whenever I get the opportunity. I enjoy going out for a game of pool with my mates or meeting new people and making friends. I also really like to travel and hope to one day have travelled most of the world. If you think I sound like the right person for your project, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Having previously worked for QWeb they are now one of my most trusted clients. They still outsource a variety of various interesting projects to me and have helped me get to where I am today. I did not build their website but I did help with aspects of it and I have helped them with both internal and external projects. A very good and trust worthy design/development agency.

What the client said:

"I've worked with Steven since he was a student and when my new company needed to hire it's first developer, he was the obvious choice for us. Steven worked here for almost a year before moving on to set up on his own. During this time he has built a number of large projects, mostly eCommerce, and has shown both technical ability and willingness to learn. He is motivated by good ideas, programmatic challenges and the dream of one day 'going viral'."

This project utilizes the Wordpress framework and also incorperates lots of bespoke functionality. The website has a vast amount of features including bespoke sections in the adminstration area to search for prices and add criterias to product reviews. It was built for Steve Rhys who is the designer and inspiration of the website.

What the client said:

"Steve has worked tirelessly for my business over the last 6 months helping us to achieve a major milestone by successfully completing the first beta version of our demanding and complex web based application. After previous programmers failed to deliver on their promise, Steve came in and quite literally saved the business from going under. In a matter of months Steve's incredible perseverance, programming experience and incomparable work ethic transformed a virtually redundant piece of software in to a thriving product which we are now all very passionate about. Steve is an extremely reliable and competent professional, we are currently still working with him and will hopefully continue to do so for a long time. We would certainly recommend him."

Fifa Ninja

Project Utilizes: HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, JS, jQuery, Wordpress

Fifa Ninja was a project I joined in November 2014. The website offers Fifa players the ability to buy coins for the game Fifa. It was built using Wordpress and Woocommerce. It had multiple plugins running which were built by numerous developers. My plugins included database cleanups, account management and price management. These plugins made it easier for the administrators to get the most from Woocommerce. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the entire Fifa Ninja team and have recently heard it has gone onto evolve into EvoNinja.

What the client said:

"Steve is a great guy, works fast and really fun to work with. He is capable of writing very complex code and I would highly recommended him."

Absolutely Best

This website offers a service to find the best of anything and everything. It allows users to register and then vote on items where items can be anything. For example, if a user were to add the best tree collection with some trees as the items then people could vote on these. There are many other features, such as real time item sorting, the ability to add items to other peoples collections and the ability to search for products from Amazon that makes this one of the best websites I had created. It is getting remade in 2021 as a new brand called: The Best Voted.

Think You Know Me

Project Utilizes: HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, JS, jQuery, Pluggable

Think you know me was created to allow users to share a quiz based on themselves with anyone on the internet. It allows these users to add up to 10 questions about themselves and then see the results after they share it. A challenging aspect was the anonymity of the people who would take the creator's quiz. Creators found it was not possible to see who was taking their quiz so to counter this we made it where the person can decide if they want to put their name or not to let the creator know.

Logo Works in progress

Absolutely Best

Absolutely Best

The website is still a work in progress and is currently in its beta stage. It still has many more features to be added to it and will continue to be developed over the coming years. Once it begins to accumulate more members the developments will begin to roll out more frequently. Until then it will be worked on in spare time or whenever a serious flaw becomes apparent.

Pluggable

Pluggable 2.0

The pluggable system is my own framework with inspiration from Wordpress' plugin system. Once it has been launched the premise will be to pick and choose other developers plugins to create your website. It is going to be more of a developer tool rather than another CMS/blogging/e-commerce platform. It will be extremely lightweight, consisting of only a few core files, but will allow developers to quickly assemble a bespoke system with the click of a few buttons. For example, one of the pluggables is known as 'modal' which has code for a bespoke modal and a colorbox modal. Simply add this pluggable to the loading list and all the functionality will be loaded and will not interfere with any other component.
