Neil Sayers

Wordpress web developer in London


I work under the name ScreenCandy, as a freelance Wordpress developer. I can help with all aspects of website building: planning, design, development, SEO, accessibility, hosting advice, maintenance and training in the use of Wordpress CMS. I hand-code all my own work, preferring to build bespoke, custom Wordpress themes from scratch, which adhere to accessibility and SEO best practices.

The kinds of sites I have created include:

* Brochure sites
* E-commerce site (using WooCommerce)
* Events management and booking sites
* Directories of services
* Charity and donation microsites
* Forums and Buddypress networks
* Wordpress multi-site installations
* Multi-lingual site experience

I also:

* Develop custom Wordpress plugins
* Build sites from supplied PSD/PNG designs
* Run training sessions in Wordpress administration

My skill-set in a bit more geeky detail is as follows...

* PHP/CSS/JS (jQuery) development, within the T4 Site Manager and Wordpress CMSs
* Experience with Bootstrap and Gridset design frameworks
* Building fully responsive websites and applications with mobile first considerations (SVG graphics, media queries, HTML5, etc.)
* GIT version control with Github and BitBucket
* SASS, Coffee Script pre-processing tools
* Gulp build task automation
* API integration, for example Wordpress REST API and Salesforce json feeds
* Building applications with Google Maps V3 API
* Basic React.js mobile app development
* Some Salesforce development experience
* Using designer/developer project management tools (Moqups, Indesign, Zeplin, Trello)

Hammersmith and Fulham CAB

I completely designed and built this site from scratch. I met with the CAB management team, and set out goals and objectives for the site. I then designed it, presented my designs, and took in any feedback/comments. Then I set about coding the site into Wordpress. I also ran a training session for staff and am on-hand to support them with any queries.
