Hello, I am Simon. I am a front-end web developer from Bristol, UK using Drupal.

Currently available for hire

Let's talk about your project.

In a nutshell

I am a front-end web developer using Drupal to build responsive websites for the modern web. I have 10 years commercial experience and have worked with some fantastic clients over the years.

In my toolkit

  1. HTML 4 / 5 is used for defining structure in document mark-up.

  2. CSS 2 / 3 is used to make those page elements look lovely and presentable.

  3. SASS / LESS allows me to write modern, smart efficient code.

  4. JavaScript / jQuery brings behaviour to the table.

  5. Gulp is brilliant and is my go-to tool for automating a build system.

  6. libsass / SASSC are my libraries of choice which allow me to run a preprocessor like SASS to compile CSS.

  7. BrowserSync is high up there when it comes to automation, no more Ctrl + F5 after each CSS change.

  8. SMACSS is a fantastic architecture when it comes to organising CSS.

  9. RWD allows me to adopt the mobile first philosophy and provide an optimum experience that's device agnostic.

  10. Git is my go-to tool for version control. It is brilliant and I don't like working without it.

  11. Drush makes for a happy developer life :)

  12. BASH shell because it's a fast and efficient way to work while developing.
