Ideation & workshops.

A huge part of what I do, is in the conceptual stages. I often feel happiest, listening to stakeholders’ problems and converting them into something tangible.

Technical specifications.

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” 

I produce highly detailed, accurate technical specifications that ensure I start a project prepared for every eventuality. These may include:

  • Functional specs
  • Entity relationship diagrams
  • API specifications
  • Server architecture diagrams
  • User flow diagrams

Roadmaps, and release planning.

Whilst we may think we want every possible feature to be ready for at launch, this is rarely the best option. 

By releasing a MVP (Minimum Viable Product), your project can be released earlier allowing for feedback from the end users much sooner. This often prioritises unexpected features and ultimately delivers a solution to the end-users’ actual problems.

Server architecture, physical or cloud.

Throughout the last decade, I have trained my primarily linux based hosting skills on all manner of projects, focussing on speed, security, scalability and maintenance, delivering:

  • Large dedicated physical hosting solutions for international brands
  • Complex hybrid physical / cloud solutions for Sony PlayStation, Ascot and FlowTechnology
  • Scalable cloud based solutions in AWS for finance, eCommerce and global pharmaceutical brands.
