I've been a Web Developer since 2005, specialising in the development of WordPress and eCommerce websites using the following skills: WordPress, PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and SEO. My recent experience includes developing several eCommerce websites on the WordPress platform using the WooCommerce Plugin - this is now the area I specialise in. My experience also includes any type of WordPress website development which includes creating WordPress Plugins, customizing themes and general WordPress problem solving. I've also had plenty of experience with websites that dynamically display content extracted from MySQL databases and creating PHP backend sites to maintain these MySQL databases. As a relative newbie to , I'm prepared to bid competitively in order to get jobs initially and in the process build up my FreeLancer reputation.
