  • Dave's IT CV

    PHP Development, Auckland, Northland, New Zealand After starting in an engineering background, I have moved on to developing websites, working with PHP, MySQL databases, css, HTML, Linux and all the trappings which follow on from that. I have worked with the Silverstripe, Drupal and Joomla CMSes, and Zend Framework. My other projects over the last few years have included my preferred tools of Microsoft Access and Delphi. In the last few years I have freelanced for several companies in Auckl...

  • Kenpo Karate NZ

    Replacing HTML with PHP and css The graphic design of this karate club website was quite attractive. The technology however was basic: table-driven with all HTML, and some css. Being HTML, any changes in general layout, such as amends to the menu, had to be done on every page. Tiresome. What a shame that the HTML4 spec doesn't allow for an "Include" statement. So my first campaign involved the gradual adoption of PHP, so that parts of the layout could be derived from a set of common functions....

  • Pharma Health NZ Web Site

    Kennedy Garland, who runs Pharma Health, (Auckland NZ) already had some idea of key ingredients to use in the graphic design of the web site, such as a red-cross motif. He also wanted to use cool blues and greens, suiting the tone of a healing and natural business. The site uses bespoke PHP, all pages going through a common layout function something like a small-scale CMS, to preserve consistency. The focus of the web site was always going to be the products themselves. Hence, the main page is d...

  • Incentive Solutions PHP

    This was a varied role over 18 months, both front-end and back-end, all manner of PHP, MS-SQL and JavaScript. ISL has a comprehensive and sophisticated system helping to manage all aspects of the business, and I was helping the tech manager (David Higgs) on maintenance and improvements. Coping with tens of thousands of members requires a large range of features, and the main software architect (Hi Lance!) had done an extraordinary job covering so much territory.  Among the tasks were: Creation...

  • HTML Website for ISIS

    ISIS did not require very much in the way of graphics, and wanted the site ready quickly, which somewhat constrained the options for styling. Nevertheless we achieved a reasonable African flavour with a minimum of fuss.

  • Time For You Treatments

    Starting from scratch, the structure of the site fell together very naturally: a home page, contacts page, then one page each devoted to the services Susan offers. We chose pinks, browns and pastel yellows, with some low-contrast marble and towelling textures as a backdrop to menu, footer and page surrounds, to give connotations of spas and saunas. We had several suitable images for the front page and could not choose which one to use. So a very small bit of Javascript refreshes the image on th...

  • Elizabeth Mapstone

    We both met while reading Experimental Psychology at Oxford in 1981-1984. Way back when still learning web sites, I built her a site which now looks very naive. The new one is a tad batter and displays a few examples of her many talents, which truly comprises the tip of the iceberg. Elizabeth is the author of "War of Words: Women and Men Arguing" and "Stop Dreaming, Start Living" www.elizabethmapstone.co.uk In the new design I wanted to apply a tabbed appearance (getting away from the old depr...

  • North Shore Yogalates

    The site needed to be "smooth", mellow, with natural textures and symbols, to reflect the style of the teacher. "Dru" yoga is a style which emphasises calmness and avoids the more strenuous exercises of some other schools. It was also useful to publicise the class dates and locations in North Shore, Auckland, NZ. The teacher was starting from scratch and so publicity and visibility was essential. We were fortunate to secure the ideal domain name which has exactly the words required to convey th...

  • Owen Arts SEO

    Owen had arranged a nice design, with three key pages for his main activities: illustration, storyboards and visuals. Each page had 16 thumbnails, and clicking on these opened a full page in a new browser with a good-sized image and no text to clutter matters. Unfortunately the site was almost unfindable on any major search engine, well down the page listings if it appeared at all. Owen had resorted to paying other directories for some listings and second-order visibility. This worked by getting...

  • Markland Clinic

    For the latest incarnation of this UK Physiotherapy site in 2010, I created a smooth-scrolling Flash animation for a band of pictures along the top. In 2008, a new branding had been created by designer Ray Lipscombe, so I had a straightforward time implementing it. Ray's design for the sister site, Sports Perform, provided me my first opportunity to create a Flash presentation. It was as simple as they come, a sequence of photos of athletes fading into each other. I used the excellent and eve...

  • IPSV Module for Joomla

    What is IPSV? The IPSV (Integrated Public Sector Vocabulary) is a controlled vocabulary of approximately 7,000 terms, categorised in a hierarchy sometimes up to 7 or 8 levels deep. The IPSV serves as an encoding scheme for use with the Subject element of the e-GMS (e-Government Metadata Standard). By agreeing a consistent set of descriptive terms, search agents are more likely to find successful matches: for example, "Heritage" is a term to be used instead of near-synonyms such as "Conservation"...

  • Seismics.net Google SEO

    Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) Cosmetically, the site was pretty well suited for the market - no-frills. And it was already well-ranked on Google for some terms, but they were not all the terms which were required. It didn't take long for me to rummage "under the hood" to spot the usual culprits: poor page titles, no headings summaries at all, and, of less value, lack of META descriptions. Following up the rear was a sprinkle of small-beer items : a few TITLEs missing for images and better an...
