I am a freelance, contract web developer based in Caldicot, perfectly positioned off the M4 between Cardiff and Bristol and just up the road from Newport.
I've developed a large number of small, basic websites for companies with low initial budgets to get the ball rolling
Some of my contract roles have been for some of the countries best known names and leading industry organisations
I love working with innovative people and am regularly contacted by individuals looking for the "next big thing"
As well as established businesses I have worked with many start up's and can use my contacts help them network from day 1
Isotrak are one of the haulage industry leaders in providing tracking software for large fleets used by some of the biggest companies in the both the U.K, U.S and now Australia. I have been part of a large team developing a host of software solutions to further enhance their flagship product.
The company has a massive database driving their software which raises a host of challenges around performance and constant improvements and enhancements are required to ensure the end user is not impacted. The company has a number of teams each playing their own role in ensuring this is the case, under which I am currently working as part of the core development team.
Cyprus Wedding Services offer happy couples looking to marry in Cyprus the opportunity to review potential suppliers of a host of wedding services. The responsive website has just launched phase 1 with phase 2 and 3 curently being developed also.
The wedding industry in Cyprus is big business and is growing year on year. This website is looking to become the who's who of wedding services in Cyprus and if they can manage that will have a host of advertising opportunites to utilise as revenue streams.
As a contract web dveloper there is always a lot of competition for roles so I am taking steps to stand out from the crowd via my Microsoft Certification in Solutions Development with the National I.T Learning Centre.
The course covers a whole host of modules, sections and technologies. Many I am already familiar with and many have involved a lot of study. HTML 5, CSS 3 and modern user interface techniques through to MVC, SignalR, web farms architecture and Windows Azure.
I have to say have learnt a lot but still have the exams to do as well as complete the material for the web api and wcf modules but am loving every minute of it. Website link
Don’t just take my word for it – see what previous clients have said
Our old site was well visited due to our membership base but was put together myself using my limited knowledge, it was slow and dated. Our new site was a breath of fresh air. Working with Simon was one of the best moves we have made to date as our new site portrays exactly the type of image we want and is bringing in enquiries from new members. We will continue to pass on your details as we did with Sally of Orchid Films.
Simon recently undertook the redesign,redevelopment and SEO of our company website. We provided him with a list of key words and phrases applicable to our industry. We found Simon to be very knowledgeable and experienced in gaining higher positioning and ranking on Google. Six months down the road our company's website is sitting on top of the front page as a result. We would have no hesitation in recommending his services.
Although I had some experience working with websites for my company I really didn’t have an idea who to go to when I needed a website done for a block of apartments that I was managing. I got a recommendation to try Simon Lewis and from the very start he was quick to respond and adapt my ideas, he always gave very good guidance and provided a graphic artist who took my design ideas and turned them into exactly what I was looking for. I would certainly use Simon again and will be recommending him to friends and colleagues.
Simon was recommended to us by one of his existing clients and we have been so pleased with the work he did on our website we have in turn recommended them to others. He initially added a Content Management System and Blog to our website and took over the hosting of our site, and we have since gone back to him for further additions. We found Simon to be very helpful and efficient, and he takes a lot of time and trouble to get everything right. He is certainly very good value for money compared to others in the same field.
