50% of nuts are lost because squirrels forget where they hide them

Hello World

My name's Aled and I build things to make life easier for businesses. Some people will call me a nerd, I am totally okay with this, but I like to think of myself as a problem solver.

I'm not one to boast. If you know me - and you aren't bitter because you're a cat person when dogs clearly rule - you know this is accurate. In fact the whole concept of a website dedicated to myself makes me slightly uncomfortable... but it's kind of a requirement of the job.

I build bespoke web based systems so please don't ask me where the flux capacitor goes on a foosball table (I'm assuming everything awesome has a flux capacitor) but if you had a question about an online presence or shop. Perhaps you want to manage your clients in a more efficient paperless system or just have an idea you just wanted to make accessible to others via a web browser then send me a message.

Background

I have a CompSci bachelors degree from Swansea University and roughly 6 years experience as a Web Developer working for a Cardiff based IT company called Ikona IT (they're a good bunch).

I like a challenge and Ikona IT like pushing the boundaries of the Web Developer title so in my time there I've designed & developed websites, online shops, point of sale systems, internal CRM systems, mobile apps to sign off work orders for these CRMs, financial databases, optimised websites for search engines, managed projects from design to hosting and ongoing maintenance and I enjoy, nearly, every minute of it.

I've now moved to Vancouver where I was working with a small Expression Engine team for nearly a year and have recently moved into a UI Developer role for a company called Dominion Marine Media and have been there since November 2016.

My fave languages and dev. tools are: PHP, MYSQL, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, AJAX, XML, JSON. I've dabbled with Wordpress, CakePHP (MVC framework) & Java (for android apps). I'm always looking to expand on my skillset so if you have a challenge for me then please get in touch. In my new UI focussed roles I've dabbling further into LESS and recently been learning Angular.js and Angular.io

I'm often told my general knowledge is poor so, while I'm not investigating new development tools, in my spare time I look up facts about animals... Polar bears are left handed and are invisible to infrared cameras.

Check out my projects area for some examples...

Would I recommend Aled to anyone else?

That is a very simple question to answer - without a shadow of doubt I would.

We stumbled across Ikona IT when we were looking for a company to help/work along side us to simplify and improve our accounting system. Once we had our first meet & greet Al knew straight away what we wanted to achieve and came back with a database that was amazing and exceeded all expectations.

I have been very impressed with the friendliness and responsiveness which Ikona IT and in particular Aled showed when it came to providing us with what we were striving to achieve which was saving us time, money and a few grey hairs!
