My name is Gareth O'Shea and I'm a Web Developer who works out of the capital of the world - Limerick, Ireland. There are approximately 7 Bajillion Trillion other developers in my profession. A lot of them are very dedicated and have rather prestigious reputations.
There are those who build frameworks and contribute to massive code libraries; there are those who spend weeks designing a simple logo that captures the entire essence of a company; others have become so rich they sip champagne out of tiny glasses every night and smile.
However, there are not many of my particular brand of developer... the Open Source Network Technologies Integration & Global Project Implementation Consultant!
Perhaps the least sexy sounding job title ever, I've failed at every attempt to abbreviate the title (I introduce myself as simply "web developer").
I have worked on many projects for both large multinational corporations and small local florists. I prefer the latter.
I have done a lot of bespoke work for other web developers, particularly ones who have awkward clients with difficult deadlines. I also pick up the pieces from other web developers' half-finished projects.
Honestly though, my favourite job is one that begins by sitting down with a business owner over a cup of tea and discussing how to improve their business. I love the excitement of figuring out and developing a strategy, both in the real world and the digital, that will make us both more productive and more profitable.
Business is the best!
So what exactly is an Open Source Network Technologies Integration & Global Project Implementation Consultant?
In short, it's a person who can listen to a business owner, observe the nature of their business, and then develop a web-based package that makes them more efficient, more popular and happier. It's a person who studies existing and emerging technologies and trends around the clock.
It's a person who can build anything that's required, not just work from a set catalogue.
You may have no use for such a man, but whether you're a local business owner or thinking about a career in web development yourself (perhaps you're just lonely and want a chat) you may give me a call. If you're in Limerick I'll even let you buy me a coffee!
Have a productive day :-)
