Not only do I hold the well regarded Zend Certified Engineer for PHP 5.3 certificate, but I've also passed exams through PeoplePerHour. These PHP exams are PHP5 and Advanced PHP for which I rank in the top 5%.
I specialize in developing dynamic websites and web applications driven by PHP and MySQL or MSSQL. While a highly experienced PHP developer, I also specialise in HTML, CSS and JavaSript development - including the latest AJAX and jQuery technologies.
I've developed a range of unique PHP web based applications including a warehouse order management system, custom content management system, change control system, customer services dailer, and complaints management system, to name a few!
I'm currently developing a PHP driven comparison website for comparing business mobile phone packages, CompareBusinessPhones. I'm also re-developing the main business application in order to incorporate the latest PHP technologies for my full-time employer, The Funding Corporation.
I've worked as a web developer at Moneysupermarket, and through this have done partnership work with top companies such as Yahoo and MSN.

About Freelancer of the Year awards:-
The only Awards in the UK dedicated to that unsung hero of Marketing, Media and Communications – the freelancer. Following the success of last year, 2012 will see the event’s eighth year and one that promises to be our most successful yet! Freelancers too often go unrecognised for the sterling work they do, overlooked as fellow team members bask in the glory of a successful campaign. For this reason Xchangeteam created the Awards in 2003 – so that the very best could be showcased and celebrated and their contribution recognised. Our South West office now has been running for 3 years and has built a strong network within our specialised sector in this region. This year we have decided to launch a completely separate Freelancer of the Year for our South West region too. An eminent array of judges from the marketing, media and communications community will select six category winners and one overall winner. The award ceremonies will be held in London in March and Bristol in February 2012.

Job Title: Systems Developer
Company: The Funding Corporation Limited
Description: In this position I am responsible for requirements gathering, database design, web application development of internal web based systems, and system analysis.
In my time at The Funding Corporation I've developed a number of web based systems which have dramatically streamlined business processes, cut costs, and helped the way which people around the company go about their day to day work.
Not only have I developed new web based systems, but I've rewritten ASP.NET web applications into PHP, and written business critical scripts saving the company in excess of £20,000/annum.
Job Title: Web Developer
Description: As part of the Rapid Response Development Team I was responsible for urgent bug fixes, which included prevention of SQL Injection and Cross Site Scripting (XSS).
In this position I was required to communicate with not only staff throughout different areas of the business, but also with staff at Moneysupermarket.com partner companies, such as Yahoo and MSN.
I originally went to Moneysupermarket.com for work experience at the age of 16 and had no experience of ASP. I picked up ASP within a couple of days after shadowing a developer and was then given some work to do myself. This made a good enough impression which lead them to offering me a contract at the end of my two week work experience period.

James is the best developer I have found in my five years of using Peopleperhour. Technically brilliant, prompt, honest, conscientious, and thorough. James really takes pride in his work and it shows. Leave something with him and he will get it done, and to an exacting standard. I fully recommend James to anyone!
