Tony Fox - Freelance PHP Developer - Christchurch Dorset

Overview

I'm a Freelance developer with a multitude of skills. I'm mainly a backend PHP developer working with Wordpress, Magento and Laravel. I'm highly proficient in front end JavaScript based frameworks such as angularjs, vue.js and react.

Because I'm a logical thinker I don't just program blindly, I carefully plan out each job and pick the best approach for the best results.

I work quickly and effectively and am used to fast turn around times but still keep standards high.

Most of all I'm friendly, easy to get along with and open. If you have a project in mind or would like to chat about something in the pipeline, give me a call.

Showcase

Here's a few samples of projects I've worked on over the last year. So much of the code I do is behind the scenes within Extensions, Plugins and internal systems so feel free to contact me and I'll talk you through anything you'd like to know.

My History & How I Got Here

I've been developing with PHP for 20 years as a Full Stack Developer and I always keep up-to-date with the latest frameworks, languages and methods. Over that time I've worked with many different companies of all sizes but here's the main highlights.

1

Kondor

While at Kondor I built custom internal systems, b2b and b2c sites all written in PHP, MySQL and on Linux architecture. Some of the clients I worked with included Three Mobile and Vodafone.

2020 Mobile / Brightstar

The Team at Kondor was approached by 2020 Mobile (now Brightstar) to work for them on mobile accessory sites for Orange, Motorola, talkmobile to name but a few. These sites were originally in .net but after a lot of research we found magento to be the best fit for the business.

CompareMyMobile & Brave

I then co-founded a mobile phone recycling comparison site with my two colleagues from Kondor. Over several years we tried many different platforms including custom systems, wordpress, magneto, codeignitor and laravel. At the same time we created a web agency to service growing requests for help from people we knew within the mobile industry.

Frequency Telecom

After selling Compare My Mobile I was ready for a new challenge, one of which was Frequency Telecom. They needed help integrating NetSuite, Magneto, m2e Pro, Amazon, eBay so it all ran smoothly. I also created internal tools in laravel and vue.js to monitor performance of Amazon listings and automatically suggest improvements to the product content based on the competition and rankings.
