My name is Lachlan Collingwood-Brown and I am a web developer from Brisbane, Australia. I graduated from Griffith University in November 2013 with a Bachelor of Multimedia and have been working on small to large website projects and contracts since 2014.

I am passionate about web development and want to continue to expand my knowledge in this field. I honestly enjoy designing and developing websites that are tailored specifically to a client's needs. Each project is unique and I look forward to every opportunity I get to work in this industry.

I can work on any aspect of a website or a business' online presence. If you are unfamiliar with common web development practises, know that I have a comprehensive understanding of web based platforms and am very capable of developing or updating anything related to your website.

My bread a butter languages for web development are PHP, JavaScript, and MySQL. I also frequently use JQuery, AJAX, JSON, and AWS. I have experience programming in C, Objective C, C++, and Java to make non-web based applications for a variety of tasks.

For front end work I have used a variety of TypeScript and JavaScript heavy frameworks including Angular and React. To handle layouts and responsiveness I prefer to use Bootstrap for consistency. If a complex custom styles is desired I will use a CSS preprocessor like SASS.

When completing back end work I typically use a PHP LAMP stack. I often use MVC frameworks like Laravel and CodeIgniter to support the back end of a website and facilitate data transmission to the server.

I have thorough experience developing sites and making large scale updates on more comprehensive CMS frameworks like WordPress. Other content management systems I have worked with include WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Wix, Joomla, Drupal, and Shopify. I have built completely custom WordPress themes and plugins from scratch.

Payment gateways I have used in the past include PayPal, Stripe, and Square. I am able to implemenet proprietary payment avenues even if the website can not support other common methods.

I have a lot of experience using Photoshop and Illustrator and am able to generate images, logos, and icons from scratch for any project.
