Intro

My name is Luke Chambers and I am web developer, living in Plymouth, who specialises in Object Oriented PHP, MySQL, Javascript/jQuery, Html 4.0/5.0/Xhtml and CSS coding.

I have over 7 years commercial experience and during this time I have worked on a variety of different projects. These have ranged from basic cms and e-commerce websites to large scale bespoke commercial websites and databases.

In my last role as a senior web developer I worked on many different e-commerce websites, using a bespoke e-commerce system developed by the company, and as such I acquired and developed a vast wealth of knowledge in contemporary coding methods and web/SEO best practices.

I believe in well structured and efficient coding methods as well as clear, easy to navigate interface design.
