Two wise monkeys and Howard...Code No EvilNice Web Applications. User-friendly Designs. Personal Service and Support

My name's Howard Richardson. I'm a web programmer from the UK and I'm available for freelance work.

I'm attentive and friendly and I enjoy putting great open-source software to work for you. Open-source is good for you, like eating your greens. Hence "code no evil". It's all good!

I work one-on-one with clients. This means you're guaranteed my personal attention and a constant point of contact. Not to mention the fairest rates and lots of free support, even when the project's long finished.

I've been doing what I do in this industry for over twelve years and almost all my clients become repeat customers, so you can trust your work will be in safe hands.

Contao ™
Open-source CMS

Hands-down the best open-source Content Management System out there!

Finding a usable, flexible CMS that I could rely on became an obsession for me. I must have tried about twelve or thirteen different ones until I came across Contao — a German-built simple yet powerful CMS that would let me build to an exact specification, rather than dictating one set way of doing things (you could learn from this, Joomla and Wordpress).

I've now built about fifteen sites on Contao and look forward to building many more, so if you're after a Contao expert or are just looking for a great, usable CMS for your site, please get in touch.

Custom-built web apps

Building a web application is much more than just programming.

You need to understand visual design, workflow, web standards, server administration, security threats and above all people!

I offer clients the whole package and can build you an on-spec application that will exceed your expectations and keep working beautifully into the future.

I have many years experience in key web technologies such as HTML5, PHP, MySQL, AJAX, responsive design, JQuery and Apache.

Updating your website

Tweaks, bug fixes, system administration? I can help improve what you already have.

Many times you'll just want something small added to your existing site, like a new graphical element or an additional feature, or maybe just update your server software to the latest secure version.

I am always happy to work with your existing set-up and expand or improve it according to your needs. Just ask me for a free quote!
