I do freelance web development work, almost always using Python (and normally Django). If you are interested in hiring me and want to see examples of my work, you can have a look at these commercial projects for clients I've been involved in:
Wolf & Badger.
I'm currently the main developer on this e-commerce site, and have done a lot of work on it, including implementing the current responsive design, as well as a lot of backend work.
Django CMS 'Semantic editor' plugin.
This is a plugin for django CMS which provides a more capable text editor, allowing for advanced layouts. It's used by the Cardiff School of Medicine website and the Arkestra CMS that runs it.
Shout Aloud - a children's choir in Cambridge.
This is a very small django-cms site. The plugins for uploading media files proved quite useful in this case.
You can also look at the software projects listed above and the websites below, all of which are volunteer projects (note that some of these are very old!). My contributions to open source projects can be found mainly on GitHub and BitBucket.
Please also see my development standards.
Friends and family should be warned that it is almost entirely geeky and technical, with only occasional articles on Christian things.

memorisation website. Created
- Christian Camps in Wales - created
using Django. (Source
