Hi! I’m Miguel.
Full-stack web developer based in Bristol.

At the moment I’m a Wordpress developer at Appeal Digital.

Skills

I’m a web developer with over 10 years of experience and an interest in design and psychology, meaning that I like to approach a project from these different angles to deliver a better product.

Code

Skill Level
Tools

I code in PHP, Javascript, HTML & CSS (Sass) following OOP and SOLID principles. I write Unit, Integration and E2E tests with PHP Unit and Behat.

I’ve created APIs to communicate between Wordpress, VueJS and Symfony applications and have integrated with Hubspot, Eposnow, Mailchimp...

My frameworks of choice are Symfony and VueJS but have used Wordpress extensively and I’m open to work with different ones.

Usability

Skill Level
Tools

Working on a research project aimed at building an online community for the senior citizen made me aware of how audiences have different backgrounds, motivations and needs.

Usability tests are vital in identifying problems and addressing users’ needs at an early stage of a project, avoiding unpleasant changes after development.

Clear communication, easy navigation and a minimalistic aesthetic are my main focus. I apply design and UX principles to help me create better experiences for users.
