Web development in Canberra

About

Introduction

In my time as a Drupal developer in Canberra I have had the chance to work with a wide range of businesses. From Federal Government departments like Prime Minister and Cabinet and the Department of Social Services, to peak industry bodies such as Engineers Australia, and small businesses like Territory Tanks, or Andrew James Makeup and Millenry.

I have developed Intranets, Extranets and Internet websites. Online shops and registration access only sites. I can develop from a pre-bought template, or work with a designer to make you a custom product you are proud of.

No, you don't need an App

Apps are very “in” at the moment, as they have been for a few years now, and some companies think they haven’t quite made it, until they have their own App. The truth however is that you don’t need an App. In 90% of cases, it’s a waste of money and a huge overhead for the future.

Defending Drupal

I went to Google for some Anti-Drupal posts and see if I can bust them and help people realise how great this CMS can be.
