A freelance web developer based in London, UK. I specialise in PHP and Ruby on Rails development.

Web DevelopmentThings I believe in

AGILE DEVELOPMENT

No project management is perfect but from my experience of different methodologies I really do believe that an agile approach is the saner approach to managing a project.

TDD / BDD

If you are building robust professional software products then tests are vital. I prefer the test driven approach to development as this catches bugs early and allows the developer to have faith in the code.

DRY

Don't Repeat Yourself - As a developer I believe it is your responsibility to refactor your code as part of your day to day job. If you have tests in place then the risk in doing this is greatly reduced.

BEING PRAGMATIC

Do things to the best of your current ability. Software can never be perfect. There is always time to refactor. If you keep worrying that you are not doing things exactly as "they should be done" then you will never complete a project.
