I provide a broad range of IT services in the areas of system architecture, freelance programming, web design and database development. Examples of the things I do are:
- Design custom software applications
- Create cost effective database solutions
- Build functional web sites
- Offer technical consulting services
- Provide freelance programming and management support for software projects
I have worked for blue-chip companies in Europe and Australia where I have developed solutions for customers like American Insurance Group, ANZ’s ecommerce division, Telstra’s Intranet solutions group and Foster’s Breweries. Along the way, I have also done work for Internet start-ups, not for profits organisations and smaller businesses.
I like to work in an open source environment as much as possible, this means I program in languages such as Ruby on Rails (RoR), Java, PHP, Perl and C++. I also have done lots of work with some of the Microsoft toolsets (.Net, Sharepoint etc.). I build most of my client websites using the Joomla, WordPress and Drupal content management systems.
I’ve designed and built database solutions using MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLServer and Oracle.
What can I do for you?
I am available for work on a consulting basis, as a software developer and as a general all-round technical resource. My approach to work is open, honest and direct with a can-do attitude and a keen eye on my customer’s return on their investment.
What I don’t do
If you have a development project that you thought you’d save money on by farming out the development to a cheap off-shore outfit; keep it to yourself. It’s now your headache. I won’t retrofit, reverse engineer or otherwise hack the code of a programmer who gets paid $13/hr because that’s what you think they’re worth.
Who are the Associates?
The Associates part of Peter Mac is a small network of individuals (designers, programmers etc) I have worked with over the years with skills that compliment my own and who I can vouch for when it’s time to come up with the goods.
