Webeism | What's it all about?

Other than being a somewhat ridiculous neologism for "belief in webiness", Webeism is... me, John Hemsley. Thanks for dropping by! I'm a freelance web developer with 6+ years of development experience under my belt.

I deliver projects across the "full-stack" of back end / database / server technologies through to front end development. My preferred tools of the trade are PHP, MySQL, HTML(5), CSS(3), JS and JQuery, however I do have experience in other languages, systems and acronyms.

I have delivered booking systems, payment gateway integrations, reporting modules, custom login zones, full websites, webpages, widgets and a whole lot more. I have worked across the events, travel, health, education, recruitment and many other sectors.

Take a look at the services I can offer you below and get in touch if you think I might be able to assist in your web projects.

I am constantly dipping in and out of web projects. Tweaking a database query here, updating some HTML there, sending the odd HTML email in between.

How much for a website?

Can you get me to number one on Google?

Why have you used the word "Quandaries" instead of "Questions"?

I spotted a small black cat on your site - what's that all about?
