I’m Martin Sarsini, a Freelance Software Developer based out of Glasgow.

For over 10 years, I have been helping start-ups, and small to medium-sized businesses imagine, design, engineer, and deliver successful web applications.

I design, architect and build complex systems that help to solve real-world problems. My expertise encompasses from simple websites that need simple data capture to large and complex applications that require processing of information, taking payments, performing automated tasks, dealing with vast amounts of users and data.

PHP and Back-end development

My main focus is on building Web Applications with PHP and a number of MVC frameworks to deliver rapid, powerful and flexible bespoke apps. My favourite Framework is Symfony, and I also have extensive experience with Yii.

Technologies come and go, that's why my transferrable skills are in Clean Code, Design Patterns and SOLID principles. I work with various SQL databases and ORM libraries such as MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL and Doctrine.

Front-end web development

I work on a daily basis with HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, ReactJS, Javascript and Webpack to provide highly usable interfaces to display complex data.

Being a full-stack developer, I can join the powerful PHP backend to a usable and friendly front-end.

I always enjoy working also on WordPress projects and over the time I have worked on many projects involving bespoke customisation of WordPress.

Development Workflow and Quality

Plan, Sprint, Ship. Repeat. My consolidated workflow includes TDD and Software testing, Agile approach with short cycle development and Continuous Delivery.

Some of the technologies that I work with on my projects are PHPUnit, Git, Vagrant, LAMP administration, Ansible, CircleCI and RabbitMQ.

Business Analysis and Project Management

When required, my role as a freelance web developer also includes that of managing projects.

I have experience managing teams of designers, developers and other professionals; gathering project requirements, creating technical specifications and architecture documents, creating future-proof documentation and managing projects timeline with Agile and SCRUM methodologies.
