I’m Thomas Deer, a freelance website developer, passionate about the web, happily building, breaking then rebuilding most things PHP and WordPress.
I have been working in Web Development for around 10 years and have worked on a fair few projects which is where I learnt most of what I know.
My passion all began when I was studying Computer Science towards my BTEC National Diploma at TCAT College. Amongst different IT elements, Web Development was the topic I felt most passionate about. I can remember using Notepad ++ and a very early version of Adobe Fireworks to create a web page for a Java Game I was working as part of the development team on. Although these tools are considered primitive in comparison to the ones I use these days.
After I left college I started working at Billcar Engineering, I was originally employed here to create and maintain the company website, once complete I found myself in the workshop which unfortunately was not an environment I found enjoyable.
When I left Billcar, I felt a little lost, I didn’t have a job to go into, Here is where i fell into a job working in Agriculture which is where i found my love for the great outdoors.
Since then I have moved forward to other Agricultural positions where I have created web applications to keep records on Animal Movement, Animal Treatment and much more.
In 2017 I decided I wanted to get properly qualified as a “Front End” developer so I invested some time and money in doing some online courses which furthered my website development knowledge. Although valuable, these skills left me limited to my possibilities so I looked into how i could pursue my love for web development further.
In early 2019 I stumbled upon an Online Degree to become a “Full Stack” Web Developer, This taught me more in-depth development languages like PHP & MySQL, ReactJS and much more.
Although my educational experience does not stop there, I still frequently take online classes, which keep me busy in my down-time and keep me up to speed with modern technologies.
