Website Design and Development, Online Software and other creations by Steven Annan.

I’ve been offering my services online as a Freelance Web Developer for around 10 years now and have worked previously at Digital Marketing Agency’s and other businesses as a Front-end and PHP Web Developer. Over the years I’ve focused on custom PHP Development, CSS and jQuery. I also have experience in other languages, API integrations and working with and developing for CMS or other web based software.

The first bit of coding I remember doing was in primary school using a program called LOGO. It allowed you to type in simple commands which would direct a robot along the ground, as a child it amazed me and sparked my interest in computing and electronics. It wasn’t until I was in high school that I got interested in web development, they had a set of Macintosh Performa computers running Netscape Navigator. It was my first introduction to the internet. I got shown a website called Tripod where you could build your own page. This got me learning the basics of how the web worked and how to create my own images on a computer, by the end of High School my family had got a computer at home and I was learning to code more complex websites in notepad using basic HTML and SSI/CGI methods. After leaving School I studied computing and mathematics based subjects at college then later attended university on an Electronic Engineering course. During this time I was also designing and selling websites, I called this “eudemonics” as it was fun work.

I’m continually trying to improve and learn new ways to create for the web, below are some of the things I’ve picked up so far.
