Development & Ramblings

A professional Web Developer since 2005

My Skills

Magento eCommerce

Working frequently with Magento in recent years I have become adept at bending this powerful eCommerce platform to suit the varied requirements of a range of clients.

In my blog you'll find a number of Magento related articles as well as a plugin I have created.

PHP + more

Primarily a PHP developer since University. A grounding in coding standards allows me to apply my skills to a number of different web languages as the opportunity arises including front-end markup.

I've also been known to tinker with server administration and setup.

WordPress CMS

As the most widely known and used blog and Content Management System I can provide help in a wide range of ways.

Whether it's blog setup, theme coding or plugin creation I can make your blog the perfect place to express yourself online.

Douglas Radburn

Hi, my name is Douglas Radburn and I’m a web developer from York, England. As well as undertaking exciting freelance projects I also work in Leeds as Open Source Technical Lead at the highly respected digital agency Branded3.

I consider myself to be extremely fortunate that my job is also my passion. Providing a pragmatic solution to a clients problems is really satisfying and seeing my work drive their success is very satisfying.

Since graduating university in 2005 I have developed my skills, adopting an understanding of leading software packages such as WordPress and Magento in addition to creating numerous bespoke solutions that can be tailored perfectly to a company and it’s customers desires.

Though I primarily take on projects that require development only I do work with a close team who can provide additional services in areas such as Design and Search Engine Optimisation if these are required.

If you want to chat, or work together on a project feel free to get in touch.

I’ve worked with Doug for the last 2 and half years. He is in my opinion, one of the rarities within the development world – a techie who also considers a project from the commercial or customer facing side as well as the technical. He has not only proved himself to be an extremely competent and efficient developer, but coupled with his authority within the industry and the countless times he’s gone well above and beyond the call of duty to assist with problems - there is no one I would trust more with my projects.
