Home About Me Portfolio Contact

My name is Lance Taylor

I am a professional web developer, based in Glasgow, Scotland.

I am qualified and experienced in a range of web based technologies, and easily adapt to new ones as required. I can hand code X/HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery and PHP to expert level. I write web based applications of the highest quality with logically structured, clearly commented, thoroughly documented code. My emphasis is on creating not just implementations but interfaces that can be reused, scaled for bigger purposes, yet still remaining manageable and suitable for pain-free handover to other developers as required. I also have experience of graphic design and use of various relevant software packages.

Equally important are my interpersonal skills. I am comfortable at a senior level within a team, mentoring more junior developers and helping them develop their skills. In this capacity I have also given talks to entire classes of Honors university students on coding best practices and offering advice for real world employment.

On this site you will find plenty of information about my skills and experience along with examples of what I can do. My CV is downloadable in the About Me section, where you can get to know me a little better.

Any questions, comments or if you would like to discuss a project please get in touch!

HTML 5

This site is written using valid HTML 5 syntax, with the layout and style stored in a seperate CSS file. This conforms to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) recommendations and specifications with the aim of displaying on current and future web browsers in a consistent manner. The strict syntax of HTML 5 means it can also display consistently on other internet devices, browsers and operating systems.

To validate my HTML and CSS please use the W3C buttons on the right hand side of the page.

Responsive Design

There are a wide range of browser resolutions available to the end user. Historically this meant different sizes of computer monitor, but in this day and age there are many more browsing agents than can be accurately predicted such as mobile browsers. The fixed-width web site is a relic that belongs in the past. This page maintains a free flowing "stretchy" structure at any resolution.

For a demonstration, resize your browser window.

Welcome!
