# Hiya, I’m Matt : Developer, Programmer & Designer with 15+ Years of Experience

The first flully-fledged website I created dates back from 1998, using custom PHP and MySQL. Fast-forward a few years and in 2003, I discovered WordPress, which was a fantastic tool for clients to easily publish content.

On Codeable, I have completed more than 135 projects and many clients are happy to call on me again to move their site onto the next level, which is utterly satisfying.

Server and site security

The security of your server and site is paramount. Every moving part must use the latest and most secure protocols.

Here’s an example of a secured server running the Qualys SSL test :

The server above also has DNSSEC and DANE implemented, which is more than banking sites feature !


Site migrations

I also specialize in site migrations from your old host to your new host or switch your whole installation from HTTP to HTTPS.

Migration to HTTPS

This will be a seamless transition to the most secure version of your website : no mixed-content issues, no plugins to “fix” the configuration. Straight-up HTTPS with no loss of traffic.


Coding services

I also manage dedicated Linux servers and Virtual Private Servers and customize everything to suit my clients’ needs : LEMP stack, TLS certificates, mail server, custom DNS server, custom shell scripting. Tell me about what you need and we’ll see how we can do it.

You do not hire a developer to write code, you hire a developer to solve your problem.

Hire Matt now.

Matt fixed the issues with the contact form on my website extremely quickly and thoroughly. I had been getting a lot of spam and couldn't figure out how to configure my contact form properly despite working with tech support. He responded very quickly to my concerns and got everything straightened out promptly and made sure everything was working the way I needed it to. Very professional and pleasant to work with.

Outstanding help and support as usual. We have worked with Matt before and had no hesitation in hiring him for a complex migration of a major website. His attention to detail is second to none and his communication is quick and crystal clear.

Fantastic working with Matt. He went above and beyond to solve a number of problems for us. The project threatened to sprawl out of control due to unforeseen circumstances, but Matt kept his professional cool and helped us to move everything forward. Looking forward to working with him again in the future.

This is our third project with Matt, each time he continues to help us understand what is going on, not only just getting the work done. For relative newbies into this business, it is greatly appreciated.

Matt created a plugin to help us embed videos on our site. (They wouldn't embed using the normal WP methods.) And though we hadn't mentioned or considered it when we created the task, he also later modified the plugin so we could add a cover image to the videos. Happy to recommend Matt to others!

After previously being burnt by a different developer on a different platform we were sceptical about how it would all work, but Matt was a dead set legend, worked through the details with us patiently, dug around to see what the problems were, then came in and knocked the issues out the park. Super effort all round and we look forward to working with him again.
