Steve Hazelden

I am passionate about what I do and extremely critical of my own work!

I was author for a number of years of the weekly internet column in the local "District Mail" newspaper and I also gave a number of Private Internet related courses.
I specialised in the development side of the web and especially database integration which is integral for CMS/CRM development.
I was sub-contracted to Gallo Images for a number of years customizing their Fotoware Image system. I was invited to Denmark to visit Fotoware and attend an international Fotoware seminar.
In later years I have kept myself up to date with many videos from Youtube and Lynda.com to ensure I stay abreast with technology and all functionality available on the Internet.
For my latest projects I have been using the PHP MCV framework of Yii.
I assure you of my best service and attention at all times. Each of my clients is more of a friend than a client. I look forward to hearing from you and being of assistance to you in your upcoming web adventure!
