Project Summary is an ecommerce website providing personalised gifts. Originally started around 2003, I started working on the initial version of the website in 2004.

  • Project:
  • For: Interactive Web Solutions
  • Period: September 2004 - June 2010
  • Role: Lead developer


Lead developer from the outset of the project. ARchitecure, code, admin area, payment gateways


PHP, MySQL, Apache, ImageMAgick, Smarty template engine.


I was lead developer on the first two iterations of the website. Once I'd moved into a sysadmin role the site was redeveloped for a third time using an in-house framework. I then became a maintainer and occasional developer on the project until it was once again redeveloped in Magento.
