Louise Findlay

Front-End Web Developer

"Louise was very helpful in developing my website. Even when I was unsure exactly what would be required, she made the process easy and enjoyable and she responded quickly when I had any questions.

I look forward to continue working with her thanks to her Support Care Plan. I can concentrate on making my sewing classes a success and use her expertise in keeping my website fast, safe and secure."

Jane Clark, The Stitch Fairie

"Louise was instrumental in bringing my business online. I tried to do it myself but found the process complicated and confusing. She talked me through every step and she suggested alternatives that would be easier to use.

I needed a simple drag and drop interface so I could make changes myself so she installed a WordPress page builder and demonstrated how to use it."

Irene Hamilton, Arteriale

"Louise helped me with a refresh of my company website (NKY Consulting). I was extremely pleased with the services Louise provided. She went beyond my expectations with input on the best structure for the wording and images I was updating.

Her communication and understanding of the project was excellent, as was her dedication to complete the project within the desired timeframe."

Aurora is a NodeJS web app that helps to find the best locations for observing the Aurora Borealis in Great Britain. I taught my team how to use source control which resulted in a 50% reduction in merge conflicts.

Having never done any back-end development or database work before, in two weeks I implemented a photo-uploading system (using Node, Express, EJS, MongoDB, Multer and Sharp.)

Attendr (an attendence app for university students) put forth a design and development challenge for the RGUHack2020 hackathon. They wanted an interactive web element to include on their website.

In 24 hours, I developed a mobile web app demo of their Attend Student app for users to interact with which won the challenge and they asked myself and the rest of the team to continue development on a freelance basis.

Needs and Offers is a demand side marketplace where users tell the market exactly what they are looking for, and the market then replies with people who are willing to deliver goods and services.

My project for Hack Quarantine (a COVID-19 themed virtual hackathon) was to create a landing page for Needs & Offers, a web app from San Francisco startup, Drag Labs. I designed the landing page using Adobe XD, taking inspiration from the web app and developed it using HTML, CSS and JS.

I was also one of the top three most active participants out of 5,323 hackers.

NKY Consulting (an accounting consultancy firm in Aberdeen) wanted to refresh the design of their website.

I modified the PHP template files to remove some of the text and replace them with inforgraphics to boost user engagement.

Optimising all the media on the site reduced loading time by 50%.
