Welcome to liammills.co.uk, my name is Liam Mills & I am a frontend web developer residing and working in Kent in the UK.
After I gained a BSc in Multimedia, Technology and Design from the University Of Kent, I have obtained 9 years experience in the web development industry in which I now focus on frontend technologies.
In my career, I strive everyday to improve my knowledge in all avenues I can with web development, trying to implement new technologies while providing the best experience from all websites and applications I create.
Here are a selection of the technologies I use to craft sites and applications: PHP, WordPress, HTML, CSS, SCSS, Twig, JS, jQuery, Bitbucket, Grunt, Craft CMS, Sketch, Adobe CC; Depending on each job I can alter the technologies I use. Previously I spent nearly a year using Adobe ColdFusion in a commercial setting, and my latest branch of independent study is towards React & React Native, in which I hope to further my commercial experience with soon.
Due to most of my previous website builds being created while under employment for various companies, I cannot disclose a full list of my work due to NDAs. Feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss my experience further, also below I describe the various companies I have worked for to gain my 9 years experience as a web developer.
Look below to see a select list of work from my portfolio:
A friend of my father asked, when he was starting a new business venture, whether I would help create the online identity for his company. Mr Rose wanted me to design and develop the whole site, in which the only guidelines that were set on the job were for the main colour to be blue and that the site should work elegantly on mobiles, tablets and computers.
“Rosewood Installations are a division of The Lifecare Centre. The Lifecare Centre has been established in Dartford Kent since 1998 and the management has been involved in the industry for over 25 years. Our fully qualified staff strive to offer the best the best solutions, products and services where possible.”Paul Rose
In the run up to this build I wanted to see if there was an alternative to responsive design, so I decided to experiment with device detection. The reason I wanted to try device detection was so that if you are mobile or tablet, you can get a streamlined and efficient mobile site that is not slowed by loading all the unneeded HTML, JS and CSS elements that are usually just hidden on mobile. Also I feel that this way the user feels that the site is tailored for each device separately and shows it has been thought out thoroughly.
The technologies I used to create this site were: PHP, HTML5, jQuery, CSS, mobile-detect.php, GIMP, notepad++.
I spent my whole secondary education at Axton Chase, where I excelled in mathematics and computing throughout.
From my studies at Axton, I gained twelve GCSEs (All A to C grade), two AS levels & two A Levels which gave me the oppurtunity to carry on higher education with my university studies.
The course taught me the practical application of many skills from the wide and varied field of multimedia, but while I was there I really fell in love with web development.
