Industry Experience

My experience working in the development industry

Presto Classical

I joined the small in-house team at Presto Classical to work on an exciting opportunity to rebuild their entire website from the ground up. Using symfony components and the more modern PHP 7, including an agile approach to the project, meant this was the obvious choice to continue expanding my career. Since working here I have gained plenty of experience in both the music industry and modern development technologies.
