Hi, I’m David Allsop,

Web Developer

at Boom.

WordPress Development

I can plan, design and develop bespoke WordPress and WooCommerce functionality for clients who want to optimise their BAU processes.

Front End Web Development

I have a huge amount of front end web development experience having worked on hundreds of projects and contributing towards open source projects means I can seamlessly switch between back and front end tasks when required.

Testing

All development work we produce is fully tested to ensure it meets the business standards and user stories set out by our clients, aiding rapid user acceptance.

About me
My Experience
Over the last 15 years I have worked as a front end and back end web developer, graphic designer, PPC manager, SEO manager, UAT Tester and managed various online shops covering many different industries. During this time, I have been self employed, worked both in-house and in a contractor capacity with multiple agencies, large retailers, SMEs and PLCs providing me with a plethora of experience.

 

I have worked on a variety of software platforms over the years including WordPress, WooCommerce, Hybris, IBM WebSphere, Magento, X Cart, CubeCart, OpenCart, Joomla,  Umbraco, phpBB, Invision Power Board and lots more. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to work with a variety of management styles and currently I’m enjoy working with the Agile software development values and principles.
My Interests
When I’m not creating epic websites for Boom clients, I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and walking my two dogs; Cookie who’s a shy and reserved golden retriever and Wispa, a super energetic, laser pen chasing, bulldozer of a chocolate labrador.

 

I have a keen interest in cars and when the weather allows I enjoy driving my little sporty number; an MG convertible. I intend to buy another fun car soon once I make more room in the garage. I also enjoy playing retro video games and I’ve amassed quite a collection, I’m also partial to watching a bit of football as well as playing five-a-side when I get the chance.
