Hire Me for Expert PHP Application Development

If you need a Laravel, Symfony, or other PHP application to work beautifully, let’s talk. I excel at building, testing, maintaining, modernizing and more.

David has rescued my business many times, whenever I’ve needed him. If you want a gifted technologist, look no further.

Fred Meyer, Director, Writers.com

I’m David Hayes: a 20-year veteran PHP developer, steeped in the logical principles behind good code. I love both Laravel and Symfony as PHP frameworks. And I’m familiar with lots of tools and languages across the broader development space.

I’ve used Git, Ruby on Rails, PHP’s Composer, npm, and various JavaScript flavors (including TypeScript). I’ve also worked extensively in WordPress, both authoring custom plugins and overseeing general site builds.

You’ll always work with me directly: no hand-offs within a larger agency or subcontracting here. I’ll deliver you a test-driven, cleanly coded application that works exactly as it’s supposed to. And that can be extended or modified freely by me or someone else for years to come.

Whether you’re got a Laravel or Symfony application, another kind of web project, or just an idea in mind, hire a PHP application developer who knows his stuff. I’m looking forward to meeting you.

Where I’ve Worked

You can find my work on sites like:

  • The Daily Dot: Overhauled advertising software stack; built PHP application to transition 100,000+ pieces of existing content to modern content system.
  • Nautil.us: Transitioned membership system built in legacy CodeIgniter PHP application to modern system.
  • Writers.com: Audited and repaired secure payment system; built custom PHP application to migrate course catalog to new inventory management solution.
