Projects:

Sevenoaks Town Council - Sevenoaks Town Council required a custom built CMS (content management system) to allow the council to manage and share their events, councillor profiles and documents. This links remotely with the Sevenoaks Town Partnership to list the council responsibilities with a custom API. This project was built using the Laravel PHP framework.

Sevenoaks Town Partnership - Sevenoaks Town Partnership was a very ambitious project which required me to create a custom built CMS which allows the council to create and manage events and pages under a number of headings; of which some have their own sub categories. This project also required visitors to be able to create an account to be able submit pages about their own businesses for admin approval before becoming live. All this information was fed dynamically to new homepage news feeds, calendar, an interactive Google Map and is searchable via the sites search box. The project also required several Cron jobs to run at regular intervals in order to send mail and query the database on user submissions to alert the admin staff. This project was built with base PHP (without a framework).
