Fitsolve is the trading name of Paul Wilkin, freelance web developer based in Norwich, UK. I have been developing websites since 2007 and I am always looking to bring my experience to exciting new projects. I work hard and with genuine enthusiasm to get the job done.
You can see some of the sites I have created as a freelancer on this site. I have also worked as a contractor for http://www.theuniprogroup.com/
I was contracted to develop an enterprise-level system for a well-known brand.
I have also worked at the British Council www.britishcouncil.org on converting their websites to Drupal 7.
I build using Open Source technologies such as PHP and MySQL on Linux, and have extensively used the Zend Framework, jQuery, AJAX and Drupal.
I use MySQL Workbench http://www.mysql.com/products/workbench/ to model databases graphically and I find it a useful productivity tool.
However, these days I am increasingly using Doctrine 2 to provide transparent persistence of PHP entities within my systems. I need to describe my databases in terms of Doctrine entities and associations. I can do all that by hand, however this is not a pleasant prospect for large databases.
There is a tool that creates your Doctrine entities for you via the PHP command line.

I'll be trying it out for size over the next few days!
An online magazine with full content management was the requirement. Drupal 6 was the answer! I provided customised modules to link with Freebase to enable the downloading of data and the automatic construction of nodes for famous composers.
Creating a website that shows off a photographers' work. It needed to look stylish without diverting too much attention from the photos!
I created the website with jQuery to display the galleries and Drupal to allow the photographer to manage the content themselves.
A website to promote a sports club with some action shots. They wanted the ability to maintain their own blog and an interactive tutorial.
I also provided integration with the Google Maps API so that people could find their way to the venue with driving directions.
