Hi I'm Alfie Loakes as a Web Developer and second year Computer Science student studying at De Montfort University.

As a Web Developer, I believe that you need to bridge the bridging the gap between engineering and design — combining my technical knowledge from my degree with a keen eye for detail this leads to a product that not only functions but creates an enjoyable experience for the user.

About Me

As a Web Developer, I believe that you need to bridge the bridging the gap between engineering and design — combining my technical knowledge from my degree with a keen eye for detail this leads to a product that not only functions but creates an enjoyable experience for the user. My goal is to always create applications that are efficient and engaging on all devices.

When I'm not in front of a computer screen, I'm usually playing Cricket, Travelling and spending time with friends.

Experience

Astley Marketing

Freelance

Astley Marketing

Oct 2017 - Present

I joined Astley Marketing just before the start of my first year at university which gave me a great opportunity to work in an industry that I would like to persue a career in. It also allowed me to apply my knowledge learnt at university to the workplace, offering me a valuable insight into the way in which a web development agency is managed. During my time at the company I was able to apply my knowledge of SQL and object oriented programming. I quickly grasped web systems such as Opencart and WordPress to create E-commerce sites quickly and easily. We also used our own content management system to manage sites, offering me unique experience in independent systems.

Freelance Web Developer

Oct 2017 - Present

Whilst studying at college I was able to learn basic web development in my free time. While building my knowledge, I began creating websites for small businesses in my local area. This was a big learn- ing curve, helping me to develop my technical skills and my ability to effectively communicate with clients.

De Montfort Uni

Sept 2017 - Present

At DMU I have gained expirence using a wide range of programming languages including Java, Scala, Haskell and PHP. This has given me a solid understanding of different languages in perticular object oriented languages.
