If you are building any type of system that interacts with the web, or have an idea for a mobile app, then I can help you achieve your vision. Development can be done on a fixed-fee or hourly/daily rate from your company's offices or remotely. See below for ways to get in touch, or just email adam dot forsythecheasley at gmail dot com.

- Developed an award winning e-mentoring platform, built with Python and backed by ZODB and MySQL. This system was scaled up to handle over 80,000 monthly active users.
- Designed and built an HTTP API for a large scale ecommerce site. The API was built using Django REST Framwork.
- Technical lead on the “self-service” exchanging system for Prezola.com. This enabled end users to exchange gifts for credit, massively reducing strain on the customer service department.
- Large, existing web apps brought up to WCAG 2.1 AA compliance with a full accessibility focused overhaul on all markup.
- Worked as part of the team which designed and built the intraCORE intranet CMS.
- Contributed to the design and build of Plone Intranet's groups/workspace functionality. As part of this, I made many contributions to collective.workspace.
- Designed and built a search application for a complex dataset, backed by ElasticSearch.
- Core contributor to the open source CMS Plone, including major contributions to plone.api.
- Integrated mobile apps with web backends, to provide a full app ecosystem.
