Business Development Specialists

Introducing the most technical member of our team;

anton web developerAnton Hinxman is our web developer and heads up our Website Host Management Team.

Anton develops client benefit through the use of websites, intranet applications and databases together with their hosting. Some 30 years ago he started his career as a games programmer with WH Smiths releasing his work. Soon afterwards he followed on with formal qualifications in COBOL Programming and then with System Analysis. More recently, he has added Sun Java Certification (version 1.4) and then the Open University Web Applications Certificate. Even after 30 years, he still retains the same passion to be creative.

Anton has developed and delivered both simple and complex business applications. He has worked as part of a companies’ team or individually.
He is not stressed by the high financial consequences as you can find his programming logic in the core of systems handing well over three million pounds a day. Anton is equally happy with big or small projects. He always finds the time to get the detail right for the smallest task.

As a contractor he has worked with many development languages and technologies and his IT skills have been gained over many years. His programming skills can be applied against the typical urgent ‘drop of a hat’ type of task such as database import/export routines or database recovery. He can offer unique data intelligence advantage to the management process through programming, or creatively collating, a new view of your business data. Alternatively, he can develop a whole application from the ground up. So his skills range from the urgent ‘fix and rescue’ to the complete application lifecycle of: requirements analysis, functional design, programming, unit testing, client acceptance and client hand over.

Current development languages: LAMP hosting, PHP development, MySQL databases, Joomla MVC components, CodeCharge, WordPress and Laravel implementations.

Jules White comments: “Anton always believes in adding value to businesses and will always provide the best advice for the client, not the bank account! Having access to Anton’s skills and expertise has meant adding considerable value to our services and ultimately benefiting our clients exponentially.”
