Hi! My name is Richard and I’m a freelancing full stack web developer based in New Zealand. My focus is on building websites and web applications for educational, environmental and human rights causes.

I began programming when I was a teenager making websites for fun. To build this hobby into a professional career I completed a BE in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Eventually this lead into working in software full time. Since 2007 I have been working for various software companies, then for the last few years I have been working as a remote web developer building websites for small businesses and organisations.

My development philosophy is based on using modern open source tools to enable quick and quality production ready solutions while keeping costs low and the scope within focus. Specifically I am experienced in using React, Backbone, Node, Express, Jquery for Javascript purposes and have done plenty of PHP projects with Laravel. Happy to take on projects within a similar scope.

If you are needing a developer for a upcoming project then get in touch hello@richardflett.com, or find me on github - https://github.com/rdoc101
