Symphony development

I was first introduced to Symphony while working at Airlock, where I worked on sites such as the Teenage Cancer Trust and Road to V.

Symphony is lightweight, flexible, and can be used to build just about anything. It uses XSLT as its template language, which makes it great for developing reusable front-end code. I have built sites using a wide range of contributed extensions, and have also developed my own extensions from scratch using PHP.

The user interface is perfect for clients, which is why I use Symphony for many of my freelance projects.

Please take a look at some of the sites I have developed using Symphony, and get in touch if you would like me to help with a project.
