PHP Web Development from the Cowshed
Firstly, why mention UK in the title, why does that matter? The answer is simply that we want to make it clear that everything coded at Cowshed Works is completed right here in our premises in Staffordshire in the West Midlands, right slap bang in the centre of the UK.
We don't 'farm out' web development work to cheap development companies in other countries and then sell the work on at a premium. We've worked at UK based web companies building websites and applications for major global hotel chains, we've worked in UK FTSE 100 companies and we've worked at the major consultancy firms in London, we're UK based, did we say that?
How do we develop PHP applications?
Front end development is generally based on a combination of Bootstrap, JQuery and VueJS. We're able to use other JS / CSS frameworks including Angular JS, Ember JS, React and Bulma. We tend to avoid jumping on every framework bandwagon as it's mentally draining learning a new framework to achieve the same things your current framework already does.
The scope of development projects we can take on is very broad; here's a list of some of the things we've built:
