Myles and Dave sketch ideas with a pen and paper.

David sketching out ideas with Myles.

Whether we’re brainstorming our next big idea, conducting on the ground research for a new project, or visiting our clients – it’s never a dull day at Magpie. Today, David tells us about a typical day as a web developer.   

Hello, I’m David and I’m one of the web developers here at Magpie. My job is to convert the beautiful work created by our designers into fully functioning, responsive websites using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP. Sometimes I’ll get involved with the design process creating wireframes and helping the designers to understand what’s possible for a certain site. I like to introduce the team to new developments in web design to make sure our sites are cutting edge!

You’re most likely to find me…

Combing through lines of code for that stray semi-colon that’s stopping my function from working!

The best part of my day is…

Finding a solution to something. Sometimes the answer is elusive, but we always get there in the end.

Not your usual day in the office…

Anything can happen at Magpie, but trying to knock down plastic cups with tennis balls in tights attached to my head definitely springs to mind!
