Let’s Discuss Your Project

Damon McPate - Award-Winning Full-Stack Web Developer

What I Do & Services I Provide

I create full-scale websites and applications for all types of clients and businesses in Glasgow, and across the UK.

Website Design

I can create full-scale websites straight from a blank canvas, to suit the needs of any type of client, which covers the entire process of planning, design, development up to the launch. The websites I deliver are built for performance, accessibility and of course ensuring a seamless user experience.

Web Development

Given my background as a full-stack web developer with a proven track record for developing awesome website applications, I am able to deliver powerful functionality with bespoke coding, database building, API integrations and more... Future proof web applications, both visually and usability

eCommerce Websites

I have been providing clients with full-scale eCommerce websites that allow them to sell their products online, with ease. A combination of a user-friendly shopping experience and a login secured administration dashboad for shop owners to manage everything, including product inventory, orders, payment method management, shipping options / zones and more, running your online shop is super easy.

Custom Programming

I don't just provide websites. I am well versed in a variety of programming languages and technologies for both web application and software builds. I started my coding journey as a software developer in university 15+ years ago where I studied C/C++ and Assembly Machine Language (ASM), which I continued on for web application development that has allowed me to develop the most amazing websites for a variety of industries.

Cloud Architecture

I can guide you through the entire journey into the cloud with a plan of action that gives you the perfect architecture for your needs, implemented on AWS - Amazon Web Services. I will also provide my expert advice, as an independent partner of AWS, on topics such as storage, services & security of the cloud.

Technical Support

I care about every client I work with! It doesn't matter whether they're an individual with a small business or vision, or a large house hold name / brand. Part of that care means I am on-hand to offer expert technical experience when needed. My reputation and feedback from clients which you can find online spans over 15+ years with nothing but amazing things said for reasons, and this is certainly one of them.

Damon’s work was exceptional. He communicated clearly and performed exactly as I requested. When unexpected issues developed he clearly explained what needed to be done to continue moving forward. He also took the extra time to educate me on the process we were working on. This was a perfect collaboration! I couldn’t ask for a better member of the team. I will work with him again.

WOW! A talent and attitude that is the rock ‘n roll of websites

This is the man to use, so many long winded people out there who are not able to deliver especially in the website world. Required some complicated website work along with fixing some issues fast that needed outside thinking to bring a sensible solution to the table. The guy was so easy with communication; the perfect way for us going forward after a few disasters from previous clients before finding this gem. Work was done in rapid time and issues resolved quicker than we expected. Without hesitation, we will be using Damon again. From our experience, he is a highly recommend professional.

Excellent work from Damon on this project! So much in fact that from now on he will always be the first developer I contact, especially after countless difficult experiences with bad freelancers I sourced elsewhere. He seemed to work around the clock to get the project finished and I was impressed with his excellent communication skills — from start to finish of the project (including weekends), along with additional after support when I need it, no matter what time of day it is. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an expert web developer.
