Stuart Cusack - Web Developer

Hi, I'm Stuart.

I am a qualified programmer from Dublin and I have been building websites and web applications for around 15 years. I am what is known as a full-stack web developer, which basically means that I have all the requisite skills to build and launch fully functional websites and applications. I dabble in design too and I have good understanding of the basic principles of web design.

I work with sole traders and small companies as well as larger organisations and other web design agencies, but unlike web agencies, I do not outsource my work and I personally deal with all of the details of my client's project.

You can read more about my skillset here, and do get in touch if you would like to discuss work.

My Expertise

Web Development

I've been building websites for nearly 20 years and I work with a wide range of back-end and front-end technologies.

My preferred
technologies

GitHub

GitHub is a place to store code and allow developers to collaborate safely. The Git version control system maintains a full history of all changes and contributions made to your applications code. I use it for every project, and I give full code ownership to my clients.

Laravel

Laravel gives web developers super powers. It's an extremely flexible PHP framework that defines sensible structures and common features that 99% of web applications need. I rarely use anything else.

Statamic

Statamic is a modern content management solution that integrates nicely with the Laravel framework. It's a joy to work with for both developers and content managers alike. So long WordPress!

Nova

Nova is a administration panel for Laravel that enables fast building of sophisticated forms, tables and other admin components. It's very powerful and can save a lot of time and money when compared to building custom admin panels.

Tailwind

Tailwind CSS is a game changer for front-end developers and CSS coders. It enables me to rapidly & accurately convert complicated website designs into highly responsive websites. It's easy to work with and optimised to the nines to produce tiny files for the fastest websites.

Bootstrap

Bootstrap CSS may be overshadowed by Tailwind but it's collection of pre-made components can still be great for quickly building user interfaces and administration panels, especially when teamed-up with Vue.js in the BootstrapVue library.

Vue

When I have to write a lot of very complicated JavaScript then I always reach for a good JS framework. Vue.js is my favourite and it can be used to develop complex, highly reactive user interfaces and single page applications.

Livewire

Livewire adds modern reactivity to Laravel websites without writing a single line of JavaScript. It enables me to build highly reactive components in a fraction of the time that it would using a heavyweight JS framework, such as Vue.

Cloud Technology

I work with the best cloud providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Digital Ocean. These technologies make sure your website is always fast and reliable.

Currently on display in my showcase

Ulysses100

To mark the centenary of James Joyce's Ulysses, I was hired to convert a beautiful Figma design into a functional, multilingual website, with all the bells and whistles.

The site is still in development but it's shaping up to be my finest example of how Laravel and Statamic can unleash the power of modern development techniques and replicate complex designs / content structures. I don't believe we could have achieved the same level of quality with WordPress.
