Robin Metcalfe is a web developer and programmer based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
After graduating from Edinburgh University with a degree in Computer Science, Robin went on to discover the wealth of options available to a programmer on the web, and started building his first websites as a hobby shortly after graduation.
Following a period of time spent working alongside other developers and creatives in an agency setting, Robin set up Solarise Design, and started exploring new technologies and techniques to bring to website development.
“I love the creative process involved in web development, and from the start of a project through to the end, I enjoy the challenges that come up along the way.”
Specializing in development for Wordpress, a powerful and highly customisable content management system, Laravel, a super-flexible development framework for building complex web apps and custom PHP development, Robin can work on systems from the ground-up as well as existing sites based on either custom code or templates.
Chasing the trends
Web development is a rapidly changing industry, and keeping up with the latest technologies is important. At the same time, there are tried-and-tested techniques which can be used to make sure that sites are built solid and sound.
Robin is always on the lookout for projects which give him the opportunity to build on his knowledge and explore new ways of promoting content on the web.
“I’ve worked with a diverse range of clients over the years on projects spanning a wide range of business sectors, including complex data management systems for international logistics firms, hotel booking systems connecting to the TripAdvisor API and technical project builds for startups.”
