BaByliss Pro offer a wide range of professional quality hair and beauty products.

My role in the project was team leader and lead developer. Developing a bespoke Zend Framework based website including a blogging engine, product management, and a social driven style awards section. The design was pixel perfectly constructed using HTML, CSS and jQuery. All content is managed through a custom built CMS to manage every aspect of the website.

Services Possible Expeditions

I specialise in both front-end web development (including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) as well as server side application languages (including PHP and MySQL).

Front End Development

My front-end development utilises standards-based markup and will usually incorporate industry leading open source libraries such as the jQuery javascript library. I am up with the play on all the latest HTML5+CSS3 tom-foolery but have also been around long enough to have spent many a long night debugging IE6 weird issues.

Back End Development

I have extensive experience with off-the-shelf CMS systems such as WordPress, Drupal and Expression Engine but, where necessary, I always prefer to build a website solution from scratch using my framework of choice, Zend Framework.

Not Just A Developer

I have been involved with every step of the process on many different projects at one time or another.

I have also worked with numerous top notch web and interface designers who would be happy to team up with me again should design work be required. Molehill Creations is a full service company.

Should a web development project require more miners down the hole, I have an extensive network of freelancers I work with, and I can assemble the perfect team for your project.

About Moles

Tom

Hi! My name is Tom Peck. I'm the Chief Mole around here.

Great Digging Expertise

Over ten years ago, sometime in 2001, I landed my first web development job. Before this, I had dabbled in HTML and knew a few basic programming languages. I had watched as the the internet came of age and knew without a doubt that this was the direction I would love to head in. I never looked back.

Global Expeditions

Now, after travelling the globe and living in distant lands where I learned new tools and earth moving techniques, I now reside in my home town, Wellington, New Zealand with my extraordinary wife, Gini, and have set up shop.
