Christopher Ryan Delport

full stack php / javascript developer


Very few people in this world get to wake up and be excited to do what they do

for a living. I am happy to be one of them :) Even after 15 years in the

development industry.

I am a full stack PHP and Javascript developer, specialising in object-oriented

programming using the latest technologies and industry standards.

My experience ranges from developing large scale applications in

Laravel/Symfony or building custom libraries, to writing full stack Javascript

applications with AngularJS and NodeJs.

I am a huge fan of TDD and Agile methodologies and work extremely well in a

fast paced environment. Also, I firmly believe as a programmer you can never

learn enough so am constantly improving my skillset and love to share my

knowledge with others.

Over the years I have developed projects in various industries (tourism, retail,

real estate, gaming, transport, colleges, photography, engineering) and have

worked with some major brands like Chevrolet, Isuzu, Ackermans,

SA National Parks Board, Disney, Bells, Johnnie Walker and Harley Davidson.

I have worked with Ryan for 3 years now, and

we have undertaken various projects and

implementations during that time. I must say

that Ryan is incredibly friendly and easy to

work with, able to communicate well and

work alone without supervision whilst

producing impeccable results. His skillset far

surpasses his ocial title, and even when

tasked with technology out of his scope, he

always learns and provides results time and

time again. Any organisation lucky enough to

have Ryan will have a strong team player and

a creative technical resource.
