Solar Orange


Welcome to SolarOrange. This is the online home of Colin Brown. I develop web systems for a company called Sparkdriver. I specialise in a variety of web technologies and groupware systems. I've been working with web technologies for the last 6 years, and programming for more than 16.

If you need a web site, I can help. I specialise in making web sites that work. If you want to define clear objectives and create a web site that is responsive, easy to read and navigate, head on over to Sparkdriver. If you just want to contact me you can do that from here too: send me a message.

If you're not sure what you need, but you are interested to know how technology can help you communicate, collaborate and share knowledge more effectively, lets talk. I have a lot of experience building systems to help people do these things. If you use Lotus Notes, I can design and build applications that get the most out of this "Cadillac of conferencing systems" (who said that?). If you don't, I can still help you work smarter using software that costs nothing.

If you would like to see some examples of my work, check out Handylocals, Whizzy Wheels or the Orange tree.

Web Programmers: if you use Textile, you might be interested in this. I've written a brief guide to using the CVS version control system. If you haven't heard of Zeldman or Bowman, may I gently suggest visiting their sites sometime; they know what they are talking about.
