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.
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.
