Created with Sketch.

Hey! I’m Tim MacDonald, a freelance software developer based in Wagga Wagga (regional New South Wales), Australia. Thanks for dropping by!

I am a freelance software developer building quality software solutions for projects large and small. My passion is Laravel (PHP) web apps that connect and talk with mobile iOS and Android apps. If you have a problem and would like to talk about how a custom software solution could help automate and alleviate the issue, please do get in touch with me.

If you are looking for a corporate website - don’t look any further - I haven’t lost my knack for that. Feel free to drop me a line and we can discuss your needs and work out a solution to suit.

From The Top

For several years, a friend and I ran Wagga Wagga Web, a corporate web development business. The business focused mainly on Wordpress projects, but took on anything we could get our hands on. Having produced my share of business websites, I decided it was time to break out of the world of corporate website development using platforms like WordPress and embrace more full-featured frameworks like Laravel to produce web based apps.

I landed a position working with the Wiradjuri Condobolin Corporation (WCC) on their language revitalisation program, building software to help preserve and maintain Indigenous languages throughout Australia. During my time there I built them native iOS and Android apps that interact with a Laravel API back-end, as well as a web front-end. The system has been built as a cookie cutter so additional languages can benefit from these tools and have their own apps produced rapidly.

After developing the language software system while working at the WCC, I decided it was time to go out on my own and start helping other local and national clients create software solutions to help automate and make their business more productive. I now specialise in web and mobile app development and have clients locally and nationally…so I guess it turned out worked out pretty well 😎

Community Involvement

I very much enjoy being apart of the Wagga (and regional) developer community whenever possible. Hoping to add a few more notches to the belt over the coming years, but here are a few things to get started:

If you have an event on and are looking for someone with my skills to help out, I’d love for you to reach out and let me know about it.

The Blog

Having never blogged and not having a large local developer community to be apart of, I’ve decided to jump into the blogging world and have also started a local developer Meetup for the Riverina…we’ll see how they both pan out! Wish me luck, I’ll need it!

My articles are just general musings of things I’ve stumbled upon along the way through my learning and exploration of the Laravel framework, PHP, and any front-end / iOS / Android goodies I manage to get my hands on / head around.
