Alfie & Pebbles

Alfie and Pebbles


I’m Dave Brotherton and Quantic Computers is the company through which I do freelance development work. Quantic Computers could be considered a ‘one man and his dog’ company, apart from the fact that I actually have two dogs, Alfie and Pebbles. I’ll include a picture here, as they are, frankly, rather beautiful.

I undertake analysis, programming and database development work. In recent years I have mainly been concentrating on the web.

My strengths are on the technical, rather than design, side. I can:

  • set up a website for you (and arrange the hosting and domain registration, if required);
  • set up a site that you can add content to yourself, once it is created;
  • develop the parts of a site that need scripting and/or a database to work properly (most interactive parts of websites require development of this type, although for commonly used functions, such as on-line retail, a suitable ‘out-of-the-box’ solution will often have been developed already).
As for design, I can produce a site like this one (that doesn’t contain much graphics); I can incorporate any graphics and photos that you already have into your site; and I can get the occasional bit of design done by a proper designer. But, if you need strong corporate branding, with plenty of graphic design, then you’re probably better off going to a web designer, rather than a web developer.
