Part Time Web Development with Full Time Care

Do you have a web app that's mission critical but doesn't require a full time developer?

In trying to hire a part time web developer, have you been frustrated by:

Flaky unresponsive freelancers distracted by their full time job? When you call, nobody answers! Your business gets put at risk from expensive downtime and you get frustrated.

A revolving door of freelancers who do a little work and then leave when something "better" comes along? Onboarding costs add up and technical knowledge is lost!

I run Less Boring Solutions: Receive part time web development with full time care.

David Colgan I'm David Colgan, and I've been doing part time web development as my full time job professionally since 2010.

I only take less than full time jobs so you get my full attention. No waiting until evenings or weekends to hear from me. No mysterious disappearances or leaving you hanging.

Services I offer:

  1. Custom Development - From scratch, or taking over when your previous dev ran away, I'm available for 10 to 20 hours a week to build your webapp.

  2. On-call Ongoing Maintenance - Your mostly finished app is in good hands as I keep it up to date and am on-call to fix it if it breaks, along with occasionally adding a new feature or two.

  3. Code Reviews for your lone developer - Increase the quality of your code base, plus increase the bus factor of your app from 1 to 2. I'll review all commits by your lone developer to be able to take over in the event they leave and even train your new developer with that technical knowledge I've been safeguarding.

Over the course of 3 years, I built an internal use only webapp that progressively automated more and more of the Flagship Enterprise Center microloan program's day to day activities.

Thanks to this system, Flagship doubled their loan program every year without needing to hire any additional loan officers.

Musik and Film: Rescuing the Email Promotions System from Misguided Automatic Spam Flaggers

Stephen Wrench came to me with an app on fire. With an initial emergency rescue operation I got the app that runs his entire business working again quickly. Then through ongoing maintenance, I tuned the legacy codebase so that now it runs better than ever before.
