My part in the story

We approached Matt used his experience and technical knowledge to guide us through the process of turning a pipeline idea into a reality. He built from scratch a brilliantly presented and functional website which incorporated every little detail we asked for, including tools that we didn’t know were possible. I would highly recommend Matt for any project you want developing and building. He’s solution focused and dedicated to his craft.

Charles Montier - Co-founder Wilderness Now

I was approached by Wilderness Now to build the first iteration of their product, a place to book a wide variety of exciting adventures around the UK. The biggest technical challenge was to build a messaging system for guides and bookers to commuicate within the product. This was built on top of the Mailgun API for sending and receiving email messages. I then worked with Greg Tiley and Pete Goodman to build out the frontend. Together we developed a framework for building component libraries within a Django project, take a look at it on Github. Finally integration with Stripe was added to provide a smooth booking process.
