About Tim Carr

Tim CarrI’m the founder and sole trader of n7 Studios, with over 9 years experience of Web and WordPress Development. My focus is on technically challenging and rewarding projects, which push WordPress to its limits:

  • Complex e-commerce setups with EDD and WooCommerce
  • High traffic WordPress sites (2 million hits/month+)
  • Large datasets and performance in WordPress (15 million records+)
  • Data scraping, standardisation and APIs through Laravel, with WordPress integration
  • API integrations (payment processors, CRM, mailing lists)
  • Extending WordPress Plugins and functionality (Gravity Forms, User Registration)

My work is a mix of my own projects, and client businesses.  This has included:

  • Lead development for MyEd.com (WordPress, Laravel, third party data, third party integrations)
  • Lead development for two major WordPress Plugins with a mid-6 figures/year USD income
  • Redevelopment and performance maintenance for a 10 million hits/month+ WordPress web site
  • Founder, lead development and maintenance of commercial WordPress Plugins at WP Zinc, WP Simple SEO, WP Affiliate Linker and Media Library Organizer

For those who love technical jargon, my skillset includes:

  • HTML5
  • Javascript
  • Javascript Frameworks: jQuery, Backbone
  • PHP
  • WordPress Development (bespoke themes, plugins, site builds, integrations)
  • WordPress Consultancy
  • WooCommerce
  • Laravel 5
  • TDD

For development workflows, I typically use:

  • Git (SVN for wordpress.org Plugins)
  • Gulp
  • CircleCI / Deploybot
