I am Richard Barran, a freelance web developer based in Bordeaux, France.
I specialise in creating websites with the popular Django web framework, and more generally in writing Python code. I work mostly as part of a team on larger projects, and occasionally as an independent web developer, creating turnkey sites for customers.
I have been working with Django since 2007. Over the period 2007-2015 I was based in London; in 2015 I moved to France; I currently work full-time on a remote basis for a London-based startup.
I play to the strengths of the Django framework, specialising in sites that require a significant amount of customisation: e.g. complex data structures, interfacing with third-party systems, internationalisation. A self-proclaimed code monkey, I am flexible and can code, configure servers, write frontend code, talk to end users & interpret their requirements, design systems, and more.
I have contributed over many years to several open-source projects, especially:
- As maintainer of django-photologue since 2012.
- Author of django-minipub.
- Co-maintainer of django-fiber since 2017.
Please contact me if you have a Django-related project underway.
See my portfolio for some examples of sites that I have created/that I maintain. I can advise and help you develop your website, drive more traffic and generate more revenue.
