PHP Developer (Contract)

Carphone Warehouse Online Solutions
(4 months)Loughborough

I was contracted by The Carphone Warehouse to develop a reporting system to improve the company's Business Intelligence.

Using techniques learned from my previous Zend Framework 2 experience I created back-end code to interpret programmatic structured queries to three different reporting sources (MySQL, MongoDB, Google Analytics). I then constructed a report design and configuration approach using XML to create reports that would create programmatic structured queries. A UI was then developed so that users could design their own reports and reporting widgets. I then developed front end code to render reports with widgets, on-the-fly filtering, sorting, exporting to PDF and other formats, and user reporting dashboards.
