Freelance Programmer based in Cornwall
Fort has in-house coding expertise in a number of different languages, libraries and frameworks. We are available to help with different projects where you might need bespoke support, for example in creating new functionality or for creating bespoke coding projects from scratch. We have more than 20 years of combined experience in building different web and mobile applications.
We’d be happy to discuss any coding project which requires the following libraries or frameworks.
Angular 2+ Frontend Framework
We’re excited about the opportunities that Angular 2+ offer. This powerful, Google-backed frontend framework, that leverages Typescript, can be used to create performant and powerful web and native apps. In combination with Angular we use Google’s cloud product ‘Firebase’ to create dynamic applications that can be easily deployed through its global content delivery network. We have also used Angular with deployment through Netlify.
CreateJS (HTML5 Game Engine) Library
All animations have been done in house and spritesheets created through Adobe Animate and TexturePacker. However, as a CreateJS freelance programmer we’re also happy to work with your illustrators and animators whether in Cornwall or wherever they may be.
Liquid was developed by Shopify as a templating language. We’ve used it extensively to create themes with Jekyll - the static site generator.
ActionScript 3 (AS3) Language
We’re passionate about the power of ActionScript3 and have been developing with this API since 2005 - mainly in the field of creating 2D educational games and resources that teach literacy. More recently we’ve used AS3 to create mobile apps using the Starling (the cross platform game engine) and Feathers (responsive user interface components) frameworks - two exciting code libraries which when combined with Adobe AIR allow one code base to run on multiple operating systems (e.g. including iOS and Android). Starling and Feathers maximise the use of device GPU (graphics processing unit) resulting in fast running and smooth applications. We’re available to support freelance AS3 programmer projects across Cornwall and naturally further afield.
We started developing games with AS1, then migrated to the object oriented AS3. All game development prior to 2015 was through Adobe Flash. This extensive Flash experience positions us well for helping you to convert Flash content into HTML5 ready games and applications, bearing in mind that Adobe has announced that browser flash player support will be removed in 2020.
Bootstrap 3, UiKit, Bulma, FxLayout and Material 2 (Sass) Framework
We have used all of the above CSS frameworks to create responsive front end interfaces. In the main this has been in combination with Jekyll or Angular sites and apps. With each project we utilise the power of Sass to minimize the amount of CSS compiled.

RevealJS - the HTML Presentation Framework
As a Cornwall based business we understand how important it is to be able to communicate with clients that are based outside of the County - powerpoint style presentations can be used effectively to support creating awareness and understanding, particularly useful for complex subjects where potential clients need support to better understand the product or service.
Equally, RevealJS could be used to create menu experiences. For example, Cornwall has many restaurants, many of whom rely on PDFs to present their current menu options. A full screen menu would give customers a better experience, encouraging to them to book.
Using RevealJS and acting as a freelance programmer, we can support you in creating animated presentations which are viewable across a multitude of different devices.
We’d love to hear your coding requirements, get in touch and let us know what you’re planning and we can see if we are able to offer you support with your coding projects on a freelance programmer basis. Please note that we’re located in Falmouth in the county of Cornwall but are happy to work with you wherever you may be based.
