welcome to olivertual.com

My name is Oliver Tual. I use this site as a test platform for the work I do. I am a self employed web designer/developer. I am originally from England, but moved to Australia when I was young. I am currently living in Colombia in South America.

This website is a work in progress. I am constantly changing and tweaking the content and layout to demonstrate the skills I am accumulating. I recently added the search box next to the menu and a news ticker which reads the latest football news from the BBC Sport website and scrolls it using jQuery. While I can't take credit for the actual scroller, I have made some customizations to the way it works, and incorporated a cross-domain XML solution for the actual content.

This website is built using the Codeigniter framework. A flexible system which allows easy and rapid website development using resources which are both intuitive and powerful.
