Professor

Learning new stuff kicks ass. Reading design books, following development tutorials, watching professional presentations, or completing challenging tasks—anything to fill my brain. I want to inspire the passion for learning and creating in others; the best way to do that is to teach.

Thomas was a wonderful mentor during my study of web development. He has aided me in a lot of the daily challenges that I faced as a beginner developer. He also demonstrated a great skill in advising people in the right direction when problem-solving. I would highly recommend Thomas Bradley.

Thomas has an incredible wealth of knowledge which he shares with enthusiasm and excitement. His lessons were extremely relevant to the industry and I reference them often. Thomas is an amazing professor and I would highly recommend him.

An invaluable professor at Algonquin College, Thomas consistently exceeds the expectations of his students. His endless passion for web development is not only contagious, but incredibly motivating. In an ever evolving industry, he does a phenomenal job of modifying his lessons each term to ensure students are learning the very latest web technologies. Without a doubt I highly recommend Thomas.

Wendy Warren, Former Student

I have never met a better or caring teacher. He is knowledgeable and extremely patient with his students. Mr. Bradley spares no effort to find a way to transfer his knowledge to students wanting to learn. Algonquin is fortunate to have such an instructor.

Thomas could be described as a 24-hour support centre, or so that is how he must have felt at times. Whether it is through Twitter, e-mail or in real life, Thomas is always willing to offer his advice and knowledge with any assignments or projects for his students. Now, I am not asking anyone to give him a phone call at 2:00AM in the morning, but you know what I mean. I have come to Thomas with lists of bugs I accumulated in between classes that were answered efficiently and in a welcoming manner. Both his advice and teaching techniques are greatly appreciated, thank you for your understanding, honesty, open mind and passion for what you do, you are a great motivator and mentor!

Developer

Lego rocks my socks! The Open Web Platform is just like Lego blocks: connecting random pieces together in varying imaginative ways to make awesome spaceships web projects. The Web empowers humans in every nook and cranny of the world, and I endeavour to make elegant and accessible web projects—for every human.

Thomas went above and beyond my expectations. Not only was I blown away when he launched my website, but he was also a pleasure to work with. He was readily available at any time; came up with creative, unique solutions to any technical challenges we met; and walked me through the process in a clear, straightforward manner. He is now my go-to person for web development, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to launch a first-rate website.

Combining both creative and analytical skill, Thomas makes an exceptional web developer. He thinks through each task, and is sensitive to the overall objectives of the project. This enables him to provide valuable feedback which improves the quality of the overall deliverable. Great work and great to work with!

Bruce Spurr, Web of Impact

I am so lucky to have found Thomas to create my website! I am overjoyed with the finished product! He is very talented and creative, not to mention caring and very committed to excellent work. His programming skills and design savvy are unsurpassed—he can make anything happen!! He listened attentively to my specifications, then he created a design that is far better than I could have imagined! He was flexible, very professional and punctual throughout the whole process. I really can’t speak highly enough about Thomas; there is no need to look any farther for a web developer—he is the best out there!

Thomas designed the website for Therapeutic Paws of Canada. A non-profit volunteer organization for pet therapy visits. The website needed to be re-built from scratch. Thomas completed the project in a timely manner and was a pleasure to work with in the development of the website. He captured the essence of our organization. The website is very appealing to potential volunteers and donors. Also the site is well structured for TPOC members. The organization is very pleased with the result. We would definitely use Thomas’ services again.

Dian McTaggart, TPOC

Thomas was quick to grasp how I envisioned my site and he was happy to explain any technical questions I had about the whole process and made working together a breeze. I was both amazed and relieved how smoothly everything went and I’m frequently receiving positive comments about the site and was so delighted with the results!

Writer

Words are like ninjas: full of subtlety and surprise. I love reading words, whether they’re in a swashbuckling space opera, in a challenging essay, or in thorough documentation. I create punctuated phrases, either in the English language or in a programming language—the keyboard is my bestie.
