Viperfish Media is the home of independent web developer John Pitchers. Based in Western Australia, John is recognised as a niche specialist in thehaving worked with Joomla almost exclusively since it's inception in 2005. John has been building websites for businesses in Perth, and across Australia, since 2001.
I am good at building Joomla based websites but so are many other people. I am not the cheapest and I am probably not the quickest. But, there is one good reason you should consider hiring me for your next project.
I do what I say I'm going to do.
That's it. You see, every week I get requests to quote on jobs that are fix-ups or rescue jobs. It still amazes me how many people shell out money to so called developers only to end up with a broken or completely unusable website. We've even had people tell us their developer has simply disappeared, gone back to Uni or got a "real" job.
If this has been your experience then you have come to the right place. This is all I do. Every day. I love it and care about the quality of what I produce.

Where I am based
This is where I work from. I have a home office in Baldivis and it has has been my place of work full time since 2004. Here's a little history. Sometimes working from home is like living at work. It's hard to switch off when work is in the next room. But, I'll let you in on a secret... web developers don't sleep. There's always work to do and new technology to learn. The home office that's open 24/7 is perfect for an obsessive compulsive code monkey :)
At first, Viperfish was just a cool name. Every incarnation of the Viperfish website has featured a version of this grotesque fish somewhere in the layout. It is incredibly ugly but it's got personality and in many ways the Viperfish is a metaphor for the solitary life of a successful independent web developer.
It is a solitary creature, living in the deep depths of the ocean. When prey gets too close - attracted to it's luminous photophore - it attacks with speed and precision. Even though it is a small fish in a very big ocean it is extremely efficient and makes the most of it's opportunities.
Yeah, that. But, mostly it's just a cool name.
