My name is Daniel Hanly and I am a PHP & Cross-plaform Application Developer from Pontypridd in South Wales. I have a tremendous passion for developing in a range of languages and for bringing large-scale projects through their full development lifecycle into a production environment.

I am highly capable and a quick learner, always bringing fresh ideas, out-of-the-box thinking and the ability to adapt my professional skills to any project requirement.

I'm most proficient with Objective-C and PHP, with strong support skills from HTML5, CSS, MySQL and JavaScript (jQuery). I develop websites with WordPress and CakePHP, and Apps with X-Code and Unity3D.

How do you mean a button? You mean box it up perhaps, darken the background and 'fill' the arrow to look more like the example above?

comment Sliding Drop Down Menu Icon - How do I make it more obvious?
iPod Style menu! I knew there was a comparison somewhere, couldn't think! The issue with making the whole line clickable is that the actual menu option also directs to a page, i.e. in the example above: 'About' represents a page in itself, as does each of it's sub-options.

comment What should be the default option of a required dropdown list?
As I've said in Michaels comments, I agree partly with his answer for trivial values, but not for anything that would make difference to the user. If the most common answer was already selected this'll save the user a great deal of time

comment What should be the default option of a required dropdown list?
An example of this would be if your website or program was mostly UK targeted then putting UK in the country drop down would be acceptable - not for any important fields however "I want to give my children away to a stranger"

comment What should be the default option of a required dropdown list?
I agree with this for trivial answers but not for important answers. Your second point resonates here - saving 79.1% of your users the time to do something but giving the most common as default is good practice
