Web design & development

I've been making websites almost as long as such things existed. Designing for a constantly moving target can be rather a disquieting task, but since discovering ProcessWire (the veritable dark horse of content management frameworks) and putting a concerted effort into learning PHP and Javascript, building websites has become pleasurable again.

You read every now and then that computer code is the language of our times, and I think there's an element of truth in that. Thanks to a forward-thinking father, I was encouraged to start writing code at six years old. For me, the first practical use of such knowledge was in the early days of the internet. Back then there weren't really "professional web developers" as such—HTML was relatively simple and if you knew the principals of programming you could pick it up pretty quickly. And that's how it's always been for me: I just picked it up as I went along. After a few years break, I'm back at it again... setting up my own servers and adding PHP and JavaScript to my coding arsenal.
