Hi, I'm Ben.|

I'm an aspiring software engineer from Hereford, England, with a fondness for front-end technologies.

 

Skills

I have had experience working with the following languages and frameworks...

Having completed a Full-Stack engineer course, I have a sound knowledge of back-end technologies such as NodeJS.

I'm in my <element> when it comes to the core, fundamental languages in web development: HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The site you're on now is an example of that, built with no frameworks in mind.

About me

After working as a System Administrator for 10 years, I decided I wanted to learn about how the software I was working with actually worked under the bonnet. That led me into the fun, creative, fascinating world of web development.

Front-end is my thing, I love writing clean, consisent, legible code - whether it be a single-page application using HTML, CSS and JavaScript (or React), or a server-side applet with NodeJS or C# for fun.
