About this blog

This blog will discuss various aspects of Web Development. From choosing your technologies and setting up a server, to coding tips and 'must-have' scripts, all aspects of building a web site are ripe for discussion.

Due to the nature of the technologies covered, some of the posts may be quite long, but the aim is to provide an insight into Web Development, and to help out developers who may be moving into new territory.

I'm a Freelance Web Developer, with over 14 years experience. Starting out in HTML, and moving through Classic ASP, I now specialise in PHP and MySQL web sites. Client sites which I develop range from simple static sites to bespoke Content Management Systems and customised Open Source E-commerce solutions. My passion is for attractive, usable, standards compliant, cross-platform web sites.
