Well – this the standard subject of a first post or first task when using a new coding language, so I’ll leave it here. Welcome to my blog site.
I’m Mark Allen, a freelance web developer based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire in the UK. I’ve been involved in IT for over 30 years as an analyst/programmer, systems administrator, technical writer, copywriter, and web coder.
In recent years I’ve been combining working from home, primarily as a copywriter, with raising my kids. Now that they’re older I’m starting work as a full-time freelance web developer.
This blog is about that process, including the technical challenges I encounter, reviews of software and training I use, and the personal projects I take on to stretch my skills. For my work portfolio – see my main website: markallenwebdeveloper.co.uk
