My name is Dave and I'm a web developer by trade. I code using PHP Storm in PHP and quite often CakePHP, along with all the other general web bits such as HTML, CSS and Javascript. You'll also catch me using Sass, jQuery and Twitter Bootstrap. I even use Vagrant occasionally.

I work on OS X and Ubuntu usually, but sometimes Windows 10. It's the code that counts, but it's hard to beat native bash support.

Why this blog?

So I wanted a place to store thoughts and snippets on coding, technology and other bits. Where better than Github? Where most of my code lives. I have some over at BitBucket.org also.

I used to have a TiddlyWiki which lived in my Dropbox, but then I moved a few bits to Github Gists before deciding to create this micro-blog.
