About

I'm a keen boulderer, and climb regularly at Craggy2.

I blog about programming and web development topics at Sorcerer's Tower.

I love to tinker with everything and anything.

I'm a big fan of regex; one of the most under-used and mis-used tools programmers have.


HTML is a computer language used to provide content and meaning for websites.

It is an acronym for Hypertext Markup Language; Hypertext describes the web's link-based nature, whilst markup describes it's use for "marking" the data (content) with semantics (meaning).

You might notice a lot of buzz about HTML5 - the version number is meaningless, but it basically represents the industry's drive to to update and improve HTML as a language, by providing functionality which it should have already had since 2000.
