Welcome to my blog. For those of you who are regular visitors, you will have seen this site change several times. I believe that I am finally getting to grips with having a blog, and having a subject to blog about.

This site has turned into my book of I.T. related references and snippets that I have collected over the years. I have found it easier to write quick references here, and then search for it at a later date.

My current role is Development Team Lead at a Tech Company in Brighton, UK. My role there is focused more towards the front end side of web developement, which is slightly different from the IT Departments and full stack work I have worked on in the past. So it is a big driving force with regards what tools that I work with.

If you've visited this website in the last 5 years (pre 2024), you would have found a Wordpress version of the blog.

My recent focus has been around moving it away from a Wordpress and more towards a more modern stack. So I've gone with Sanity.io and NextJs.

So far it seems like a good choice. It's been much easier to add features and to make changes. The biggest task seemed to be moving all the previous blog posts over to Sentry and making sure they all were all formatted correctly.

My idea for this site continues to be that as I learn something new, I should write about it here, to prove that I understand it. Also, as I build things I find cool and interesting, I want to be able to share them here, as my own kind of online portfolio.

The subjects on here are going to be ever changing. Depending on the time and the technologies that are being used at the time. For instance, in this moment, they are most likely going to be about JavaScript Node, NextJS, Vite, to go along with the HTML and CSS stuff that will probably be a staple. Also, I'm currently taking two online courses in Unity and White Hat Hacking. So anything I find interesting in those may make it onto this site.

If you find just one of the topics that I post here useful, then this site will be worthwhile.

Be warned, there will probably be times where I go a long time between posting.
