Jamie Ward — Web Design & Development

Jamie Ward

Hello, I'm Jamie Ward, a web developer from Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire, England. I design & develop websites for small businesses and organisations, focusing on lightweight, mobile-friendly, and easy to update sites. I use a combination of my imagination, my 9 years of experience, and best practices to create simple, yet powerful websites. I use a bespoke content management system that I have been working on to allow my clients update their own websites with ease.

Out with the old, in with the new!

Posted on 28 Dec 2017

With the new year drawing ever closer, I have decided it's time to move forward with my work and learning.

I've recently cleared out my office/storeroom of all the old hardware that I have collected over the years, PC's, laptops, servers equipment, and a whole bunch of networking gear. After writing up a list of all the gear I have, it comes just short of 7 A4 pages! My plan is to sell what I can to upgrade my current setup for work, and donate the rest to good causes.

Over 2018 I'm hoping to become familiar with many new web development and design techniques, as well as brushing up on some of the other things I have learnt in the past, such as SASS and things such as Webpack. I'm also aiming to get blogging a lot more, and sharing the new things I have been playing around with, and what I have created.

I'm also planning to work on a Raspberry Pi project to create a semi-autonomous vehicle that I hope to use to participate in my local(ish) PiWars. I will be recording the full build and coding here for others to follow along with, as well as to share ideas.

Wishing all my customers, past, present and future customers/readers a brilliant 2018!
