Hi, my name’s Ben. I live in England and I write code for lots of different things.
I’m the IT manager for a wholesale Christmas tree supplier, so that’s mainly website work for our retail sites and general IT busy work, but once in a while they let the shackles off and I get to work on an app, game, or something fun in another medium. I have a degree in Computer Science and I did a bunch of fun stuff to get that, too.
Away from my job I like to work on mobile games and some other bits of general tinkering and learning. More often than not I build weird little things that solve a specific problem I have with the intent to re-use some of the code in a future public project, but most of the time I apparently just have weird program requirements.
When I’m AFK I’m either playing Xbox, one of my guitars, or just reading and trying to make sense of the internet. I’m also a slightly obsessive Microsoft watcher and fan, regular viewer of Windows Weekly on TWiT and nostalgic for things most people don’t know existed. Oh, and I like baking delicious cakes… because when was the last time you were offered cake and said no?
That’s about it. Wanna know about something? Well I’m gonna put a message form up soon, but you can also grab me on Twitter.
[ Sneaky final note: This swanky new website I made isn’t quiiite finished, so you might find some dodgy bits here and there. Bear with me. ]
