About me

I'm Paul Jacques and I build web things. I'm based in the village of Thornton in Bradford, West Yorkshire. I have many years of commercial experience, I coded my first html page in the mid 1990's using nothing but Notepad. Things have changed a lot since then. I've had many job titles in my career: Web Designer, Web Developer/Systems Engineer, Internet Technologies Developer, Web Systems Developer, Web Programmer, and most recently Software Developer.

The common factor across all these jobs, is that they all involved building web things in one form or another. Fortunately, I love building web things and I'm not afraid to try new things, be it a new programming language or web technology. I also have an interest in UX and UI.

When I'm not working on web things or entertaining my children or enjoying a family day out, I relax by brewing my own beer and fruit wines (and drinking it), attending beer festivals, reading, avoiding DIY (not always possible) and visiting castles.
