Who am I?

Who am I?

Hello and welcome! My name is C.S. Rhymes and I'm a full time web developer and a part time author, based in Brackley, Northamptonshire.

I have over ten years experience of web development, from backend php coding specialising in Laravel, to frontend HTML, CSS, Sass & JavaScript, to server configuration and Linux commands.

Web development is great. I really enjoy being able to release my creativity and solve challenges. This creativity then led me into writing. I've written a couple of books that are available on the Amazon Kindle store. Everyone needs a side project!

I write a blog on this site as well as writing on C.S. Rhymes's DEV Profile and Medium.com with technology, web and other random topics, so make sure you check them out too.

He did up his coat and took out his hat and gloves from the pockets before putting them on too.

It was a cold clear night outside, perfect for a fireworks display, but he wanted to ensure he would stay warm. He stepped out of his house and started walking towards the playing fields by the local leisure centre. He noticed a couple of others wrapped up leaving their homes as well. Some held torches to help them see in the areas where the yellow street lights didn’t reach, others had a sneaky hip flask of something strong hidden in their pocket to help warm them up from the inside later.
