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.
