Hey! I’m Jon Ashcroft, a web developer from Birmingham, UK. I started getting into making websites as a hobby around 2006, but only started to pursue it seriously as a career in 2014 after taking some time to figure out what I really wanted from life.
I’m currently working for a great agency in Birmingham, and have the privilege to work on some pretty incredible projects & clients. I do genuinely love the world of web development and every day is a positive learning experience.
I consider myself a creative & curious person: Whether it’s finding new music, discovering great places to eat, taking photos, manipulating API data, learning something new – I want to do it all.
I’m trying to be more active on my blog because I want to give back to the community that has taught me so much – this also extends to being more active on GitHub.
What I’m doing now:
🖥 Working web development full time
☕ Drinking far too much coffee
🏃 Telling myself ‘I’ll start running again soon’
🤩 Motivating myself to start a secret side-project
📍 Living in Birmingham City Centre
🤔 Learning to master ES6
👟 Deciding which trainers to buy next
👩🔬 Working on a fun little Raspberry Pi project
