Jon Ashcroft

About

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 onΒ 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:

πŸ–₯Β  Working web development full time
β˜•Β  Drinking far too much coffee
πŸƒΒ  Telling myself ‘I’ll start running again soon’
🀩  Motivating myself to start a secret side-project
πŸ“Β  Living in Birmingham City Centre
πŸ€”Β  Learning to master ES6
πŸ‘ŸΒ  Deciding which trainers to buy next
πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬Β  Working on a fun little Raspberry Pi project
