Hi I'm John, although many people know me as just 'JB'. I'm a digital marketing consultant and software developer based in Taunton, United Kingdom. I primarily work on PHP web applications as a developer and systems architect although I am also available to hire to work on a freelance basis on your online marketing or development projects.

I have nearly 10 years of commercial experience building web applications in PHP, Python and Java. I have a keen interest in building clean code and my niche is working with legacy PHP systems, refactoring, and introducing Modern PHP. I have also kept a keen interest in digital marketing, being involved in SEO and SEM projects, video marketing, social, local, mobile, display advertising and more. I am both Google and Hubspot qualified in digital marketing techniques.

In my spare time I fly quadcopters (drones), tinker with Arduino and code on Raspberry Pis. This site is mostly a scratchpad for my own thoughts and consists primarily of links to articles and projects that I find interesting.

For more on my commercial offerings I trade under the agency name Hello JB.

Thanks for visiting!
