Proudly created and actively code for WithSocial.com as well as LinuxTorrents.com

Hi! I'm Ben, a developer for a company in Kent, UK.
I dabble in PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS and a little dab of JavaScript (jQuery), Perl and Python. I've also done a bit of Node.js

Over the years I've worked with CodeIgniter, WordPress, PyroCMS and Laravel.
I'm interested in networking, servers, gaming, building computers, configuring
web servers and I play drums, ride and go out when I can! :')
