I'll keep using console.log until I die


Hi there. I'm Charlie.

I build websites and try to make the web a better place.

Unfortunately for my career I've got a bad case of The Principles, which makes just being an everyday web developer a bit of a problem.

I try to get around this by speaking at conferences and pretending I know far more than I do.

I espouse:

  • Putting people before code.
  • Replacing Capitalism with something kinder.
  • Choosing simple solutions before technological masturbation.
  • The benefits of long walks on the beach.
  • Building robust sites before jumping at fragile frameworks.
  • Using tech for the greater good.
  • The need to remind everyone and their dog that Facebook is fundamentally evil.

It's hard to believe that the @wearewebclerks conference was the first one ever by the organisers. It was slick, welcoming, friendly, and interesting. Thanks for asking me to speak! ♥️ #webclerks

Have fully broken myself after these last few weeks. Well, last few months. Currently lying on the sofa emitting fluids and sounds from my face pipes. I think both my mind and body need a hard reboot.
