I'm Chris Gibbons

An experienced frontend developer based in Lancashire [53.7632° N, 2.7044° W], UK.

I build fast, user friendly and accessible websites for the automotive industry, with a particular passion/obsession for well written & clean code.

I’ve got over a decades experience as a front end developer and have recently found a passion for UX and accessibility. My career has been spent working for some of the top businesses—both agency and in-house—in Manchester. During this time I have been fortunate to have the chance to work on large scale, content-managed platforms for some of the largest companies in the UK.

I also like to write and take pictures, amongst other things.

Initial topics include: Fullstack: The Myth and the Bullshit End of year – 2017 – review Goals and plans for 2018 Accessibility at Auto Trader Breaking into public speaking Digital detox - My “dry” january Benefits of having a mentor, or being a mentor Conference round ups: Camp Digital and UX Scotland Designing, and building, in the open.

Today I Learnt

As hard and fast as modern life is, I think that it’s important to take time out of your schedule and make sure that you keep regular contact with friends. I like to think that I’m better than most at this. I do overthink the reasons why people don’t reciprocate this, but hey. People.
