Mark Howells-Mead – curriculum vitæ

Experience

I’ve been working in the Web since 1996 and I’m a passionate developer with an affinity for quality, usability and reusable code. I was asked by a manager to look into “this new internet” more than twenty years ago, and I’ve based my entire career on it ever since. I’ve been working with WordPress for more than 16 years and I pick up tips and ideas from other CMS (like TYPO3) and web technologies all the time, so that I can constantly improve my abilities.
