My name is Ben Major, a full stack web developer currently working for the UK’s largest online wedding venue directory; WeddingVenues.com. I’m an open source advocate, have a particular penchant for PHP and generally love everything to do with the web. I have been working on the web for over 15 years, and always discover new and exciting techniques, which is one of the reasons I started this blog. I am also a regular active member of the StackOverflow community with a reputation of more than 39k — check out my profile here.
I graduated from university with a Bachelor of Science degree in Internet Computing and Software Engineering. I live in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom with my wife Marta and our small dog Poppy (a Shih Tzu / Yorkshire Terrier cross). I am also an avid historian, having authored several books specialising in the US Army during the Second World War period.
