About a year ago I experienced a “beacon of light” moment when my girlfriend wanted to create a blog, she asked if I knew anyone who could build one so I contacted a friend who owned a web design business and was quoted a number that sounded crazy. “This is ridiculous” I thought, “I can do that”.

And there it was.

I could do that! If I put my mind to it, worked hard, said my prayers and ate my vitamins I just knew that I could learn how to design and create half decent web sites, even more importantly, I now had a chance to make something of myself.

My name is Luke Rees and this blog will be a dairy of my (hopeful) progression as a front end web developer, along the way I’ll be talking about projects I’m working on, books I’m reading, topics I’m studying and generally just a bunch of other junk that’s happening in my life (which at the moment is house of cards and only house of cards).

It will also map my growth as a blogger, because from the looks of it; we’re starting off from a very low base.

So to anyone out there actually reading this, thanks for your time, feedback and tips are always appreciated.
