About the author, and about this site
This site is the online home of Phil Hawksworth, and Phil doesn’t love talking about himself in the third person, so he’s going to stop that now if you don’t mind.
I have been building things on the web professionally for almost 20 years. Between 2009 and 2018 that happened at agencies where I was fortunate to work with a wide range of public and private sector clients.
After 9 years working at agencies, I returned to working on a product. Now as part of the Developer Relations team at Netlify my focus is on developing strategies for using JAMstack technologies to make building for the web simpler, faster and more secure.
I live in the leafy English city of St Albans, just a few miles north of London with my wife and our 2 naughty cats.
If you want to know more, you can ask me anything.
You can find me in the following places on the web:
As an active member of the web development community, I enjoy attending and speaking at conferences. If you are interested in my speaking at your event you can ask me about speaking or visit the Speaking page to see where I’ve spoken and what I have coming up.
