My name is Stefan Ashwell and when I'm not coding personal projects or painting miniatures, I'm a Web Developer at CWA in Leicester.

This blog is a place for me to write about things that require that little bit extra to solve. We all have gaps in our knowledge and every now and then I need to reach out on search engines or blogs to find an answer. Often, these answers come from multiple sources. This blog serves as a personal resource, but if it's helpful for me I'm sure it'll help others too!
