Latest Work


My name is Ashley Sheridan, and I'm a PHP developer with strongly developed front-end skills. I thoroughly enjoy what I do, and spend quite a bit of my free time exploring and playing with new technologies. I enjoy a challenge, and see one not as an obstacle, but something that will push me towards better. I like thinking outside of the box and prefer to spend a little bit more time thinking on a problem than diving into tackling it right away, to ensure that I've done the best I can.

If this is your first visit, you may want to look towards my portfolio and CV (which is downloadable in different formats), where you will find some of my work, and information about me. The portfolio will be updated regularly as I work on newer projects.

Contained in the coding section you will see an assortment of small snippets of code across a variety of subject programming areas. If you have any feedback or suggestions on any of the content on this site, please contact me.
