Front end developer blog featuring JavaScript and WordPress

Once upon a time in a ‘grotty‘ town called Tiverton, I decided to start a blog. Gav’s Blog would be a treasure trove of web developer tutorials, tips and tricks covering a wide range of subjects such as JavaScript, WordPress, HTML, CSS and PHP. A lightbulb of inspiration, it would draw a wide range of developers from all around the globe. Helping others find answers to all kinds of programmy problems…

We all have dreams and this is one of mine. I hope you enjoy the ride…
