The Holmes Office is owned and run by me, Simon Holmes.

I’ve been building websites since the late 1990′s. My first website started life as a University project which I subsequently sold on. I haven’t looked back.

I like the industry as the landscape is constantly changing. You have to continually re-evaluate your position and keep an eye on the new & emerging technologies, trying to spot the potential value and trends. I would say “never a dull moment” but anyone who has ever spent an hour trying to debug hundreds of lines of JavaScript code only to discover the issue was a misplaced comma will know that this is blatantly untrue.

I spent many years working as a developer for Design Motive Ltd in London, am currently an engineer at LivePerson in Reading. In my spare time I work with the MEAN stack, writing books, building apps, writing blog posts and generally trying stuff out with Node.js, Express, MongoDB, AngularJS, Mongoose and so on.
