Ben Frain, author of Responsive Web Design with HTML5 and CSS3 and Sass and Compass for designers

Hello, I’mBen Frain.

I’m a web developer, book author and occasional speaker. I live in Cheshire, England.

I’ve written two web development books, ‘Responsive web design with HTML5 and CSS3’ and ‘Sass and Compass for Designers’. For more about those I will respectfully shepherd you to the books page.

I write in the blog section, principally about web development techniques. Responsive web design, CSS architecture and Sass techniques are the usual topics.

I’m a ‘front-end’ web developer. I talk more about what that is and what I get up to on the web development page. There’s also details there about the conference talks I have done and podcasts I have appeared on.
