Hi there, I’m Harry Roberts. I am a 22 year old front-end architect and web developer from Leeds, UK.
I write and speak on the topics of CSS and its scalability, architecture, maintenance and more. I work as a Senior UI Developer for one of the UK’s biggest media and entertainment companies, BSkyB. I am a .net awards finalist and a member of Smashing Magazine’s Experts Panel. For a more exhaustive profile, please see my CV.
I’ve got a crush on Harry Roberts…Andy Clarke
I specialise in writing and scaling CSS for large apps and websites, with a strong focus on OOCSS, pragmatism and powerful and rapid development. I also love tinkering with front-end performance, Git, Vim and other cool (nerdy) stuff.
If you want to get in touch with me feel free to drop me an email. I aim to respond to every email I get but I am usually kept pretty busy – if I don’t get to replying right away please do chase me up.
For more casual contact please fire me a tweet. I am not currently accepting any freelance work and will consider any speaking requests on a case-by-case basis.
inuit.css is a mature, open source, totally free project of mine; it is a powerful, scalable, Sass-based, BEM, OOCSS framework. It is designed to be small enough to be suited to small sites, but powerful enough to scale to sites with several thousand pages. It is the culmination of years of my work and experience on projects of all sizes. You should check it out, it totally rocks!
This site is built on Jekyll, an open-source static site generator. It is hosted on GitHub Pages. This site also utilises inuit.css, a free and open-source CSS framework developed and maintained by me.
This site is developed quite openly; the source is available to poke through in its own GitHub repo. This code is made available for people to look through and hopefully learn from, however this code is not available for your use and, remains under my copyright. If you notice anything wrong with the site, or would like to suggest a feature, please open an issue.
N.B. This site was ported from WordPress to Jekyll in December, 2012; there is every chance that certain things before then will not look quite right now. If you spot anything, I’d be super grateful if you could let me know.
