Full stack web developer, interested in all the things, but especially the web, code, design, Linux, OS X, PHP, WordPress, JavaScript & robots.


My name is Philip Newborough and I’m a full-stack web developer, hacker and technology fan based in Lincoln, UK. This is my website and blog, a place where I publish details of my projects and post “interesting” links to content that I find on the web.

I’m interested in all the things, but I’m especially passionate about code, design, Linux, OS X, PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, WordPress and robots.

I was previously the lead developer and founder of CrunchBang Linux, a Linux distribution derived from Debian. In May 2013 Jim Lynch of reviewed CrunchBang 11:

Frankly, it’s one of the most functional and efficient distros available today. You can run it on top of the line hardware, or you can run it on older, slower machines. It’s a perfect choice for anyone who prefers functionality over form….These days it seems that lots of distros and other operating systems are adding tons of glitz and glitter to desktop interfaces. CrunchBang 11 does the complete opposite. Frankly, it’s a breath of fresh air and I enjoyed it. It was fast, stable and did what I wanted it to do. It never bogged me down in useless desktop drivel.

These days, my Linux involvement is limited to running web servers, hacking on Raspberry Pi’s and attending Lincoln LUG’s monthly meetings.
