About Your Instructor

WordPress Developer / Instructor - JasonJason has been designing websites pretty much since the internet began. Starting in 1990, when there were no images on the internet and it was all done in Notepad. Jason soon joined a team which built the UK’s first ever intranet for BT. Once he had the bug, it was not long before he was assisting the Disney Store in creating their own intranet, followed by the Disney Store’s first online shop. Moving onto government agencies as an advisor, and to large corporations as a development director, he swiftly became a head-hunted web developer.

Not content with static or commerce-only sites, Jason undertook the real challenge of deploying industry software to the internet with platforms such as HR and Payroll systems, featuring complex functionality and security controls. He spent the next few years very much ‘head down’ until joining the team at the Internet Business School. Jason has built many start-up sites and projects, including membership sites and an internet marketing business, and now splits his time between the various businesses and working as an internet marketing trainer.
