Welcome to my personal website!

Technology enthusiast

I am very interested in technology, particularly relating to computer science. I am most interested in web design and development.

My main hobby is programming. One of my most well known products from this is ZPE. I also am the sole creator of BalfBlog, BalfBar and BalfSlider.

A little bit about me

In 1997, when I was six years of age, I got my very first computer. I was always very interested in the ins and outs of it and dismantled it to see how it worked.

Years later, in 2016 I received my BSc (with honours) in Computer Science, obtaining a First class degree.

I'd like to welcome you to my website and hope you enjoy using it as much as I have enjoyed building it!

Yippe! BalfSlider is back. And this time it's back with a vengeance. 

BalfSlider 2.0 brings a large number of new design features that focus solely on interoperability with any website. Because it's part of my Web Neutral Project, it's main aim is exactly this - no styles are added other than the crucial feature based styles and the JavaScript based ones. The rest is up to you.

The current version includes just one transition but two more will be here by version 2.1. As well as this, I'm happy to announce my Web Neutral Project JavaScript and CSS files. Between these files you can find combined BalfBar, BalfRibbon and BalfSlider CSS and JavaScript that allows you to quickly deploy any or all three of the plugins. 

My next focus in these plugins is efficiency. Let me know if you have any requests using the usual methods of contact.

Whilst I never imagined I would work on an image slideshow plugin for jQuery again, I'm happy to announce the new version of BalfSlider. 

BalfSlider follows my naming scheme and is part of my Web Neutral Project (WNP), and it follows the same design principles - none. In other words, the host website does some styling for it. It's open to development. 

As a result of all of this, BalfSlider is incredibly lightweight - even more so than BalfBar which is hugely small. BalfSlider is designed for flexibility offering many different transition styles (coming soon).

If you want to see a sample, look at my front page.

Whilst I was working on a university project, I started to add some extra functionalities to change the image in a canvas. A lot of this reminded me of my BBCL (Balfour's Business Class Library), which you will probably know was a collection of business made functions written in VB.NET a long time ago (started in 2008). It reminded me specifically of the Painter Pro extensions of this .NET library that I wrote that also contained functions similar to this.

Because of this, I've decided to make these available as a single package JavaScript file. You will soon be able to download this from my website. I plan to bring it all to JavaScript, including unique features such as the I Want It There tool. 

Site accessibility

A lot of the original functionalities that once existed here have been removed.
