My name is Lorna Jane Mitchell; many of my online colleagues and peers know me simply as lornajane. I'm based in Leeds, in northern England and I'm a freelance software consultant, specialising in PHP and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) applications in particular.

I'm a regular conference speaker, and I write prolifically, there's a full list of my speaking engagements and published articles in the resources section. In general, I'm excited by technology and particularly by PHP, open source, data, statistics, reports, APIs, and web services.

As I work independently, I am always on the lookout for new and interesting work to do, so do please get in touch if you have any questions, comments or suggestions for me.
