I am an Irish web developer who resides in Monheim am Rhein in Germany, where I currently work as a Senior Frontend Engineer for Kaufland e-commerce.

My main focus these days is on web standards, good semantics, and accessibility, so good HTML and proper use of WAI-ARIA are things I concentrate on.

I was an early adopter of HTML5, I have even had a HTML5 book published on HTML5 Multimedia: Develop and Design (Peachpit ).

I am also one of the HTML5 Doctors and I have also curated at HTML5 Gallery.

In I became one of the founding contributors to Intel’s HTML5 Hub.

There are a number of small ongoing projects that I maintain such as HTML5 Bones and ARIA Bones.

I write sporadically on this site, mainly on web development topics but also on other subjects that interest me such as history and nature. I also tweet as @iandevlin.

I have a BSc Honours Degree in Computer Systems from the University of Limerick, Ireland.
