Webknit - The online presence of Shane Prendergast


Hello, my name is Shane Prendergast. I'm a 31 year old developer who lives in Macclesfield, UK. I have a BSc (Hons) Web Design and Development degree from the University of Hull and I'm currently employed by global b2b marketing agency Stein IAS.

Although primarily a Front-End Developer, I also have a strong interest in Design and UX. At the moment I'm working with various Javascript frameworks and I'm passionate about creating - and constantly leaning about - Web Accessibility.

Webknit is an online pseudonym that I have used since my time at university and this website is a digital collection of my life, both work and personal.
