Delicious Reverie

blog of developer & bookworm benjamin read

Thanks for popping round!

Delicious Reverie is a blog mostly about web development and JavaScript engineering. It's here I share talks I've given and articles I've had published. But it's my personal blog too, so you might find a few other things such as recipes, my musical interests and poetry reviews.

I like to try to help my peers. Drop me a message if you'd like to say hi!
