Warwick Booth

WordPress Developer

Warwick is the lead developer at LightSpeed and takes care of any back end work where he works mostly with HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript and SQL. He joined LightSpeed in 2006 and since then has worked his way up to a senior position in which he takes on responsibilities such as project planning, mentoring junior teammates and peer code review.

Warwick sees himself as something of an outdoors person, enjoying the occasional hike but mostly spending time out in the garden. He has a deep love of technology and DIY, and works on a couple of projects in his spare time. For him, a good beer and great company is always welcome.
