About Us

Gwiddle Web Hosting is a service operated by The Gwiddle Foundation, a UK charity aiming to advance Computer Science education around the world. We started Gwiddle because we felt that there was a void in current offerings – new web developers needed to get their work out there, but didn’t know how. We are constantly aiming to solve that problem by providing a stable platform for learning and hosting so the next generation can be inspired, alongside our other tutoring and online learning services.

Today, we are home to hundreds of students who are taking their first steps in web development, sharing and improving their skills. Supported by Mythic Beasts, we are ready and waiting to support the next generation. We’re always open to suggestions and support. Please feel free to reach out to us whenever you like. You can find information on how to contact us here. :)

Happy developing!

Meet The Team

Joshua

Project Lead

I'm just a person with an interest in computers and science! I run Gwiddle with all of these amazing other people that you can read about below. I normally put out the fires and answer your emails. Please do feel free to get in touch!

James

Head of Educational Resources

When I’m not writing Gwiddle documentation or making things for my various projects, you can find me geocaching in the countryside or messing with old electronics. I’m a avid coffee addict.

I’m the main documentation author, so if you have any suggestions for something I can add, please don’t hesitate to put them forward!

Yasmin

Head of Customer Support

I'm an avid programmer who uses loads of different languages - Python, Ruby, C++ etc. I'm also Europe's Digital Girl of the Year. My job at Gwiddle is to answer any questions you have, whenever you have them, in order to make your experience with Gwiddle as great as possible!

Fayadh

Support Agent

Hey there fellow humans, I'm Fayadh and I'm currently a student at Western University, Canada studying for a degree in Software Engineering. 
I volunteered at Gwiddle, because I believe in what this young group of individuals have set out to achieve. Connecting students all over, to the world of web development and the joys it offers. In my free time, I take a lot of photos and read a ton of books.

Aaron

Security Engineer

I'm Aaron (aka: Arinerron), a security enthusiast and a student full-stack web and software developer running Arch Linux. I'm committed to ensuring others can receive the same opportunity to learn that I got from Gwiddle.
