IMG_9410-smallerMy name is Lorna Jane Mitchell; many of my online colleagues and peers know me simply as lornajane. I'm based in Leeds, in northern England and I'm a Developer Advocate for IBM Cloud Data Services which basically means I get paid to play with and talk about open source database technologies!

I'm the author of "PHP Web Services" and "PHP Master" as well as being a regular conference speaker and writer for a number of outlets. You can find information about my books and videos in the publications section, and links to recent talks, slide decks, articles and other activities under "More LornaJane".
