I'm Alex Williams—an accomplished full-stack developer with a passion for technical communication.

I am an experienced

full-stack developer

and an experienced

technical writer.

My journey in technology began when I earned my Computer Science degree from the esteemed University of London in 2012. This foundational education laid the groundwork for my subsequent ventures in the tech world.

In 2012, I embarked on an entrepreneurial path by establishing my own developer agency. Through this agency, I’ve had the privilege of assisting budding entrepreneurs in their digital journeys, guiding them from logo design to e-commerce platform development, and facilitating their expansion into the digital marketplace.

In 2019, I took a temporary hiatus from hands-on coding to explore a different facet of my expertise. During this period, I assumed the role of an independent IT consultant while simultaneously curating content on my blog, Hosting Data UK. My blog became a platform where I shared my insights into IT, recounted my experiences in web development, and delved into diverse areas like data management, digital marketing, and solutions tailored for nascent online entrepreneurs.

My dedication to expanding my knowledge extended to the realms of relational and non-relational databases. In fact, I compiled one of the most comprehensive lists of NoSQL and database resources globally. Encouraged by this endeavor, I ventured beyond the confines of Hosting Data UK, seeking opportunities to contribute my expertise to reputable publications.



My work has garnered recognition and citations from esteemed publications, including TechTarget, PhoenixNAP, RavenDB, and ProgrammableWeb. Notably, my contributions span a wide spectrum, encompassing SQL expertise, web development, business intelligence, cybersecurity, and more.

While I remain an active front-end developer and web designer, my passion for crafting technical content has evolved from a part-time endeavor into a thriving small business. I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to collaborate with you, offering my expertise to create informative and engaging content that enriches your website and provides valuable insights for your readers.

Let’s work together to create content that educates and inspires.
