Ben Henick has worked as a freelance web developer for more than fifteen years, catering especially to SMBs with unique project requirements. He has also fulfilled a number of production contracts relating to sites well-known to technology workers; odds are short that at one time or another, your web browser has rendered a stylesheet that he wrote.

Ben has fulfilled one contract for O’Reilly Media, for HTML & CSS: The Good Parts (2010). He is currently working on three others:

  • The New Beginner’s Guide to HTML (…And CSS) (2014, Atlas-only, free-to-read)
  • No-Nonsense HTML & CSS (2014)
  • Mastering HTML & CSS (2014)

Prior to joining O’Reilly’s author roster, Ben served a stint as the Managing Editor of the erstwhile Digital Web Magazine and was active in several volunteer professional education settings, including the Web Standards Project, Evolt, and webdesign-l. He still lurks webdesign-l and the css-d mailing lists, along with other O’Reilly authors.

Ben lives in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, and is currently seeking to switch from freelance to fulltime exempt work.
