About the Author
Adam Griffiths is a student and freelance CodeIgniter Developer based in the United Kingdom. He has five years web development experience, the last two being largely influenced by CodeIgniter. He has worked on many websites, both large and small, from small blogs to large multi-national companies. He is well versed in development techniques and how to squeeze that little bit more from an application. He has also made a number of contributions to the CodeIgniter Community, most notably The Authentication Library, a very simple-to-use but full-featured Authentication Library for CodeIgniter. When CodeIgniter and PHP aren't spiralling around his head, Adam enjoys practising card and mentalist tricks, mainly sleight of hand and card handling. He has performed at local and formal functions for hundreds of people. He is also a guitar player and enjoys playing acoustically at pubs and small gigs. Moving back towards computing, he has a deep interest in Cryptography. He loves finding patterns in data and loves using pen and paper to decipher any cipher text he may find around the web.
