About Hut Six

Hut Six started life as Jo Cox Design back in 2006. The new name is a nod to the code breakers that worked out of Bletchley Park during the Second World War.

Jo Cox

I started building websites when I was 14, in an age of table layouts and 56k modems. It began as a hobby, and then it became a part time job. Whilst I was studying for a history degree I was building websites. When I started training to become an ICT teacher I was building websites. Eventually I decided I should just be building websites.

By about 2010 I was getting so many calls from people wanting WordPress websites that I decided to make it my specialism. I dedicated all my spare time to learning it inside out, and in 2012 I released my first theme into the WordPress repository. It was downloaded more than 30,000 times and had a near perfect user rating. Now most of my time is spent building, maintaining, and training on WordPress. I never stop learning.

The Original Hut 6

For anyone who is interested, like I am, Hut 6 was a section of the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park. During WW2 it housed a team tasked with decoding German Army and Air force messages, which were then passed on to Hut 3 for intelligence to work on.
