Tell us a bit about yourself

I've been a PHP developer for close to 8 years. UMKC grad working as a Programmer @ NKC Schools writing web apps and other things.

How / when did you start using PHP

~8 years ago when I was hired on as an intern. My first task was to write an XML parser for a Sophos AntiVirus "Latest Threats" feed.

What do you love about working with PHP

Seeing PHP remain very approachable/easy to work with while still remaining very powerful. Some of the newer frameworks built on PHP5 make me feel like PHP has a very bright future ahead of it (even though it's certainly not in a bad spot as it stands)

How do you want to improve your skills

My goal is to increase my skills in software architecture, testing, workflow, while introducing new tools to increase my productivity and code quality.


PHP Developer. Mostly using Laravel/Symfony components. JavaScript and other front-end technologies.
