Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m currently a contractor for a government agency. My duties are a combination of IT consulting and project management support – it does not have me directly involved with technical detail that I’m used to. So I decided to broaden my horizons. Before the government contract I was an application support tech for a web-based software developer with a health-care related product. It was a PHP app with MySQL database. During the two years I supported and troubleshot that app I became familiar with PHP/MySQL; so that’s why I’m digging deeper with that platform.

How / when did you start using PHP

I used to support a PHP/MySQL app for a healthcare startup. I began coding myself about October 2012.

What do you love about working with PHP

It works well with open source databases and very inexpensive the implement.

How do you want to improve your skills

Networking with others to supplement what I read. I'm working on a scheduling app that I'll need help with.


IT systems admin / analyst with web developer envy.
