What is your interest in PHP / Web development? (Please answer this question for organizers to approve your membership)

I am a professional programmer focusing in PHP back-end development and some Javascript on the side. I want to better my code and discuss/teach/learn with others to better the programming of everyone.

Are you developer, designer, tech company, entrepreneur, recruiter?

I am a developer.

What topics would you like to see covered?

Strategies for migrating your company to better practices and more current code. Also, I would love to know things like "Framework-agnostic View-loading", "What is a PHAR Really?", and "Best practices when hosting many domains on 1 server (with Httpd 2+)."

What is your website if any?

I have many that I developed, but I am not at liberty to list them as they are private client websites :(

Would you be willing to present on a PHP related topic one day?

I would love to. I am relatively good at public speaking when I love the topic and I would LOVE to better the skills of all those I touch (figuratively speaking).


I started Programming in Middle school, TA-ed and Tutored others in Highschool and College, and recently became a professional developing, maintaining, and fixing a private, closed-source framework/cms for my company.
