Started using PHP at version 4 in 2002.
Moved to South Florida in 2000 with my employer and stuck around.
Work for Zend Technologies, but also do some freelance stuff.
I'd like to help South Florida PHP users get a little more organized in the world-wide PHP community as a whole. As an architect in the market, I've hired and managed many developers who stay stagnant in their knowledge from lack of community.
Certified PHP application architect, speaker, author, trainer, organizer of SoFloPHP group and SunshinePHP conference. Avid hiker, judo player, and long distance runner.
The group is very active, and many members make it very dynamic. It covers basic to advanced topics and helps out all levels of developer.
