I was invited to drop an introduction on the forum, so here it is!
I’m a (mostly) back-end developer, who loves working with PHP (no really, I do!). My framework of choice has to be Laravel, although I’ve dabbled with Yii and WordPress as well. I love well-written APIs and have done some TDD as well.
My brain works well with databases, and I work with MySQL and SQL Server.
I’d like to get some serious front-end framework knowledge under my belt, however choosing one is proving tricky as new ones are being released every week! Perhaps if the right project comes along that will give me an incentive to pick one! Do you have a recommendation?
I love agile development and recently became a certified Scrum Master… maybe next year I get the next level up, is that Jedi or Ninja? I can never remember… anyway…
…I’ve started doing a bit of freelancing on the side to keep myself learning and have recently discovered how fun Laravel/Forge/Envoyer and Linode is when deploying websites.
For a bit of history I studied at the University of Birmingham until 2005, then decided that I liked the city and stayed around. I run to keep fit, earlier this year I managed a half marathon in under 1h 40mins. I currently live in Moseley, which is lovely
