Hi, I’m James - lead web developer and architect at Co-operative Web based in Longbridge (although I live in Stourbridge).
My main stack is PHP (Yii Framework), MariaDB and Nginx with some added Node.js for good measure all mixed up and served on a bed of Vagrant and Puppet. (Yes I also like to cook).
I lead our PHP team and oversee the architecture of most of the systems we build. Technology-wise I also have plenty of experience in Microsoft platforms and a bit of Java now and again.
I’ve been to Canvasconf twice and a couple of other local dev events. Weirdly I’ve only just found out about Birmingham.io.
