When my brain became my burden

About 3 years ago (at the time of writing), I pulled out of the PHP Community and pretty much disappeared from the digital face of the earth. While it wasn’t the right move, especially in hindsight, it was a move I made on purpose. Given how many people were affected by it in one way […]

Looking for the next challenge

Now that life has settled down a bit, I can afford to take on a full-time project again and I am very much ready to resume using my passion and knowledge for something productive.

Full frontal

A couple of weeks ago, the PHP Enterprise Management Magazine Newsletter approached me with a request to do an interview with me for their section ‘Developers World’. My first PHP related interview, and I’m actually quite fond of how it turned out. If you want to know a bit more about me, read on for the link.
