I'm a Zend Certified PHP Developer with about 15 years of experience. At first PHP started as a hobby. Then I started my own web development company during my free hours besides my full-time job as a system administrator at an ISP, working mostly with CentOS, FreeBSD and Debian servers.
Eventually, in 2011 PHP developing became my full-time job. I mostly work with the Symfony2 and CakePHP frameworks and am also active in their communities. In late 2016 my focus shifted a little to the DevOps side of things. So I'm now mostly doing system administration, build automation and some development work. But I don't develop full-time anymore.
I am also a regular in "Room 11", the PHP chatroom of StackOverflow. I can be found there most of the time when I'm online.
