I have been developing web applications for over 15 years, and still loving it as much as the day I first started. I’m a full-stack web developer, and co-founder of Yab.
I work with Laravel, VueJS, EmberJS and WordPress.
How I got Started Programming
My love for the Internet started when I was finishing grade school. It was fascinating that one could create their own content and put it online for all to see.
In this very basic nature, the web has still not changed much. The web gives us all a truly open platform to create amazing things. Our lives have been enriched in ways we never thought possible.
My work has always been based on the latest standards and technologies available. I love making applications that are both easy to use, and beautifully designed.
Programming Languages / Frameworks
My WordPress work always seems to bridge the modern world of PHP programming. I tend to use Composer and namespace all my plugins and themes. As a result, all of my plugins and themes require PHP 5.3+, where the minimum WordPress requirements are only PHP 5.2.
Development Setup and Workflow
I often get asked what kind of programming setup I use. I am a Mac Guy, but I do have a PC for Gaming / Linux purposes. Based on the scope of the project, I switch off between my MacBook Pro and Retina iMac.
My day to day machine is a 15″ MacBook Pro w/ Touch Bar, hooked up to 2 x 5K LG Fine Displays. I use a simple Apple Magic Keyboard but, the mouse is the Logitech MX Master (if you don’t have one of these, go buy it now). I use an Ikea sit/stand desk, but when I’m sitting, it’s on a Turnstone Buoy.
