My main work is PHP development. I do projects or contract-work for my customers, whether it is developing an application from scratch, extending existing applications or becoming an integral part of an existing development team for a specified time. My focus is on building complex, big applications where working on the application is not just a matter of typing in the code, but where challenges need to be taken, problems need to be solved and the end result needs to be awesome.
Working on PHP development projects is not just about PHP. It is also about everything around PHP. Using external software for searching, caching, queueing, etc. It is about finding the best solution to the problem at hand. It is also about selecting the right library or framework for the problem at hand.
