Detailed Information

I am a software developer that has been using and contributing to PHP since nearly the beginning, even back to when it was called PHP/FI. I was also the lead web developer for MySQL Ab before joining the server development team where I fixed a lot of bugs, worked on storage engine projects that ultimately were unreleased, and eventually took on responsibility for the Connector/ODBC project and did the initial work to separate the libmysql client library into its own project (Connector/C).

I built an open source point-of-sale and ecommerce system, Scat POS, using the Slim Framework, including integrations with payment providers including Stripe, PayPal, and Amazon Pay, QuickBooks Online accounting software, EasyPost as a shipping provider, and various vendors using ad-hoc/scraped APIs to support inventory purchasing processes.
