Oscar still remembers downloading an early version of the Apache HTTP server at the end of 1995, and promptly asking "Ok, what's this good for?" He started learning PHP in 2000 and hasn't stopped since. He's worked with Drupal, WordPress, Zend Framework, Silex, and bespoke PHP, to name a few. Currently, he's the Editor-in-chief at php[architect], a monthly magazine for PHP programmers.
