I’ve been working as a PHP developer at New Mexico State University for almost 14 years, and, of that, I’ve spent 10 years as lead or senior web developer. I’ve written hundreds of web applications and been the administrator for several database systems, dozens of individual databases, and many web servers and server architectures. Just recently I’ve been working more closely with a new Dev Ops pipeline, and writing infrastructure as code is a real thrill… at least for a web dev nerd like myself.
While I’m not writing code for NMSU, I’m writing code for my own clients. Since I love development, I even do it when I’m at home. I’ve been developing web sites locally since I’ve lived in Las Cruces, about the same amount of time that I’ve been at NMSU as a matter of fact. I primarily use WordPress for client sites, though I have been known to use Drupal or even write sites from scratch if the need arises.
