I've been working in the web development trade since I was 18 and fresh out of college with my HND in Computing. That was enough to get me a job working for Hargreaves Lansdown - a big financial services company, later on Mizu - building CodeIgniter CMS' - and Deep Blue Sky - writing even more PHP, and under my own company: HappyNinjas Ltd.
I have shelved my freelance career and am currently the Lead Engineer for Kapture so I am not seeking any more work, but I am always happy to do 1-hour Skype training sessions on the subject of your choice:
- Laravel 4
Contact me and we'll work out a time. The cost for an hours training is $120.
I've given talks in England, Amsterdam and all over the States including a 5-hour workshop at DIBI at DIBI. I love to present and talk about my experiences and projects I am involved in or PHP in general. Check my Lanyrd profile for some of my talks and slides. If you'd like me to give a talk at your conference then just give me a shout.
