Modern, web-based applications play a central role in modern life. They let us do almost all of our essential tasks online, whether that's communicating with friends and family to shopping and banking.
Hi, I'm Matthew Setter. I've been developing web-based applications since 1996 and developing with PHP since version 3 — way back in 1999 before it even had OOP support. I've been involved in building all kinds of PHP-based applications in Australia, the United Kingdom, and Germany. I'm also a PHP editor in the Twilio Voices team.
I regularly blog about what I know and am continuing to learn about PHP and web development more broadly on my blog. I was the co-host of The Undercover elePHPant, a podcast about scaling and optimizing PHP applications. I'm also the author of Mezzio Essentials, Zend Framework 2 Foundations, Mezzio: Getting Started, Zend Db Deep Dive, and Zend Framework 2: The Basics.
