Currently Actively Looking for PHP ( Cakephp, Laravel or just Raw OO-based )

(I also have a year experience in .NET 4.5 and C#, primarily in the form of a Windows Phone 8 app that
I submitted to the MS Store, and at least 12 people downloaded in 6 months - yep, that's sarcasm.. 12 downloads sucks but it was a learning project)

Kind of an important p.s. : Geography is the most important priority in any full time position ..

I live in North Hollywood, so I kind of prefer that I work in the following areas:

  • East SFValley: Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, North Hollywood
  • Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena
  • Santa Clarita

I prefer to *not* interview at any positions that have me driving to:

  • Beverly Hills, and around there
  • Santa Monica, Venice.. and other Beach areas

Then again ...

If, on the other hand, your company is able to supply me with

a Google self-driving car, I really don't care where the location is and you can ignore the above.

(Google car totally meant as joke, not a hard case about location, just preferences )

If it's Django, Laravel, or Raw OO-based PHP, I can help.

As a Back-end Developer, my focus has been primarily on developing skills in abstraction more so than specific languages - i.e. modeling the real world requirements into objects and patterns to create the best road to future scalability.

I do enjoy learning the specific features of a particular language - however focusing on the meta level has been my preference. In fact, I balked at learning PHP at first, preferring to wait until 5.0 was the dominant version so that coding OO-based solutions in the positions I've held had a lot less interference from the language.

My 15 years SQL experience includes a few different brands:
- The majority of my SQL work has been using MySQL
- I have done a project using PostgreSQL.
- At Digital Insight, it was Informix,
- and when working at Media Services writing Accounting applications, it was Firebird.

I'd love to answer any questions you have on my experience, skillset, where I've been and why I prefer this framework or that Ajax library.
