Rowan is a software engineer and technical team lead at the Inviqa group. He’s worked commercially with PHP for well over 6 years, dabbling before that in Python, Java, and BASIC if you go back far enough. His work has encompassed everything from tiny in-page scripts through to multi-million pound billing engines using a wide variety of open source technologies. Rowan is based in Sheffield, UK, makes semi-regular treks over to the PHPNW user group meetings and accidentally organises the Sheffield PHP user group. Talk to him about creative cocktails and appalling horror films.
