Welcome!

I'm Matthew Weier O'Phinney. I am a software engineer and architect, PHP expert, and standards developer. I write the tools that PHP developers use to build their applications, from APIs to content management systems. In addition, I am:

  • He/him.
  • A husband.
  • A father of two wonderful children.
  • An open source software developer and advocate.
  • Serial Basset Hound owner, and Boston Terrier wrangler.

I blog on this site, as well as elsewhere (see the icons next to the "Recent Blog Posts"), typically on topics related to open source development. Feel free to contact me.

Looking for my next adventure

As of June 2019, I am no longer employed with Zend/RogueWave Software/Perforce. I continue to work towards the launch and funding of the Laminas Project, but I am looking for my next adventure. Find out more in my Resume.

I'm working to launch and fund the Laminas Project (the continuation of the Zend Framework project under the Linux Foundation), and currently doing so with no company backing. This includes setting up domains and hosting, scheduling calls with potential members, and continuing my role as development lead.

I've recently set up a Patreon to raise funds to cover my costs as I do this work.
