I donโ€™t discuss lots of coding or tech challenges because they donโ€™t interest me. Iโ€™m interested in people and using tech to make our world a better place.

As a result, politics are a necessary part of the discussion.

I had contemplated leaving politics out of my feed and trying to stick purely to tech, but that feels disingenuous and also does not help accomplish my goal of trying to make the world a better place.

Iโ€™m Ben, a web dev, author, & speaker. Iโ€™ve been at this for >20 years, & Iโ€™m always eager to help. If you have questions about the Web, FOSS, PHP, or APIs, ask.

I advocate for decentralization, open source, open standards, & the Commons; I believe good UX is the key to mass adoption.

Iโ€™m active in the PHP community. I founded Atlanta PHP & co-organize @nashvillephp, & I authored the popular ramsey/uuid library.

Iโ€™ve spoken at many conferences. If you see me at one, say โ€œhi.โ€
