Building the Podcast Site with Slim PHP

Here we are in July 2015. How did the time pass so quickly? The excitement from the last few weeks is still with me, so you could say that I'm on a bit of a high of late. However, it's not all been peaches and cream...

The Week That Was – I’m Starting a Podcast

Well, it's been an interesting week this last one. I wouldn't say it was a crazy one, but still interesting. The key standout for this week was that, I decided to start a podcast. That's right, after so long, I decided to start a podcast.

It was a pleasure working with Matt; he has an excellent development skill set, and more importantly is always learning and improving. He is one of those rare technical people who are truly professional – in his demeanor, his approach to executing his work, and his clear and timely communication. A very focused PHP and general web developer who works to a high standard, and someone who I would be very happy to work with again.

I worked alongside Matthew at Dow Jones Ltd where we were both on the same project. I found Matthew to be an excellent developer with an advanced knowledge of programming. He has good communication and he works hard. Matthew has a positive attitude about everything. I would have absolutely no reservations in recommending Matthew as an employee.
