Hi, my name is Ryan. I live near Seattle where I'm a Staff-level Software Engineer. In my spare time I goof around with my kids, watch movies, listen to music, cook, blog, and write software that benefits the entire web community. I created SimplePie, AWS SDK for PHP, added PHP support to AWS Elastic Beanstalk, and worked on DevOps and Security at WePay. I value honesty, respect, passion, and being genuine. I believe in making tomorrow a better place than today. Formerly: WePay, Amazon Web Services, and Yahoo!.
My last redesign of this website was in 2010 — before Retina displays, icon fonts, SVGs and responsive design were really a thing.
Yes, I understand that the techniques used in the front-end of this site may be a little outdated and/or inefficient, and as soon as I have time to build something new and awesome for myself, I will.
All ideas, opinions and comments I post are my own and are in no way affiliated with anybody I work with. If you quote and/or reprint something I've written or said, please direct folks back to this site as a form of attribution. I promise I'll do the same for you.
