Welcome, weary traveller, to my blog. If you’re wandering about in a state of bewilderment and mild disdain allow me to confirm your fears and say tell you a little of the man that is Charlie Hawker.
I’m a web developer based in London, England, and I work mainly with Symfony on PHP 5, but the odd Ruby on Rails project crosses my desk. It hasn’t always been that way, in fact I have experience in quite a few object-oriented PHP frameworks (and building me own here and there), plus several out-of-the-box content management systems including concrete5, Expression Engine 1 & 2, WordPress and, rather begrudgingly at least, Joomla!.
There is more to life than web development though (yes, there really is), and my other interests include film, travel, photography, cooking (or at least having a darn good go at it) and languages of the non-programming variety.
Anyway, that’s more than enough to be going on with – more to come soon!
