I have been working to educate developers for 13 years now.
My mission it to enrich the current generation of developers, but also, to raise up the next generation of developers.

My mother was a school teacher. My father ran music education programs for every church at which he worked. I was raised to think that it is normal to help others understand the things that I do.
That’s why it’s really no surprise that when my career took a left turn in 2006 and I started working on ways to educate developers, I took to it like a duck to water.
As I’ve talked about before, I try and stick to the things I am qualified to teach, PHP, MySQL, programming, and building teams. These are the things that I know. These are the things that I understand well enough so that I can share with others.
It’s not just my vocation to teach developers, it is my passion. I want to help the current generation of developers become better developers, and I want to help raise up the next generation of developers.
I teach because I know something other’s don’t.
My unique perspective on a problem is something that others with the same problem may not have considered.
I teach to elevate others.
If I can bring developers to my level, then it is easier for them to climb to the next level, and bring me up.
I teach, because it makes me happy.
By helping people, I work to make my corner of the world a little better.
Until next time,
