I’m Alex, one of the core maintainers of Yii PHP framework for more than 7 years, its representative in PHP-FIG, active conference speaker and participant of various other OpenSource projects.

I am blogging in Russian since 2005 and recently decided that it is time to write in English as well.

Seeking for patronage

I am seeking for patronage in order to work on Yii framework and other OpenSource software. Would really appreciate if you will support me.

Available for Hire

Currently I am working fulltime for SkyEng but may allocate some time for:

  • Code Reviews (basic security, Yii usage, cleanness, possible bugs etc.).
  • Consulting (both Yii-related and not).
  • Checking if project is good for OpenSource before publishing.

Availablity is subject to change. Rate depends on type of the project and specifics. Average is about $100/hr. I do give discounts and even may consider doing it for free for non-profits and OpenSource.
