I am a corporate web application developer in Austin, TX for a major semiconductor company. I focus mainly on PHP development, recently using the Codeigniter and Kohana frameworks. I enjoy doing web applications because each project is significantly different. It’s different from the conventional cookie-cutter website development. The applications I’ve developed are somewhat complex tools which automate some of the crucial tasks involved in everyday operations. It’s a gratifying feeling to know that engineers throughout the company and on the other side of the world rely on my tools to work properly to make their jobs easier.
