The Birth of a PHP Consultancy

28 Feb 2005

I'm flying to Tennessee this Wednesday to spend a few days meeting with and Patrick Reilly. Although I have yet to announce my new PHP consultancy (more on that later), this engagement marks the start of business.

The purpose of the trip is to gain a better understanding of's business needs and to help evaluate how their web presence can best fulfill these needs. Their existing web solution is implemented in PHP, and there are several reasons why they have decided to develop a new solution. The most notable reasons are frequent reliability and security problems, and from speaking with Patrick, it sounds like these problems stem from a poor design.

I hope to have the opportunity to help enhance and secure their online presence and add value to their already thriving business. It's nice to see businesses taking advantage of PHP like this, and if things go well, I might be able to play a small role in their continued success.
