About Alister Bulman

đź“– Summary | | If you are a contractor - sign up at and tell be able to tell all the recruiters when you're looking for a new job. If you're looking, and you have the skills they need - you get the call. I build websites - sometimes big and complicated ones, with a lot of functionality that need careful attention to issues like code quality, and scaling issues. Think of me as much of a trouble-shooter, going into a site to fix it, and make sure it can grow - a lot. My base of knowledge is large - I collect information and soak it up like a sponge - though if I don't know a particular field (that I'm actually interested in) well, I've probably got a lot of information on the subject to hand. Specialities: Linux and LAMP system architecture, Scaling & Ops. PHP Development, Zend Framework and testing (with PhpUnit), MySQL. Recently: I've been writing Symfony2 based websites and tools.Independent Consultant/Entrepreneur @ I'm Currently investigating how contract (& perm) recruitment works, with the aim of seeing if I can write a system to be able to improve it somewhat.
