Welcome to

Hi, and welcome to my site. My name is Rick Rodriguez and I am a PHP developer. I have been in the information technology industry for the last 17 years. My knowledge and skill set include but is not limited to, PHP, MySQL, Jquery, HTML and CSS. I have also had extensive experience and understanding configuring web servers as well database servers.

One of the main purposes of this site, is providing information on technology issues as well as other items. I am hoping that when someone visits this site, they will leave it with something useful or at least something I have provided here.

Recruiters, please read!

If you are a recruiter with any company looking for a php developer, I am not your guy right now. I am currently not looking for work and I am happily employed. Please forgive me for not removing my resume sooner. I guess I didn't realize that having my resume in different formats on my site missled some to believe that I am/was looking for work. I am not and as soon as I am, I will post it here in big red words. Thank you for contacting me if you did.
