I’m John Bafford. I’m a freelance developer, specializing in PHP and Symfony application development and legacy application remediation.

I was the Vice President of Programming Services at The Brick Factory, based in Washington, DC.

I was a Co-Founder and CTO at WiseGuy, an online peer tutoring platform.

For over 15 years, I’ve been doing web application development in PHP. Besides that, I’ve done work in C/C++, Objective C, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, shell scripting, and other languages. I have written a rather large quantity of software.

I’ve also enjoy hiking and beer brewing. In 2016, I completed a six-month thru-hike of the nearly-2200 mile Appalachian Trail.

I currently live in Silver Spring, MD.

I graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park in May 2000 with a degree in Computer Science.

I am a Zend Certified PHP Engineer.
