I began my web journey by building templates for Elgg based websites.
That required that I learn PHP.
Since then, I’ve had my share of Elgg and other framework based sites like Wordpress, Pligg, etc.
I got so tired of the complexity of all these systems, and their high learning curve that I decided to build my own. For two years, I dug deep into those other systems to see how they ticked. I wrote my own framework called HipPHP from the ground up. I built few sites with HipPHP, but as it grew, my concerns about it’s stability, and security led me to abandon the project.
I decided it was time to find a stable framework that I could trust, and that didn’t have a steep learning curve. I found Laravel, and it was a good fit from the start. It just made sense. I’m comfortable with Laravel
