About Eric Poe

Eric has been a professional developer since he made a career change in 2014 from systems administration, team management, and hobbyist programmer to programming full-time. Eric is based in Kansas City and is involved with local organizations and user groups. He is a co-organizer of the Kansas City PHP User Group, where he has been a member since the early 2000s. He is also a lead mentor for the Kansas City Coder Dojo where he helps kids learn programming skills, provides a monthly curriculum, and does the social media thing.

Eric loves reading all sorts of books, watching all sorts of kung fu movies, telling and hearing dad bad jokes and puns, and terrorizing his children with all of the above. He and his children know that Han shot first, Jar-jar is an abomination, and has come to terms vis-a-vis Kirk vs Picard.

Eric is a Zend Certified PHP Engineer.
