Its the first post!
Here's the Website for info about a suite of tools I wrote in PHP to aid Continuous Delivery of Web Applications. The idea behind Pharoah Tools is that Continuous Delivery tools that can be modified for PHP apps do exist, but why add extra technologies into our LAMP stack if we could have it all in PHP ... and now we can!
I've been a lover of tech since childhood, and in more recent times have performed the roles of developer, tester, systems administrator, hardware support, network support, field support, higher ed student and script kiddy on AMOS Basic (the last one wasn't a job, but it was where I learned how much I love tech so it gets in the list). So, at the time of writing I'm a build engineer and tester for the Beeb, who are pretty well loved in the industry (at least for their implementation of Agile).
In regards to the general focus of this site, the intention is to hopefully to be a central hub for updates, downloads, documentation, bugs, features and all the usual software malarky for Pharoah Tools...
So, my primary weapon of choice is PHP. Its the language that I have the most experience in, I've been using it for years, it's the most popular language on the Web and unfortunately one which could do with a bit of a boost in being as agile friendly within its stack as some others (Ruby and Java). You should probably expect that you'll see very many tips, tricks and principles that apply to performing builds and Continuous Integration/Delivery/Deployment in general - with a focus on doing it for PHP applications in an automatey testy way- thats stlll efficient.
Thanks for having a look, hopefully you'll like the software, use it in your environment, and contribute Modules, Features, Bugfixes or even just comments - it all helps.
