Hi, my name is

Not Slim Shady, but Roberto Gardenier. Also known as Caroga. I was born in Brazil and raised in The Netherlands. You can generally find me in the Rotterdam area as well as in Utrecht, even though (and to many disbelieve) I do not live there.

I work as a Freelance Backend Developer, mostly with PHP. I'm interested in many areas of development. In my spare time I organize 010PHP and make videos.

Why the blog?

Why not? I've been programming ever since I was in my first year of college. To extend my knowledge on the matter of different programming methods/patterns/languages/anything I used information made available on blogs from others. In a nutshell: people sharing their knowledge is what helped me getting more skilled in what I do.

This is my way of trying to give back to the community.

Don't worry, I also like to make music, watch all kind of movies and hang out with my friends, so this blog most likely will not only include development stuff.

If you want to contact me you can do so by sending a email to info@caroga.net
