Hello, my name is Martin

I was born in Pleven, a town in the central north region of my beautiful country - Bulgaria. After finishing school I moved to the capital - Sofia and lived there for 10 years. I’ve spend my time building a career and extensive experience in a couple of web development companies.

In the last few years I did some work for foreign companies in Copenhagen, Hamburg and Vienna, including consulting the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). All of this led to a decision to try moving to another country and seeing what would it be to work full-time there. I’ve joined the London based NDP as a senior Drupal developer in late December 2013.

I am a programmer - web developer and open source software enthusiast. My expertise lies with LAMP setups (Linux/Apache/mySQL/PHP). I am capable of administering a variety of Linux distributions, Debian being my choice most of the time.

My primary skills are as a PHP developer and I possess considerable knowledge of JavaScript, HTML and database design & management. I’ve been working with PHP & mySQL since 2003 (12+ years of commercial experience). In that time I’ve been responsible for the development of a few custom CRM systems and countless web sites and applications. For some of these I’ve used frameworks like CodeIgniter and Symfony, and for others I’ve build my own code base from scratch.

In the last 8 years I’ve been focusing mainly on Drupal projects. Traditionally my role has been developing custom modules, extending contributed modules and helping the team by solving challenging technical problems. Currently my work on Drupal projects consists mostly of writing custom modules communicating with different 3rd party systems via SOAP or REST APIs and migrating data from various legacy databases. I have also contributed some modules (webform_term_opts as an example) and patches to other modules. My Drupal.org profile has more related information.

Lately, I’ve been more interested in JavaScript based stacks (Node.js, AngularJS, Vue.js) and machine learning and looking forward to use them more in the future.

Please get in touch if there’s something I can help with in your current or future projects.
