About Paul Arlott
I'm a PHP/MySQL developer, I split my time between developing clearFusionCMS, fusionLib, doing freelance PHP development work and working for TOLRA & Attitude e-media.
I created TOLRA Micro Systems Limited in 1997, and I oversee the United Kingdom branch of Attitude e-media now. TOLRA offers premium web hosting services & custom programming, and also now have Atlantic Hosting for the more budget conscious web hosting. TOLRA offers servers in the UK, USA and Australia to provide the best possible platforms for SEO's to market their client sites worldwide.
I began my career in the aviation industry building functional prototype displays for human factor analysis. This type of work has allowed me a deep understanding of the importance of continual client collaboration for the duration of a project. I have extensive experience in C/C++ which provided a sound foundation for expanding to PHP and MySQL development which is now almost exclusively my development platform.
My development environment
My development environment has changed a lot over the years, but now it has stabilized as:
- PhpStorm as editor of choice
- SmartGit/Git for version management
- Ubuntu Desktop for the operating system
And after hours?
Through the exploration and use of mobile technology I've been able to free myself from the traditional office desk while maintaining an exemplary level of customer service.
When I'm not engrossed in analysing a new technique or technology I can be found in the great outdoors, travelling the World and enjoying all that has to offer.
In 2011 I was a judge for the Australian Web Awards for the web development category and was invited back again in 2012 and 2013.
