Stephen Sabatini has 11 years of PHP experience, 7 years of solid WordPress experience, and a strength for SEO programming and UX design. He is constantly educating himself on the latest technologies.
At age 12 I began with 3D modeling and game development. There was a point during my project where I needed to hook up my scripts to a database. I researched and decided I needed a SQL database and after researching server-side language trends I had decided on using PHP.
From there I began a passion for developing on the web. I began working on my own website as well for my project since I already had the server to do it with. Possibilities expanded, there were so much more opportunities on the internet. I absolutely loved what I was doing! I went ahead and kept constantly updating myself on all of the latest standards from W3C.
Around age 14 I began freelancing my web development services. It was really rough and there was a ton of competition! You could literally apply to jobs all day. Freelance jobs never paid well, but that didn't matter to me at the time because it was what I loved to do.
When it comes to my trade, there is nothing I enjoy more. I am always striving to learn more and educate those around me as much as I can. At work, I strive to be the best at what I do. After work, I like to invent new and innovative ways to streamline the many processes in our industry.
When I'm not developing, I typically enjoy downhill mountain biking, PC gaming, chilling with friends or enjoying quality food and coffee in Baltimore city. When it comes to TV shows I am currently addicted to 30 Rock, but my all-time favorite is The Walking Dead.
