Hi 👋

My name is Dean Blackborough (that shouldn't be a suprise as it is my username).

I've been a web developer for more than twenty years, mostly PHP, however I dabble with lots of other languages.

Since 2019 I've been concentrating on @coststoexpect.

Costs to Expect is a service we are building which includes an Open Source REST API, a commercial app and a long-term social experiment, have a look if that sounds interesting.

  • 🔭 I’m currently working on @coststoexpect
  • 🔭 I’m hoping to be working on PHP Quill renderer soon
  • 📫 How to reach me: My email is on my profile
