Derick Rethans

London, England

Hi there! I am Derick, and I am the creator of Xdebug, PHP's debugger. I have been working on Xdebug since 2002 — that's a whopping 17 years! I am currently working on creating Xdebug 3. I am refactoring the entire code base for easier maintainability, which then will result in much increased performance. To be able to work on this, I would very much appreciate your support.
