The serverside development journey started off slow but Philip quickly learned the art of RTFM and appreciated the PHP docs for the reference it was. His first paying job was developing a file management system for a design firm who had a client that wanted to allow their clients to easily upload and view project files. This started a on-off 3 year professional relationship as the lead developer on projects with the design firm Amedia Creative.
In 2009 on opportunity emerged to help develop the website for a Harvard Student Organization, IMUSE. In 2010, the Bienmoyo Foundation was looking for a django developer to assist in the development of their prenatal patient care web application and so Philip decided he'd be up for the challenge of learning Django and python after years of PHP. The change was for the best though as Django now became his goto hammer.
