Eric David

Senior Developer, Right Media

One sunny day some years ago Eric David discovered PHP3 and on that very day in one fell swoop he left ASP2.0 and Perl via CGI to find their permanent resting place alongside the Eniac and Commodore 64.

Since that time Eric has been developing interesting ways for businesses to rapidly increase their revenue with minimal investment by utilizing open-source solutions.

Eric was the sixth person in New York State to become a Zend Certified Engineer (of PHP) and is also a Certified Internet Webmaster Associate. He has previously been invited to speak about web technologies at New York University (NYU) and about IT management at Stern College. Additionally, Eric has written articles for PHP Architect magazine on creating The Ultimate PHP5 Shopping Cart (double-feature spanning the August and September 2004 issues) and custom building a content management system that automatically maintains XHTML1.1 and the most stringent accessibility standards (May 2004 cover story.)
