Create reusable templates to avoid boilerplate, auto-complete variables and edit multiple lines of files at once with cursors, and find out all of the features of comparing changesets with PHPStorm's Git integration.

Hi there! I'm Mark 👋
My passion over the last decade has revolved entirely around Magento. Starting with the early days of Magento 0.8, I've had a heavy interest in the Zend and Magento Frameworks, and have been devoted to eCommerce & PHP for even longer (over 20 years!). I've held all positions within many organizations, ranging from junior developer to chief solution architect.
During this time I've spoken at conferences such as Magento Imagine and Meet Magento New York, and my LAMP stack programming expertise has paved the way for me to become a Zend Certified Engineer and Adobe Certified Magento Developer. I love open-source software, and have maintained docker-magento, the most popular development environment for Magento since the release of Magento 2.
I'm married to my wonderful wife Juliann, and we are the proud parents of twin girls Lily and Brielle. I live in Northeast Ohio and love eating chipotle burritos, solving Rubik's cubes, driving my 240sx, and watching Cleveland Browns games.
