Hi and Welcome,

My name is Beno!t POLASZEK, and I'm a 30 years-old guy, living near Lille, in the extreme North of France.

For half of my life now, I've been interested in computers and technology.
I'm a sympathetic fellow who loves to create things and share his knowledge.

I actually work as a web developer, specialized in e-commerce, logistics, merchandising and customer relationship.

Scroll down, you'll learn more about me.

My weapons

PHP5

PHP5

I can speak fluent PHP5. I really love that language, since PHP3. I can talk about OOP, Design Patterns, Interfaces, Traits, Iterators, SPL, and more.

MySql

MySQL

I'm aware enough of MySql performance, security, and tuning to deliver fast and reliable applications.
I can speak SQL at the early morning around a coffee.

Apache Solr

Apache Solr

I don't know a bloody word of Java, but with the help of the Solarium Library, I can easily build a search engine with facets, sorts, and spellcheck.

Symfony

Symfony 2

This framework is extremely powerful and well-coded. It gave me the love of PSR-standards, composer, annotations and reusability.
One day, I'd love to play with Laravel too.

PhpStorm

PHPStorm

This is by far the best PHP IDE I've even worked with. My productivity and my coding quality improved so much that I purchased my own Developer License.

HTML 5

HTML 5

HTML5 helped in giving semantics to the content. It also helps the web of being the web of today.
I read some blogs once, talking about HTML5.
Just kidding, I'm comfortable with it.

Bootstrap

Bootstrap

Because sometimes we want something fast to implement and easy to customize without having to reinvent the wheel.

Sylius

Sylius

Actually that's not a weapon I've already used. However, built on top of Symfony Components, it looks like the best quality code ever for an e-commerce platform.
I'd really like to deploy something with it sometime.

Coffee

I don't do drugs. But I do coffee. That's almost the same for me. Coffee goes in, code goes out.

“Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.”

Portfolio

Actually, it's hard for me to give you links on my works, since I've mostly been on back-end projects.
Just keep in mind I was behind the scenes (back-end, logistics, BI, but also merchandising) when you buy on Webdistrib.com, Imenager.com or Rapid-Flyer.com.

But I'm a nice person, so here is a little photo gallery of my own to make you wait until the next section.

This is a cool background picture
