Hi and welcome to MikeStowe.com- my name is, well Mike Stowe (weird huh). I am a professional software engineer, PHP 5.3 Zend Certified, and have over 10 years of PHP hacking experience.
In those 10 years I have had the privilege of building numerous websites and applications, including applications for the medical field, law enforcement, one of the leading audio and lighting dealers, the American Red Cross, multiple non-profits, Christian ministries, and numerous industrial companies. I was then blessed to have been able to build and manage the developer relations programs for Constant Contact and MuleSoft, before joining Tigera as their Director of Community with a focus on building a thriving community around Project Calico, an open source layer 3 approach to virtual networking and policy application with popular tools such as Mesos, Rancher, and Kubernetes.
In my spare time I try to stay on top of the industry by following multiple blogs, reading, and code hacking. And when I’m not studying or fighting crime, I enjoy being outdoors, sports, watching movies, writing, and even acting in a film here or there. I also helped organize the Twin Cities Software Engineers group, MN PHP user group, and the MidwestPHP Conference before heading West to sunny (and foggy) San Francisco, and am still active in organizing Northeast PHP and serving on the speaker committee for API:World.
