Volker dusch

Volker Dusch is a Software Developer born in Germany and currently working for the Scientific Network, ResearchGate, in Berlin.

He started programming with PHP in the early PHP 4 days and has around 16 years of experience with the language and the web in general.

Having worked on big home grown legacy applications and with new 'modern' projects he is interested in keeping code maintainable so that it can be adapted fast and easily to new requirements from a code and a management perspective. In recent years learning about and getting better at people management has become his main focus.

First OSS Contact

The very first open source project I've come in contact with was an open source browser game. It was written in PHP and I wanted to start developing new content and modules for this game so with that PHP and Apache where the next couple projects. From there the journey through most open source projects that power the web had begun.

Contributer in OSS-Projekt

I used to contribute to PHPUnit, the de-facto standard PHP testing framework, from 2011 to 2014. Since then I sadly didn't find the time and energy to continue working on this or other projects.
