Andrei Zmievski
Developer, Analog

Web site | @a

I’m Andrei Zmievski, a web developer and founding member of Analog, living and working in San Francisco. Prior to forming Analog, I was Open Source Fellow at Digg and a platform engineer at Yahoo.

As a core developer of PHP and a member of the PHP Group, I help curate development of the world’s most popular (and open source) web development language. Along the way, I started PHP-GTK, helped create Smarty, co-wrote PHP Developer’s Cookbook, and have been serving as the architect of the Unicode and internationalization support in PHP 6.

I’m a regular speaker at leading conferences like OSCON, as well as PHP events worldwide. To keep a healthy mix with my technical work, I’m training for the Paris marathon in 2010, which should offset my dedication to fine food. I love good beer, brew some of my own, and if you ever want to try a craft beer yourself, I can heartily recommend North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout.
