About Rob Allen
I am Rob Allen, software consultant and developer. I also take photos.
I run my own company, Nineteen Feet where I provide consultancy, development and training to clients, concentrating on APIs.
I am the main author of Zend Framework in Action and contributed the Zend_Config core component in ZF1. I am a member of the Zend Framework Education Advisory Board which developed the Zend Framework certification exam. I was the Release Manager for Zend Framework 1 which is now end-of-life.
I have been a professional software engineer since 1995, when I graduated as an Electronic Engineer from The University of Birmingham in the UK. For six years I wrote C and C++ programs for Solaris, Linux and Windows for testing mobile radio networks. I then moved into web application programming.
