Larry Garfield has been building websites since he was a sophomore in high school, which is longer ago than he'd like to admit. Larry is currently a Staff Engineer with the TYPO3 project. Before that, he was Director of Developer Experience for Platform.sh and a long-time Drupal contributor and consultant, and led the Drupal 8 Web Services initiative that helped transform Drupal into a modern PHP platform. Larry is a member of the PHP-FIG Core Committee, and has authored several books on PHP development including "Thinking Functionally in PHP" and "Exploring PHP 8.0.".
