Apart from my professional portfolio, I have contributed to several open source projects. On this page, I keep a list of these contributions, mostly for my own reference.
Projects I started:

PHP Composter Framework
The PHP Composter framework and its accompanying extension provide an automated way for developers to include
git hooks within their source code repository. These hooks become immediately active once you’ve run
composer install , which can drastically simplify developer on-boarding.

I co-maintain the WordPress Bootstrap/Load component and contribute to various other areas of the project.
WP-CLI is a command line interface to the WordPress platform, which allows you to control your websites and execute administrative tasks through the command line.
