Philipp Krenn lives in Vienna, Austria and studies software engineering. Besides being a student, he also works as a freelance IT trainer and web developer (mostly using SilverStripe, but also some Drupal, CakePHP, and Smarty). Philipp started using SilverStripe in 2007 while he was one of the students at the Google Summer of Code improving the project. While kicking off the effort to support multiple databases (besides MySQL), he got a good insight into the inner workings of the project. Building on top of that, he became an expert in developing web applications with SilverStripe.
