Content Management Systems VS Frameworks and What is a Content Management Framework

Most people are familiar with and default to using content management systems. While I think they are a great tool I feel like there are a lot of misconceptions about frameworks and how they compare.

About Me

My name is Robert Parker and I am a full stack developer for Dorey Design Group in Portland OR. I am available for PHP Web Application and HTML5/Javascript projects. Since I have a day job I am only available on nights and weekends.

In my spare time I am contributing to the projects I love or learning a new skill. I have been interested in game development for a while and am learning Unity and C#. When I am not programming I am playing a video game, watching anime or spending time with friends and family.


I focus on custom web applications built with PHP. My applications are hosted on my own server that is managed with puppet. Even though PHP is my focus I am also available for JavaScript, hosting and consulting.

My teaching career was at a stand still due to a long cancer battle. Robert Parker created a beautiful website which almost immediately reignited interest in my performing and teaching reputation. I now receive numerous inquires about my teaching and other activities and I am as busy as my schedule permits.
