Hello, I’m Stephen Rees-Carter, a Senior Developer, Security Analyst, and International Speaker from Brisbane, Australia. I spend most of my time working at Defiant (we make Wordfence), and the rest of it either on WithExtraVeg with my wife Gen, or some other small projects.

I’ve been a PHP developer since high school, mainly focusing on Laravel development in the last few years. I love the simplicity and elegance of Laravel, and that flows into my choices of front-end frames too – I’m currently using Vue and Stimulus, depending on the use case. I used to be a Ubuntu desktop user, but have since moved to Windows 10, with Windows Subsystem for Linux to meet my local development and command line needs. (Seriously, WSL is awesome, try it!)
