Montréal, Canada



Philippe Gamache contributes to PHP since 1999: promotion, participation at local user groups, organizing conferences, speaking at conferences and writing technical articles. He works especially with Symfony, specializing in security, code quality, and performance.

Co-author of a PHP security book called “Sécurité PHP 5 et MySQL 5.” He was a member of the executive board of Montreal’s OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) group for several years.

Now a big part of his work it’s to bring the PHP community to adopt new tools like kuzzle to add a real-time engine, subscription and notification mechanisms, geolocation/geofencing, advanced search features and more protocols to their applications.

Il travaille particulièrement avec Symfony, se spécialisant dans la sécurité, la qualité du code, et de la performance.

Il fut membre du conseil exécutif de la section montréalaise de l’OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) pendant plusieurs années.

Maintenant, une grande partie de son travail est d’amener la communauté PHP à adopter de nouveaux outils comme Kuzzle pour ajouter un moteur en temps réel, des mécanismes d’abonnement et de notification, du géorepérage, des fonctionnalités de recherche avancée et plus de protocoles à leurs applications web.

Philippe Gamache is a member of the community since November 2011.
