I'm Martin Sarsini, a Freelance Full-stack Web Developer and CTO with work base in Berlin and Glasgow.
I am a Full-stack Web Developer with a focus on back-end development using PHP and Symfony. In everything I do, I incorporate principles of Clean Code throughout my work. I am experienced in designing, architecting, and constructing complex systems that effectively address real-world problems.

As a Full-stack Web Developer, my expertise lies in creating robust and customizable Web Applications using PHP and various frameworks, with a preference for Symfony. I have experience utilising various SQL databases, such as MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL, and utilising ORM libraries like Doctrine to interact with them.
I have been working with PHP for over 15 years, starting from version 4.3. Throughout this time, PHP has undergone significant improvements and remains one of the most prominent languages in web development.
Adopting PHP and Symfony offers several business advantages such as cost-effectiveness in both development and deployment, and access to a vast and active community of developers to aid in resolving technical issues.
I believe that being an outstanding programmer involves more than just technical proficiency. As technologies are constantly changing, it's important to also focus on other key aspects of software development.
Strong teamwork and communication skills are crucial in software projects, as they serve to enhance collaboration and meet the needs of customers.
Writing clean code is also crucial because it facilitates understanding and maintenance of the software by others, and it make it easy to update and troubleshoot, which is particularly important in software development.
