About Me

Hi! My name is Nikita Popov, but you'll mostly meet me as nikic on the internet. Currently I am 20 years old and study computer science and physics at the Technical University of Berlin (Germany). My main area of interest is PHP, in particular its internal aspects.

I maintain a PHP parser written in PHP, which can be used for static code analysis and automated code manipulation.

Furthermore I'm contributing to PHP. In particular I implemented several features for PHP 5.5. Among them are generators and coroutines, as well as support for arbitrary expressions in empty()

Feel free to contact me via nikic@php.net. Alternatively you can usually find me in the PHP chatroom on StackOverflow.
