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 Alternatively you can usually find me in the PHP chatroom on StackOverflow.
