We Are Marmalade🔗
As a previous employer I was involved in many internal projects for Marmalade including their flagship products
I worked at Marmalade for just over 18 months. Whilst there I saw and had my hand in it's technical evolution.
The company started on PHP5.4, using a very custom procedural framework. Over time, we moved this to PHP5.6 and introduced industry standard tools such as Composer, Guzzle HTTP, and PHPUnit.
Laravel was attempted to be introduced, however it was put to the side for Symfony - a fair choice.
Some of my favourite achievements here are;
- Reducing the costs of Vehicle lookups by over 60% a month
- Development of 0-down-time custom deployment solution
- Introduction of development processes such as PSR-2, using an IDE, and more.
