Juliette is an all round consultant and web-developer who tries not be a geek. Having started with client-side web development in 2000, she furtively tried to avoid server-side web until she was forced to learn PHP at knife-point in 2002 and found herself hooked quite quickly. As she herself would put it 'It is more fun than Sudoku, and just as challenging to get it right'. She actively contributes to a number of open source projects, has published several articles and speaks at conferences. Juliette is self-employed and based in the Netherlands.
