Hi. I'm Ben Edmunds.

I create software, lead engineering teams, and solve problems to generate profit for businesses.


With over a decade of experience in the industry I've worked on everything from enterprise software to robotics. Currently my focus is creating web, mobile, and chat applications. I co-host the PHP Town Hall podcast. I've authored a couple books on security, Securing PHP Apps (Apress) and Securing Node JS Apps. I enjoy contributing to open source, notably, Ion Auth. I'm a member of the CodeIgniter Council Steering Committee and the CodeIgniter Security Team.

My experience both as a software developer and as a C-suite executive gives me the rare ability to bridge the gap between business needs and technology concerns.

Working together means we'll partner on projects to dig in to your business problems and architect a technology solution that provides outsized value to your organization.

I've also had the pleasure of working with some great companies

and on some really fun projects


My goal is always to add value to your business so reach out even if you don't see a perfect match below.

Custom Web Application Development

A flexible and platform independent way to get your ideas in front of a large percentage of internet users.

Whether it's a custom application I develop for you, off the shelf software, enterprise software, or a hybrid; I can evaluate your needs to help you decide the right path forward.

Custom Mobile Application Development

Mobile is quickly gaining market share over all other mediums that people use to access the internet.

We'll determine if you're better off developing a mobile web application, a native mobile app, or updating your current web application/web site to be responsive and mobile friendly then work together to implement the best solution.

Chatbot Development & Automation

If you or your team are frequently losing hours to repetitive tasks it may be time to evaluate what options you have to automate various processes.

Chatbots help fully integrate this into your workflow without interrupting efficiency by giving you a familiar interface for interacting with your automation processes.

Web Application Security Review

Security exploits cost an estimated $445 billion annually to businesses worldwide. You don't have to lose sleep over insecure software or be surprised by an exploit.

If you've recently had a security breach or if you simply want to ensure you never have one, I'll preform a thorough review of your web application code to indentify areas of concern along with a roadmap to secure your application.


I've been fortunate enough to speak at conferences around the world, here are some recent talks.


I've written two books, Securing PHP Apps (Apress) and Securing Node JS Apps.

Let's work together.
