About Me


Hi, I'm Ed Lomonaco and I'm a developer who lives & works in Grand Rapids, MI.

I've been programming since 2001, when I was in high school. My first love was PHP and my first PHP app was a search engine for my website.

After making my first website in high school, I decided that this was what I wanted to do for a living.

I went to Davenport University where I got my bachelors in Computer Information Systems.

While PHP was my first love it's not my only love, I also love to work with C# which is the language I use in my day-to-day operations, though I still develop things in PHP when I work on personal projects or side projects.

Recently mobile development has been my new interest, I've been doing some mobile work and looking to do more in the near future, I prefer to work with Android than iOS.
