Ingewikkeld is a company of experts for building web applications. Our language of choice is PHP, although we regularly play with other languages and tools.

With Ingewikkeld, you hire experts that are active and integral parts of the global PHP community, either by maintaining open source projects, by speaking at conferences worldwide or by organizing their own conferences.

Every single expert from Ingewikkeld has one goal:

Problems need to be solved.

We use a wide variety of tools to solve problems, whether it is one of the many PHP frameworks (we've worked on projects using symfony 1, Symfony2, Zend Framework 1 and 2, Silex and Cilex amongst others), a selection of the variety of tools that were not actually written in PHP (Memcache, Varnish, Redis, etc), or any other piece of software that we need (Bolt, Vagrant, etc), we can do it.

The Ingewikkeld experts are not just about software development. They also do consulting, training and audits when required. And they are pro-active: If they see something needs to happen, they'll take the initiative and make it happen.

The Art Of Asking

With Ingewikkeld we’ve sent out a gift to some customers and other contacts. A book that has nothing to do with PHP. While this may seem odd, it definitely isn’t. What book? The Art Of Asking by Amanda Palmer…


The Inter-team Standup

For WeCamp 2014 , we were creating multiple teams that would all work on their own project. But since we wanted to maximize the exposure of all delegates to the lessons learned by all teams, we needed to create a mome…


Stop Fighting

I posted this on Facebook about an hour ago, but this is not limited to Facebook. It should not be. So I’m reposting it here. Today was a day like any other, except that it wasn’t. It was an official day of mour…


What We Can Learn From Code Spaces

A sad thing happened earlier this week to the (d)vcs hosting service Code Spaces . An unauthorized person gained access to their Amazon controlpanel, and after an attempt to extort money out of Code Spaces to stop a D…
