Welcome to bradino.com a LAMP (Linux / Apache / MySQL / PHP) Development Blog by Brad Dierking.

This site is a work in progress so please excuse the dust and come back often.

On a daily basis I find myself “Googling” for the answer to something and almost inevitably I find it. Someone with more experience, who had already run into the same problem I was experiencing, found the solution through whatever means, and posted it on the internet for all to share. The key to this exchange was that the person took the time to share online with everyone what they had experienced. There is nothing profound on this site. This site is simply my small gift back, with the hope that someday I will get someone unstuck. Please email me if you want me to blog about something in particular that has you stuck…


I was born and raised in Stockton, California (about 45 miles south of Sacramento). In 1999 I moved to San Diego to attend college. During college I started doing freelance web development, gaining invaluable experience.

Many years later I am now a PHP/MySQL Developer working full-time at a leading Online Advertising Agency in Downtown San Diego. Online Advertising is a fast-paced, exciting industry, that I thoroughly enjoy being a part of.
