Toby Powell-Blyth

Symfony at Mr and Mrs Smith

After spending a childhood glued to an Atari 400, Toby Powell-Blyth read CompSci at Aberystwyth University and jumped straight into writing classic ASP. He soon discovered PHP3, then PHP4, and has never looked back. An illustrious cavalcade of projects followed, from websites about steam pumps (!) to print management solutions and managing a team that built sites such as Links of London, Matches Fashion and Blue Inc.

About Toby Powell-Blyth

Having learned from all his mistakes, Toby is Technical Director at Mr & Mrs Smith, where he built the amazing development team and architected the REST-like API / Symfony stack and internal sales tools, which are hammered by British Airways Holidays, American Express and Dial-a-flight.
