So who exactly is SecondVersion? Eric Sizemore

My name is Eric Sizemore and I am 36 years old. I am from a small town in south-eastern Kentucky called Corbin; you have most likely never heard of it. To be honest, that is okay, as most people haven’t. 😉 The only claim to fame that Corbin really has is that it is home to the very first Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant. I now live in Shelbyville, Kentucky. Many folks also know me as SecondV, SV, or Version2. The question I am often asked most often is what exactly does SecondVersion mean? I have never had an answer, to be honest. The best answer I can come up with is that when I started my online presence back in 2004, I saw it as a “second version” of myself.

Ahh, the Internet

The Internet. A blessing and a curse, at times. I am an Internet “junkie” and have been since I was a kid. My first foray, and experience, with the Internet was in 1995 when I was in the fifth grade. I was eleven years old at the time and little did I know just how involved I would become.

That is when I fell in love with computers, and then the internet. I was not really bitten by the Internet bug until 2004, when we finally got our first computer. And boy, were those the days. I will just say that I certainly do not miss the good ‘ole AOL dial-up connection.

Programming and Projects

Over the past 12+ years I have taken on many hats which include web developer, programmer, and “domainer”. My journey into programming and open source begin in early 2005, when I became self-taught in PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In a perfect world, I would like to add a few more languages to my repertoire, such as Python and Go.

One of the many things I absolutely love working on is PHP projects. While I prefer to spend most of my time working on open source, I am not adverse to working on private or commercial projects. I am open to thoughts and ideas for a project, and you can reach out to me if you would like. There are no guarantees I will take on any given project, but I will see what I can do. 🙂
