Hi πŸ‘‹ My name is Caen De Silva

Fullstack Web Developer, Software Engineer, & Avid Open Source Enthusiast

About me

With a background in freelance front-end development, nowadays I am mainly building open source apps with PHP and the Laravel ecosystem. For example, I created the static site generator HydePHP.

  • 🌍  I'm based in Sweden πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺ

  • πŸš€Β  I'm currently working on HydePHP and other fun experiments!
  • 🧠  I love learning, and am currently learning how to create Composite GitHub Actions.
  • 🀝  I'm open to collaborating on HydePHP and anything else I'm working on!
  • ⚑  I'm always open to constructive criticism. If you see a mistake in my code, let me know, and send a PR!
  • 🎩 You probably know me as the creator of HydePHP, the Laravel-based static site generator.


I've been creating websites for over eight years, about four of which are with PHP and three with Laravel. I favour object-oriented code, and I love working with a Git-based workflow. I've studied computer science and taken programming classes since I was young, equipping me with a solid foundation for becoming a self-taught developer able to quickly pick up new languages and frameworks.
