During work hours:

I am a Software Development Engineer for Amazon Web Services, the creator of the AWS SDK for PHP 1.x (neƩ CloudFusion, Tarzan), heavy user of AWS SDK for PHP 2.x, and I worked on the PHP container for AWS Elastic Beanstalk. Nowadays, I work with the AWS Console UX Team to try and unify the UI & UX of the AWS Console across services.

Outside of work hours:

I am a geek, hacker and entrepreneur. I am a software engineer who is fiercely passionate and downright obsessive about user experience. I value honesty, respect, passion, and being genuine. I believe in making tomorrow a better place than today.

comment What features would you like to have in PHP?
I would argue that since the data internally is an array, and ArrayObject wraps that with functionality, then even subclasses of ArrayObject would still be working with arrays internally. I would expect to be able to merge another standard array or ArrayObject (or subclass). As far as what it would return, I would argue that it should also return a new ArrayObject, but follow the precedent that simplexml_load_string() set where you can specify the name of the class that the result should be an instance of.
