About Phil Eddies

Welcome to Geeks Hangout!

Hi, I’m Phil Eddies, creator of this site, father of two and full time Infrastructure and Security Manager in the Hospitality industry living in the UK.

I have been working in the IT industry full time for over twenty years. I spent my early career as a first line Service Desk Analyst working my way up through various 2nd line, 3rd line, system administrator and management positions.

Over the years I have earned many industry certifications including an MCSE, CCNA and ITIL.

I originally created this site to learn PHP and it initially acted as my own personal knowledge base. But it has grown to help over 25K unique visitors a month.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my two boys and my wife. During my downtime I also love to cycle and am into Sci-Fi, comics, and many other pursuits that some may call “Geeky”
