About

Phil Nash is a developer evangelist for Twilio. Sometimes he writes code on stage in front of a crowd, hoping everything just works. Sometimes he writes open source code, which is much less stressful because if it is wrong someone else can correct it. He writes code in tweets sometimes, but not much fits. He live codes on Twitch. He blogs on this site and on the Twilio blog and you'll find plenty of code there too.

Don't ever write your own function to parse URL parameters

Sometimes the platform we are building on provides more functionality than we can keep in our own heads. However, depending on the problem, we often find ourselves trying to write the code to solve the issue rather than finding and using the existing solution provided by the platform. I almost fell for this recently when trying to parse a query string.
