Get started with PHP-Fusion

Nick Jones

Nick Jones, the founder and lead developer of PHP-Fusion passed away on January 4th, 2011. All of us here as well as those who knew and worked with him in the wider open source community are deeply saddened by his loss. He was a truly genuine talent and great teacher. Many people who are now developers in their own right owe their skills to Nick's attitude to sharing everything he did.

Only before Christmas I moved from wordpress to phpfusion. I was curious to know about Mr. Nick Jones. Sadly only few minutes ago I found out that he has joined our Father in even.
May the Lord give you eternal peace, bless your loved ones, and give long life and prosperity to PHPFUSION.

RIP Nick Jones.


It was a shock to hear the news. RIP-You were a brilliant programmer.


His passing is a great loss for the open-source community and the world as a whole. The sole reason I started php programming at all was because I picked up PHP-Fusion several years ago in college for a few minor projects. I now use it for every website I create.

Nick, you're the reason I love php programming so much. Everything I've learned in that field stemmed from my love for this software and the lightweight elegance that I've come to expect from any programming.

You will be sorely missed. Your memory will be cherished.


Nick Jones - the most influential person of PHP-Fusion project.
Requiescat in pace Nick. We will never forget you.
