I'm a (mainly PHP) software engineer, and would find time to learn Node if it wasn't for all these pesky projects that keep cropping up
Now available for UK freelance projects, see below.
CURRENTI'm working on a crawler-based web app to refresh job data directly from employer sites, and to present it on a searchable map. It's in prototype form, but it does work, even if the UX needs a fair bit of improvement. Please do let me know if you get an interview as a result of using it.
FINISHEDI've written a PHP application development tutorial for beginners. Code changes are illustrated in diffs and are explained in the text from first principles. Give it a go, and feel free to add feedback.
SIDE PROJECTIf you have seen a programming tutorial online with serious security issues, let Awooga know about it or tweet it to me. An alpha project to report non-optimal tutorials - there's a lot of 'em. I need to promote this a bit more!
A little about me:
- I have interests in teaching programming, web crawling and P2P technology, as well as several other ideas.
- I've written about how to ask questions on StackOverflow. I am an active voter here, and will often down-vote questions that have not been researched, feature unabashed direct requests for solutions, or if some substantial assistance has not been replied to. That said, I do try to be nice to beginners!
Freelance (read more here):
- I am working full-time on my own projects at present, and am planning to take on some freelance work in parallel. My bread and butter is backend PHP and relational databases.
- If you have a new project, or an existing one that could use some TLC, drop me a line. I prefer UK companies but am open to other conversations if you have overseas hiring experience. Please send me your company website address, so I can get a feel for what you do.
- I like Slim, Propel, Guzzle, Plates, but am happy to fit into whatever MVC stack you have.
- My dev environment tends to use Git, NetBeans, Linux, GitHub/BitBucket, PhpMetrics, PHPUnit, Spiderling/PhantomJS, Composer, Bower. I recommend Scrutinizer for continuous code quality analysis.
- I'm happy to have a no-obligations chat about your project.
Get in touch?
- Find the 'About' page of my blog, there's an email address there. Or the Twitter above should be OK.
