Developing websites since 1998, mostly solo. I am familiar with early PHP weapons like e107, Joomla, MODx, later transferred to more avanced tools (frameworks): Symfony, CodeIgnighter and Zend Framework (which I still use for some projects). Finally when I felt too academic for barefootness of PHP, I switched to Python (considered Ruby also). In Python I tried Django and liked it but chose a less coupled framework Pyramid for daily use.

*Note: For such a long webdev career I have suprisingly few things to share and to be proud of. The reason is probably lack of time and motivation to perfectly document and put projects for public use. Or simply maybe because I am too shy/coward. I am trying to fix that though:)

comment Check if string contains specific words?
Regular Expressions should be the last resort method. Their use in trivial tasks should be discouraged. I insist on this from the height of many years of digging bad code.

comment Is there a ZODB Storage class implementation that runs entirely in memory?
I was looking for this and couldn't find, too. FileStorage with no parameters will create an in-memory storage but it's not effective for testing. Thanks!

comment What is the format for Xbox LIVE member profile URLs?
I guess this format doesn't work any more. Redirects on to login page :(
