Current & Past Projects
A lightweight PHP/SQLite blogging platform that's an on-and-off hobby project of mine. It's meant to be lighter and easier to use than WordPress and especially more performant on free or shared hosts.
A plugin for the Spigot Minecraft server that allows server operators to set automatic gamemode rules for WorldGuard regions.
Skills & Experience
Lead Backend DeveloperFriendsy (June 2015 — present)
- Duties included developing new API features for mobile clients, maintaining & scaling our infrastructure on AWS, and optimizing existing server-side code.
- Over two weeks, I rewrote our Chef configuration scripts and optimized many of our most-hit codepaths, which caused the average app start-up time to drop from 350ms to 75ms.
- I developed a number of internal tools to help my coworkers and myself manage the Friendsy platform easily and more efficiently.
- I also created our unit-testing suite from scratch as an intern during the summer of 2015.
