Over the years I’ve developed a lot of web scrapers of different complexity mostly using PHP (simplehtmldom, browserkit) and NodeJS/PhantomJS (casperjs). Some were simple regex-based and others were complex distributed systems with multiple proxies and Amazon AWS support.
Last two years I was working as MMO game (Clash of Clans/Heroes of Might and Magic-like mechanics) logic/backend developer. I’ve implemented distributed message queues, realtime leaderboards with Redis, Mysql, PHP. Developed battle-related algorithms (game unit classes, attack/defend, shortest path, quadtree).
