Scalable web expert with database, programming and UI experience
Last active: 08/18/2014
My strongest area of expertise is with the design of websites that scale to many servers. My main skill sets are (in order of expertise):
programming languages: Lua, C, PHP, Shell (Bash mostly), Python
web servers: Nginx, Apache, Litespeed
SQL databases: PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQLite
no-SQL databases: Couchbase/Membase, Memcached, Redis
server admin: Linux (Ubuntu, Debiab, Red Hat/Fedora)
My most extensive work has been based around Nginx and Openresty, for which I have written many modules - some of which can be found below:

I am a UK national, but am currently living in South America.
I have been doing IT development for about 10 years. Most of this has been for my own projects that I have set up, but I have about 3 years on/off experience with doing short- and long-term contract work, as well as working for around a year with a Silicon Valley startup that develops language-translation apps (vocre.com).
