    ANSI C/Lua/PHP Developer

    Ukraine - Last active: 4 months ago - Tests: 1

    First things first, so: I'm a C-developer, it's my primary skill. I have more than 6 years of software development, generally web-oriented, large-scale applications. I love to develop robust, scalable solutions. I've studied different methods of data storage and processing. Algorithms, data structures, binary trees, b-trees, hash algorithms such as linear hashing of Lytvyn and dynamically extensible hashing, all this helped me to understand more deeply the structure of data storage systems and a hardware layer impact for such systems. I'm a Vim-er. I'm not afraid of the command shell and I know how to write, compile, link and debug my applications in several environments including Windows / Mac OS X / Linux using my sweet ANSI C compiler. And I love Lua :) Additional Skills: * Advanced knowledge level of Lua VM internals, I have implemented next modules for Lua VM: libsocket (full support of TCP and UDP, fully transparent IPv4 and IPv6 agnostic code), libutil (for cryptographic digests as SHA256, CRC32 and other utils), libjson (serialization and deserialization of Lua internal data structures), libdb (high performance key-value database engine). All modules are cross-platform and can be compiled for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. * Deep knowledge level of technics for writing high performance custom made servers and network services. Know the difference between sockets polling (event-driven) and threading and then to use one or another. * Good knowledge level of SQL (SQLite, MySQL, PostgreSQL) and deep knowledge level in writing of custom non-relational high performance database engines. Stack Overflow Careers: Willing to relocate.

    Systems Administrator and Engineer

    United States - Last active: 01/17/2014 - Tests: 2

    I am a Systems Administrator with over 10 years in the field. I took my first computer apart and successfully reassembled it at the age of 7. I was soon programming in BASIC shortly after. I decided to tackle Linux as a project at the age of 15. I am completely self taught and continue to keep myself current with the fast paced changes in technology. My curiosity and imagination are by far my best assets. I'm not content with simply knowing that something works, I am driven to understand how as well. This is why, when I had made up my mind to develop my first website, started by teaching myself how to set up the Apache web server first. Then I had to learn DNS, because I wasn't about to host my site without a resolvable domain name. I quickly moved on to teaching myself PHP and MySQL so that I could make my site dynamic. I got my foot in the door with the IT business at a small ISP named JAS Networks. It was here I learned about DSL service and networking. I moved on to provide general IT support for a small jewelry store named Pearlman's Jewelers. I eventually moved all of Pearlman's Jewelers' web based services locally in house by utilizing my contacts and networking experience to acquire a T1 line for the business. The website and email were then hosted from the building itself, saving the company hundreds of dollars a month. Eventually I moved on to Liquid Web, which at the time was a small web host ran by a crew of 15. I learned a lot at Liquid Web both in regards to systems administration and customer service. I was the first escalation technician Liquid Web ever had, due to my habit of singling out more difficult customer problems and correcting them. It wasn't long before Liquid Web wanted to start building their own custom solutions, at which point I was chosen by their newly appointed Engineering department lead, Mike Neir, to be one of the first two Engineers for the company. After several years of long service to the company, I finally moved on to S2 Games. I helped them build the necessary network services for their successful and award winning game Heroes of Newerth. I also developed several solutions catered to their needs. It was here that I began to first teach myself about continuous automation services such as Puppet and Chef. A necessity for the administration of the large number of machines they had hosted around the world. I served as the sole Systems Administrator and Systems Engineer for S2 for several years, and learned a lot during my time there. I also developed a large number of backup solutions, including one which allowed taking binary differential backups of a live database service without interrupting the service. Currently I do contract level work for a company in Lansing called Select Resources. I am working on site migrations and continuous automation solutions for their client Zondervan as the company as it moves forward into the future of cloud based hosting. Over the years I have picked up several skills to complete what I feel is a formidable arsenal when it comes to troubleshooting complex problems, setting up services, or automating the entire setup of datacenters full of machines from a bare metal state. I am also a skilled developer in C/C++, JAVA, Lua, bash, PERL, Ruby, PHP and Python. I am extremely familiar with website specific application development technologies such as HTML, Javascript, CSS and Websockets. I have done extensive work on developing web applications utilizing AJAX and even wrote my own AJAX library before more complete libraries like jQuery were developed and available. My current career goal is to simply learn more and continuously improve my skills. My friends would most likely describe me as being intelligent, with a kind and giving heart. I am proud of my accomplishments, yet humble enough to accept direction and leadership without complaint. I have often been called upon in my past jobs to provide IT consulting services in areas unrelated to what my current job was at the time.
