COMMUNITY

VOLUNTEERISM & COMMUNITY INTERACTION

  • In more than one opportunity I worked together with the PHP Main Development Teams from the PHP Group identifying and proposing solutions for structural bugs and/or improvements that I’ve identified and reported. The most recent was a critical flaw affecting the block interpretation during language parsing into the constructors of the interpreter;
  • On many occasions, I’ve been involved with Linux Core Development discussions, including additional systems and specific distros (I.e.: KDE, Debian, etc.);
  • There are several valuable contributions and solutions of mine on a variety of subjects and technical questions in Stack Overflow and its parents’ sites;
  • As a hobbyist, I also participate with Quora in many scientific and correlated subjects.

R&D AND OPEN-SOURCE PROJECTS

  • MOODFIRED, a pseudo framework built in PHP that expands the OOP constraints to allow non-OOP static functions and libraries to seemingly integrate with other Frameworks, Classes, and objects without any modification, allowing old product migrations to take advantage of new technologies while staying fully functional during complex upgrading/revamping processes;
  • Enrouter, a re-routing system that allows a real-time granular level of URL rerouting and Verbs implementation for PHP that adds single-point control and firewalled access with new data handling and security advantages
  • Sherlock, a small library that tracks, traces, and display errors, warnings, and hidden server errors in PHP products to expedite debugging during RAD (Rapid Application Development)
  • DBooster, direct-to-socket Database Access Layer for PHP and other languages that can simultaneously handle multiple database systems’ connections to manage and operate BigData without exploding the Server Memory or compromising performance
  • Insight, a small replacement for VARDUMP and PRINT_R that displays Data, Objects, Variables, and Arrays in the screen with collapsible options and data recognition for quick visualization during RAD

Projects

I am always involved with new projects and ideas not necessarily involving businesses or contracts. Most of the time it is the best way to try new things and stay up-to-date and fresh. However, every now and then some of those unpretentious projects gain relevance and become something more...

CONTACT

Feel free to reach out to me with business proposals, contract options, or a job offer. I am always willing to meet new people, learn about new projects. and entertain opportunities that may expand my network of connections and businesses.
