Me

I am a high-skilled, self-taught programmer with 10+ years of experience. I'm most proficient in PHP, but I will do any task in any language when necessary.

I have very high stamina, so I can work for a very long time, I casually stay at work for 24+ hours. I'm very persistent and won't back down from a challenge. I'm a perfectionist, I can't do "that'll do". If I need something I don't know, I will learn it, I've taken on a project in past that I realized later wouldn't work in PHP, so over the weekend I learned basics of JAVA and did it in JAVA. I don't use frameworks, because I don't need them and they throttle performance, but again I will use one if I have to.

As anyone else with all the positive qualities I have a negative one, I have insomnia combined with very deep sleep and nothing I've tried so far helps and I've tried many different things, I'm writing this at 4am after taking sleeping pills, so I need a flexible schedule.

My other interests are driving, working on my cars, tattoos, knives and esports.

I developed a Facebook betting application for an online gambling website called Lider-bet converting an existing betting system they have on their website.

I created back-end API based on sockets for a checkers game for the same gambling website (Lider-bet) and integrated it with their back-end. First I created the socket server in PHP, but PHP didn't have a good support of sockets, so with no prior knowledge of JAVA I learned basics of JAVA and converted the code I had written in PHP to JAVA in 2-3 days and finished the project in JAVA. I also created the admin panel for the game.
