My Blog

Achievements
  • I've saved several companies thousands of dollars a month by replacing outdated or expensive tools with internal tools that did the job better.
  • I've led teams numbering from 2 to 32, mentored groups and individuals and represented teams in leadership roles in front of business groups.
  • I've taken complicated infrastructures, build process and tools and simplified them, saving several companies time and money over several years.
  • I've helped development teams assess areas where they're lacking proper programming principles to dramatically reduce bugs, increase "ship to production" cycles, and improve stability of the systems the principles are applied to.
The highlights

Strongest Areas of Knowledge

HTMX, Hyperscript, Zig, Javascript (vanilla, Node, jQuery, Angular, you name it), CSS, HTML, PHP, Linux, DevOps, SysAdmin, AWS, GIT

Projects I'm Proud Of

Sending Positive Vibes - Creator - I used barebones HTML, CSS and JS to create a simple PWA app where you can tap or click to send "positive vibes" to that part of the world (on a map). I used Openstreetmaps for the map source. I also used a geohashing library to maintain the data. As vibes are sent, the map is updated so you can see it.

Zolo - Senior & Lead Developer - Updated an older infrastructure to support 4 million pageview a day. Mostly with AWS tools. Implemented new procedures and tools that increased developer productivity significantly. Found and implemented areas that gained significant performance improvements.

CATSA - Senior & Lead Developer - Created back-end architecture that supports the main website plus their mobile apps. Airport security lineup staff across Canada use my system to update wait times.

TWiT - Senior (and only) Developer - I didn't build their flagship site (although I helped) but I did build an intricate internal system that managed their audio and video files, converted them to proper formats and automatically uploaded them to proper cloud services. Then a subsequent system that automatically notified the public (and updated the website) when new shows were available for consumption.

[Insert link to your closest Jaguar / Land Rover dealer here] - Yep. I was one of three architects on a deployment and management system for the apps that go into the head units on newer Jaguar / Land Rovers. This meant some time in Coventry too! The vehicles all communicate with a complicated back-end system that manages their OS versions as well as individual apps and their versions. Super cool.

Hobbies

Spending time with my daughter, programming, raspberry pi and video games. Mentoring - I've mentored a few programmers over the years and I really enjoy it. The mentorship goes both ways. If you're interested in having a more experienced programmer mentor you, don't hesitate to reach out to me. I do it for free. :)

Employment

Note: Some of these positions overlapped when freelancing.


StartupScience

Tenure: 3.5 years (2021 - 2024)

Role: Senior Architect

Overview:

Startup Science offers a comprehensive online platform called Gravity that guides entrepreneurs through all stages of the startup lifecycle, providing courses, tools, and resources to help founders build and grow their businesses.

Key Contributions & Impact:

  • Team Management: Led a small team of developers (up to 3) with varied experience.

  • Simplified Architecture: Removed complex build process away from front-end libraries to HTMX.
  • Testing and Quality: Implemented testing practices for backend and frontend that did not exist before.
  • Grinder: Spent almost a year working entirely on my own building out features, in full, for hundreds of customers to use.

Responsibilities & Achievements:

  • Technical Leadership: Made the decisions around all the technical aspects. This was mostly honed in on PHP, Laravel, MySQL and HTMX
  • On Call Support: 24/7 on call for 3 years to resolve issues, fix production deployment issues and resolve customer support tickets
  • Business Relations: Worked with the business side to deconstruct business requirements into technical components that needed to be achieved

This is easily the company where I'm most proud of my work. I not only saved them money, I saved them time, I helped with business decision, I helped with product decisions, all while maintaining a team or working on my own to create the technical features needed. This company operates in the millions per year with thousands of users. I handled every technical aspect, from code to deployment to QA, on my own.


Centric Software

Tenure: 3 years (2020 - 2023)

Role: Senior Architect

Overview:

Centric serves many global customers like Sephora, Guess, Louis Vuitton and more. I headed their 3D department creating 3D models via a pipeline system for enterprise products.

Key Contributions & Impact:

  • Team Management: Led a small team of developers (up to 3) with varied experience.
  • Technical Presentations: Presented technical solutions to the entire company (hundreds of employees watching).
  • High Demand & Complex Architecture: Created an entire 3D pipeline in AWS, using Terraform, with an existing Java CRM integration.

Responsibilities & Achievements:

  • Updated Deployment Mechanisms: Rebuilt deployment infrastructure of their in-house CRM with updated tools & functionality so the team of two (who were the only ones who knew how to deploy and run the CRM) could benefit from the rest of the companies developers to assist
  • Internal IT Update: Built an initial installation script using Docker for IT laptops that were sent to new devs. Previously, there was no consistent build process.
  • Business Decisions: Helped with business and technical criteria when 3rd party vendors were considered for potential buyouts. These companies were being considered to faciliate our 3D pipeline using Terraform.

This was definitely one of the most challenging projects I've had in recent memory. Piping in a complex CRM system so internal users could upload 3D models and have the model get converted, compressed and then rendered back into the CRM for further edits was no small feat. On top of that, I often found myself helping out in other areas of the company that were not part of my direct responsibilities.

InSite (1 year)

Senior Developer

These guys do a few things but, for the most part, they help to convert hard cover media into digital media. I helped them get a few features out the door in their ASP.NET platform and also to build out a few simpler sites for some of their clients who required something leaner. A lot of JS, CSS, HTML.

  • Responsibilities:
    • Provide feedback on updates to an internal system they had and then execute those updates.
    • Help to manually convert some hard cover media to HTML/JS/CSS by hand.
    • Provide additional conversion tools for specific cases that needed customized conversions. This included a node.js based tool.

AppDirect (3 years)

Senior Developer & Solutions Architect

I was involved in some of the best projects I've ever worked on. I spent a few months as a senior developer on some smaller teams and then I moved up to a technical lead role where I managed up to a dozen people and a couple of ongoing projects. We mostly focused on Java, Node and PHP. We also did a bunch of Drupal. Towards the end (like, a year) I was a solutions architect working directly under the CTO.

  • Responsibilities:
    • Lead several teams ranging from 2 other developers to 13. Also ranged skillset from jr to sr.
    • Work directly with the sysadmin/devops team to introduce new methods of managing infrastructure, deploying code and more. Also helped to beef up some practices. This also required cross interactions with the programming teams. Tonnes of AWS, EC2, ElasticSearch, RDS, Load Balacing, CDN, S3 and more.
    • Troubleshooting & on call devops working with Linux or Unix systems (mostly Redhat) and solving other infrastructure problems. Lots of late night calls to jump on a server and see why Apache was failing or ensure an Ansible playbook was working correctly.

    • Help deploy and maintain code on EC2 & RDS instances.
    • Help to make front-end specific upgrades such as improvements to widgets like calendars or form inputs.

Sitepoint (6 months)

Premium PHP Editor

For a short while I had the privilege of managing the premium PHP channel on Sitepoint. I would reach out to developers and help them to come up with lessons, videos and other material for the channel. My life changed and I had to make a shift so I stepped down from this role.

  • Responsibilities:
    • Reach out to potential contributors to build relationships.
    • Work with contributors to support their creative material from start to finish.
    • Ensure finished material was properly handled for release.
    • Come up with ideas on material to create and keep in touch with the community in general.

Tabs & Spaces (1 year)

Freelance Consultant

I was one of the senior developers working on a Symantec and Norton forum / community site. This was heavily Drupal based, a mixture of 6 & 7, with a big emphasis on a javascript front-end.

Freelance Consultant

I did a number of smaller projects from a bit of javascript / html to some theming. Nothing too heavy but the projects required a bit of a senior hand.


TWiT (This Week In Tech) (2 years)

Lead Developer

In short, was an all-around computer engineer, as I helped them with everything from servers, networks and more to computers and advising them on any gadgets they needed or improvements to their computer systems that would help them become more efficient. However, my main focus was on web development with regards to their flagship site and a secondary site for their highest grossing show.

  • Responsibilities:
    • Created an internal system to take raw videos, automatically edit them and then ship them to multiple mediums for consumption.
    • Supervised a Drupal team on two websites they built to ensure the technical goals were met by the team.

Scalable Path (1 year)

Architect

Worked on a number of projects. One of the bigger projects was a health insurance quote company that provided quotes online. I helped to build and expand their quoting capabilities online. There was a lot of Javascript involved, among a few other languages. I was also a team leader of a fluctuating group size, sometimes up to 5.


BigFork Web Development (1 years)

Lead Developer

I was the lead developer on many of their client websites, helping them create new coding standards and managing their servers from time to time.


Coastal Sleep (4 years)

Lead Developer, Network Administrator, Computer Technician

I helped them upgrade their server and network infrastructure across three different offices so all their offices could communicate with each other more efficiently, which saved time and money. This role ended up being a good mix of both hardware and software work.

Lead Developer

Provided a lot of CSS, HTML and PHP coding skills to build smaller websites or enhance existing ones. Also did some work with mobile friendly sites or converting sites to a mobile friendly platform.


Paintball Gear Canada (3 years)

Lead Developer

Paintball Gear Canada is one of the largest Paintball retail companies in Canada. It has a large retail and web presence. It began as a platform PHP e-commerce system that was eventually re-done so much to suit increasing demands that it is now a beast to maintain. However, it holds itself together quite well and is able to maintain traffic that results in millions of dollars in revenue each year.
