    Software Developer


    I joined Neo7even as part of a brand new team with the intention to kickstart an innovative startup project. While at it I’ve worked with PHP and Javascript to create a group of separate web app prototypes. I was able to lay out the base for the project data access layer, code part of the corporate website, scaffold the web backend and develop a javascript based (with requirejs, jquery, jquery UI and some more bits) editing app. On the backend I used a custom built PHP framework (not my decision) and MySQL.

    During my short stay on InfluAds I was responsible for implementing their new customer dashboard and help planning the data layer API to connect it. I structured, developed and deployed the whole dashboard app in Zend FW (per request), using jQuery and HighCharts javascript libraries for the UI bling. I worked mostly with PHP, Zend Framework, Javascript, jQuery, FB API (opengraph), Twitter API.

Working as a freelancer I also learned a bit more on how to manage myself, my time and my projects, as well as contacts/customers.
