I am a web and mobile application developer from Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I have been developing web applications professionally since 2002. Most often I work with php5 (using Symfony + Propel + sfAltumoPlugin*), MySQL, html5, jQuery, AngularJS and css3 but I have looked and experimented with nodejs, Backbone, Google Closure, MongoDB, Redis, CouchDB and others.

I am also quite comfortable deploying and managing servers in both physical and virtual environments. I have been managing several production servers on AWS utilizing EC2, RDS, R53, S3 and their respective APIs to automate tasks.

*sfAltumoPlugin is an open source multi-purpose php 5.3+ library that I co-founded and regularly contribute to. It contains a set of high-quality, well-commented, tested "plumbing" code that I use to avoid writing the same general-purpose code over and over.

In addition to web applications, I recently got involved with mobile application development for iOS. My current focus in learning is Objective-C and relevant frameworks.

comment Modify data being proxied by nginx on the fly
Thanks for your reply! I am aware of gzip on and what I'm trying to accomplish is more high level than deflating the output. I have a proxy that controls access to certain internal web services and I wanted to be able to append things like google analytics to the output, sort of like how cloudflare does it. Like you say, it sounds like fastcgi is an option, so I'll look into that. Thanks again!

@sjdaws, not necessarily compress it, but run it through any arbitrary program and use the output as what gets sent to the client. So in essence yes, I want to modify the output going from the server to the client.
