Developer - Amateur Photographer - Linux Person
Coding is a passion ♥
Originally from Birmingham, educated in Kidderminster, and now living in Malvern, I find myself as an Operations Manager by day, and by night a combination of developer, winemaker, scam-baiter, and amateur photographer, but terrible at DIY.
I mainly work with PHP, NodeJS, Python, perl and Java, but I have also been known to work with C#, Go, Delphi and C++ - from my first published application on a UK magazine called PC Format in 1998, to a follow-up on .NET in 2001, I moved into web applications. Firstly into ASP, but then onto PHP where I came runner up for an Enterprise competition for a hosting project I worked on. After that, I came joint second place for a PHP SMS One-Time-Password implementation which could be used for two-factor authentication. Recently though, I have been working on my three main projects, as well as a few smaller ones which will be released once completed and tested.
The Pornolizer is a PHP application which rewrites the content of a website to make it rude, running since the year 2000, it has been developed from perl, Python, .net to it's second iteration of PHP. The core of which is now available as an open-source package for all to use.
After rewriting the Pornolizer, I developed ResolvR, which is an open-source ad-blocking DNS resolver which helps bypass the issues experienced with ad-blocking code found on an increasing number of websites. The benefit also being that it can be used with smart devices such as TVs to help eliminate tracking and adverts.
My latest on-going project is LibreScan, which is a free vulnerability scanner for websites. Enter your website address, follow the validation requirements, and a report gets generated after the site has been scanned. Simple, but effective. Further development will allow for automated form-based authentication, scheduled scanning, and much more!
