I'm a web developer and I love to work with open source technology stacks. So far I have been involved in projects that let me gain experience with the following:
- Web layout: GIMP and Photoshop;
- Back end: PHP and perl with mostly MVC-type paradigm, Smarty and Template Toolkit templating engines;
- Databases: PostgreSQL with stored procedures and triggers in PL/pgSQL;
I am very excited about Python, Ruby and also willing to give Node.js a try in the near future. I am eagerly waiting for a project that will allow me to dive into any of those technologies to gain first-hand experience.
