Here you will find some of my portfolio samples. My latest work is related to Barracuda Networks [NYSE: CUDA], a network security company, where I developed public, internal and partner-facing web tools and applications.
I started my webdev career by taking on projects as a freelancer, finding clients through the people I knew. Then the more I worked, the wider range of services were asked of me. So I had to master more and more techs which eventually lead me where I am today.

In any work, be it a simple website, or a complex integrated web application, I always make sure to implement a solid scalable structure. I know, I know “scalable” is used so often nowadays, and to use it in relation to a WordPress blog may sound kind of ridiculous.
However, think about it, today it’s a blog, but tomorrow it’s an multilingual online international store which would have to follow original layout and integrate with Salesforce (true story!). How would you separate all of that from Wordpress? That’s why from the very start, instead of choosing Wordpress as a main platform and allow it to "own the server," it was implemented rather as a separate section, a plugin if you will. The main core was built on a MVC CodeIgniter platform, then the store was integrated using Magento and its Salesforce plugin which cost only a few hundred dollars.
Q: Hey Nook, in your opinion, who is
the most influential printer
A: The FED.
If we were to start off with Wordpress from the start, as my client really wanted, it would have cost thousands!! of dollars more, since we would have to separate WP from the main website, somehow merge translations, merchandise databases, into Magento or some other platform, then QA it, which would probably have taken weeks... It was not a 5-page blog! Then copy design onto all the other platforms, make sure those platforms’ tags and variables are working with each other correctly, which means QA on all devices (WEEKS@#$!) and etc.
Nice and simple. Quick and sweet.
You just tell me what you need.
You will get it right on time,
Looking grand and most divine!
Gladly, we had it all cleanly build from the start, Wordpress lives happily on its own, has some parts of the store implemented, but it’s all managed by Magento and pulled to view with the help of one CodeIgniter controller. All the translation is made through CI as well, so it’s very clean, nothing extra, and well organized for the whole system to use. A little time was spent on translation and its CMS, but it was nothing compare to dealing with moving/merging all their stuff.
This story pretty much sums up the benefit of working with a person who can foresee where the things are going, and choose the proper way of building things from the start. Communication!!! is the key! Even though it took a great amount of convincing... That client of mine never heard of CI or Magento, and in her mind, going with the unknown was like asking her to travel to the Black Hole. Gladly, it was not a black hole, but rather a solid implementation.
To be honest, I never had any luck with contact forms. Many companies have them, but they are all different and time-consuming. I prefer a simple "Hi, I have a question regarding my project" on Facebook or Skype since every project is unique, and it needs more than 4 fields to describe it. So let's friend up on the following platforms.
As I mentioned, if you're a dev or a designer and would like to stay in touch, add me up.
Why is it when you try to impress someone, you keep getting something wrong... That's it, I am getting a QA. Meanwhile, please inform me of this error by submitting a report. Muchos thanks!
