I'm Zack, I'm a 22 year old Web Developer, Java Developer and Hobbyist Photographer from the Tampa Bay Area.
I like to solve problems and take pictures. This is my website / portfolio / dumping ground.
Nice to meet you.
I've worked with a number of things, but these are the ones that are worth mentioning or the things I like to work with
I've built a few internal projects in laravel, one of which is responsible for running the entire operation of a nation-wide utility billing company
I have extensive experience working with Magento 2, both Community and Enterprise Editions, and have created internal use modules for companies, enforcing business requirements and generating helpful marketing data
I spent bit of time engineering a wordpress based SaaS product for the restaurant and food service industry featuring online ordering and delivery quotes through postmates
I've been using Linux for years, both from a server administration and end user perspective, with a focus on security
I've been using LAMP/LEMP as my primary development work for most of my career
Containers are the future and reproducibility is incredibly important for verifying bugs and ensuring stability, I use docker day to day for development
Open Source Projects
Pretty much everything I do nowadays is for a company and not public, but here's a small collection of things I maintain or created at one point in time, in no particular order.
A maintained fork of michaelbonds/ship-station
Designed to programmatically access the ShipStation REST API via PHP with Guzzle
A highly configurable logging system for the Bukkit API, largely unnecessary now that log4j is bundled with spigot and bukkit, but it was pretty useful back in the day :)
An extensible Java IRC bot with a node-based permissions system, meant for basic channel administration and utilities, featuring a full plugin system with runtime classloading
