Natalia's Kazakova's Computing School

Even before I had my own PC, I was keen on learning about it. I was more than addicted to computers so I've signed up to this computing school to get a better understanding of what happens behind the scenes. This is where I first learned about computer hardware, HTML and even built a few tiny programs using VisualBasic.

For 12 years this has been the place that taught me history, geographics, biology, chemistry, math and other necessary subjects to help me become an educated person.

My skillset
Languages I'm fluent in

PHP

I have 6 years commercial experience developing web applications using PHP. I focus on building multi-user, fast, scalable enterprise level applications. I've been around since PHP 4 and currencly using PHP 5.5 in production.

SQL

MySQL has been the first choice for a RDBMS for about 6 years. I've dealt with tables up to 100M rows, optimized, normalized, denormalized schemas, set up master-to-master, master-to-slave replications. I've done everything from query writing to installing MySQL servers on production environments.

Javascript

I've used Javascript for the past 4 years. I started off writing simple snippets such as dropdown menu's and now I build jQuery plugins and single/multi page apps.

I love trying out new tools/languages/frameworks even if I don't have a particular task to use them on. I often spend my personal time, learning and expanding my skills within and outside of web development. I've done countless mini projects to try things out, I've built simple Android apps, wrote an NFC to Carambola data transmitter in Python, built a Chrome extension that tracks time spent on pages using SailsJS and MongoDB and many other side projects that were never published.
