About me

I am a web engineer fascinated with artificial intelligence and machine learning, specialized in building large back-end and front-end systems.

This is the best way to write software. Trust me =)

Open Source

The following are open source projects I’ve contributed to, either as a main contributor, or projects I’ve committed code to as an outsider.

My own projects

BigBrother.js – visual user session tracking – mouse movement and scrolling recording and playback https://github.com/formigone/big-brother-js

PHP Chain – a thin abstraction over PHP arrays to help you easily chain array transformation functions https://github.com/formigone/php-chain

HTML5 Stock Market Simulation – a HTML5-based stock market simulation in PHP using WebSockets (written in 2011 implementing WebSocket Draft 75 and Draft 76) https://github.com/formigone/html5-stock-market-simulation
