Hello my name is

Ezekiel Victor

I build software systems, race dirt bikes, fly helicopters, and tickle ivory.

Past victories include seeing Gravity to a $90M AOL acquisition with a team of 12 engineers, as well as overseeing engineering and ops at Sonic Electronix going from $30M to $60M revenue in 2 years.

I have a knack for learning things thoroughly and quickly and retaining that knowledge over time. I am also capable of rapidly absorbing extant codebases and problem domains, then enhancing and refining those all the while managing complexity for future engineers.

I have extensive full stack experience from SQL and NoSQL DBs to PHP and Scala to HTML5, CSS3, JS and CoffeeScript, jQuery and AngularJS, and Sass. I would describe my knowledge of Apache, PHP, MySQL, and the aforementioned front end technologies as encyclopedic and for other tech such as Scala and MongoDB highly qualified.

I understand the fundamentals of object-oriented and functional programming and apply those paradigms together. I actively use the latest features of PHP including traits, namespaces, and closures and am a proponent of the Facebook Hack language. I am also currently developing my own "meta language" for PHP that seeks to incorporate many of the functional concepts and syntactic gems of Scala.

I have non-trivial knowledge of and experience with (in no particular order) Yii and Zend Frameworks, object-oriented JavaScript, Git, Subversion, Regular Expressions, user experience and accessibility, deferred promise pattern, Web app security concerns, Redis, Memcached, SEO, Haml-like languages (PHP Haml, Scaml), Scalatra, and D3.js.

I would love to talk at length about any of the listed technologies.
