Programmer for 20y (since I was 11). Architect/Lead for hundreds of complex web projects.

Hire me: I work as part-time CTO while I also run one of the best developer teams in Europe who specialize on bespoke Software as a Service project development.

Ambition: Make web development more about point-and-click and less about command-line. Make it super-easy for new developers to write web apps.

Open-Source Project I work on, Agile Toolkit (). It grew quickly to become a great alternative to development with conventional frameworks. It's currently getting ready for next major release.

comment Structuring database for multi-object “activity” and “following” functionalities
Thanks for suggestions. My question is purely data-oriented and have nothing to do with database implementations or tuning. Possibly someone will be able to suggest a better model, so i'll wait.

I am using the ORM, but I need to decide how to structure my data model first.

comment Structuring database for multi-object “activity” and “following” functionalities
when you have 1000 users and each is following 100 objects then either each objects needs to add "timeline" event into the queue of each user every time or user need to iterate through all 100 objects to collect the updates.

comment Structuring database for multi-object “activity” and “following” functionalities
i do have activity table and then "object_activity" which joins multiple objects into a single activity. I wouldn't have problem to design the structure, but my design doesn't seem to be very scalable, especially when you need to determine which "activities" i need to show to the "users"

comment How to set-up a simple subversion workflow
I've found SVN to be more suitable in a closed development teams, but for personal use Git and www.github.com are great. Read documentation and if you are on a mac, github have a great client app.
