[SpLaT] - Jason - Introduction


#1

Hi everyone. I’m [SpLaT]. I am a web developer by day and night, and an infosec nerd everywhere else in between.

I am particularly interested in web application security, both as a developer who wants to write more secure applications, and as a hacker who loves the thrill of finding bugs.

I’m pretty old school I guess. My first shell I popped was through gopher compliments of my local library’s dial-up service. Let’s just say that I was always on the library’s dial-up service… you know… learning about stuff…

The internet has come a long way since then, and I’m not much more skilled than I was back then. I can program ok in about three languages and program badly in about a dozen more. I love everything tech and will waste way too much money on hardware that I just can’t live without.

Welcome,

surprised you joined up given your …opionion… about forums and all. You might find that Discourse is actually a pretty neat platform. Also, it’s written in RoR so, I might need your help some…

Funny, I “learned a lot” at my local library growing up also. Funny how that works. :slight_smile:


#3

Yeah - I’d go with Discourse over just about any PHP forum solution. Good choice! I’m always here to help too with RoR. I was actually busy yesterday writing a custom markdown parser for Redcarpet yesterday… good times!


#4

Without a doubt, even though I love PHP.

Never used it, what is it?


#5

You use it every day muhuhahaha…

It is the most popular markdown parser that RoR has… used by sites such as Github…


#6

Well I’ll be damned…
