Learning to Code: Php, JS, Ajax, MYSQL, NOSQL, Node.js, Java, C#, Python, Zend 1, Linux Terminal, Windows Terminal, CSS, HTML 5.

I try to Increase my Security skills, as of 5/2015 I don't have any. Secure Routers and Networks, Linux machine, Windows Machine, Code security, VPS Security and anything else that has to secure my software.

This all started when I hired a company to make me a Booking System so I could charge membership. I started with IndiaNIC.com in India. It took them about a year then I noticed there were a lot of American names/emails in my testing database ( NOT keeping a NDA agreement). Plus they have very bad coding practices as I found out from other Programmers that tried to help get it done. IndiaNIC.com did not adhere to MVC.

Then I hired XB Software out of Minsk. They started out great but by the end, all my ideas and IP found their way to their website while I kept getting excuses why they were not able to finish the work...the working Price increased 50%. I simply could not afford it anymore. I did NOT get a thanks for all my suggestions that in the end, aided their bottom line. Oh, I forgot to mention, they advertised my booking system in Sweden but of course it was not mine, right!

Oh, there was also this guy Zhang out of China. He was cool at first then all of a sudden his "mom got sick" and was not able to continue to work but he still managed to finish other jobs done on Odesk. Oh well, there is someone else with my source code!

It's been 4.5 years since I started this booking system plus $45k deep. I know that is not a lot but it is for me, and I probably over paid anyway!

You know what they say, "If you want something done right, do it yourself."

So I decided to learn how to code so I could participate in getting what I want out of my software. I'm still trying to wrap my head around Zend 1 framework.
