Mon Feb 15, 1999
I started in a small “garage” type of business with other 3 people. In only two years it became the biggest web development company in the Balearic islands. It was the Internet boom time. At the peak we were about 30 people, which later had to be reduced.
My main task during this time was programming and designing, but I also did many other things like giving some conferences, employee interviews, organizing our team and work or talking with clients. Having the web servers at our offices and being near the webmaster allowed me to learn much about how a Linux server works. Some achievements:
- Company’s intranet on PHP+MySQL
- Company’s web stat system
- Class (image admin) that allows clients to upload images on any format, automatic levels, scaling, cropping and format conversion to gif, jpg and swf.
- Class for debugging PHP+MySQL
- Class for communicating Flash movies with PHP
- Class for extracting information via HTTP from external web pages
- www.garitocafe.com V1.0, completely database driven flash web site (with texts/images/sound). I was quite proud of this because the client could manage hundreds of images at a time when Flash could not load external images. Using a PHP script I generated swf files on the fly, which Flash could load.
- “Impuls al Disseny Industrial” multimedia PC/Mac CD-Rom including animation, programming and sound track.
- Database driven PHP PDF file generation system for important hotel company.
- Participated in the development of over 50 websites
I worked in Global Red until June 2001. A few months later I moved to Berlin.
