My name is SamBrishes (or Martin Ziegler in Real Life) and pytesNET is my platform to publish my programming stuff, such as Themes, Plugins, Scripts but also (Web) Applications and whole Systems and Platforms. I learn and use different programming languages to achieve this and I'm not opposed to new things.
You can find all of my skills, which I've acquired so far on my portfolio.
How everything started
I was 14 years old when I tried to learn programming. Back then everything started with a PureBasic DVD, which I found at an electronic retailer (Media Markt). Of course, I didn't achieve anything except of a small scroll-up space shooter consisting of a triangle that flies up and tries to destroy Comet-Like blobs. Since I didn't know anything about threads, procedures or co-workers I had big issues with the parallelization of animations. So the "enemy" objects didn't move any more while the player "shoots".
A long journey ahead...
Someday I discovered WordPress by reading about the new Version 3.0 release. I was instantly in love with this system and designed a bunch of themes and plugins. One of them was called Dexs PM System, which was my first real success with over 5,000 installations and 5 x 5 stars (doesn't sound much now, but it really was back then). However, I had to take all of them offline due to some security vulnerabilities, which I couldn't fix due to my full time job and my little knowledge about these at this time.
Since I'm really curious and open for new things, I also played a lot around with Joomla, Drupal, Typo3, Magento, MediaWiki, Wolf CMS and Bludit next to creating my own small systems. I also always stop for new programming languages, and so I learned Python 3 to create small automatization utilities and Desktop applications (using tkinter), but also to use alongside PHP with Django CMS and the micro framework bottle.py.
... until now
However, it is really hard to write down the path I took to be where I am today, but at least the most important steps should be included. Everything else can be viewed on my portfolio. Anyway, thanks for reading this, you can always contact me if you've any questions using the contact page.
