Mainly an active lurker on HN.
Main areas are affiliate, online ads/marketing, media buying right now. Self taught programmer.
Learned programming with PHP in 2010. Have moved on to mainly Ruby and JS since. Though a lot of media buying requires PHP work still. Automation, crawling/scraping, and data mining are favs of mine.
Since late 2014, I have coded a successful SaaS app and helped improve profits and revenue for ad and marketing companies that weren't fully utilizing analytics and other helpful assets like split testing.
Since late 2016, I've been focused on another bootstrapped SaaS app in the online ad niche. Done my research, etc. I know it can be profitable. Just have to get it going.
I'm also back into Media Buying starting in 2017. And doing pretty well with it so far. Running e-commerce stores as well.
