Delegate proposal: dev.sidhujag
« on: December 05, 2014, 04:23:34 PM »

Hi guys,

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jag Sidhu and I am a Software Engineer from Canada with around 15 years experience..My github is http://github.com/sidhujag I have a degree in Computer Science (specializing in Digital Image Processing). I've done some cool projects, including a 3rd person multiplayer 3d shooter coded in opengl/c++, image morphing and recognition(c++) and a dynamically simulated AI app (c++) which can train a robot (bunch of hinges/boxes/springs) to learn how to walk over time using a genetic algorithm/neural network..  in the workforce I have picked up skills in the following through a variety of projects including client/server applications, php/mysql driven websites for part management/electronic change order process, Javascript web clients for industrial embedded servers running in MQX/Windows CE, scriptable DirectX based video player system to demo locally dimming LED backlit TV's (Yes I helped bring that technology to your local bestbuy, we were bought out by samsung.):

c
c++
c#
learning F#
java
ada95
vb
.net
.net embedded compact
php4/php5
batch perl python scrpting
mysql, mongol DB
javascript(angularjs, jquery, dojo)
Graphics APIs: directx opengl
Android Development kit

IDEs:
Visual studio
Visual Studio embedded
Intellij
Netbeans
Eclipse (android development and able to debug bitcoin!)
Codewarrior mqx
Code composer for TI

OS/Architectures:
windows server 2008/2012
linux/unix
windows 98/2000/xp/7/8...
x86
arm

Source repos used:
Git
SVN
HG (mercurial)

I love the idea of bitshares and being able to work on it and be compensated for my time . It makes my work day go way faster and have something to look forward to every day :)
I have done coding in the following coins:

Maxcoin (helped with qt port for build system)
Devcoin (helped with android-app, bitcore port for insight block explorer, merged-mining, port to 0.8.6\0.9.2\0.9.3 versions of bitcoin)
Syscoin (helped with merged-mining, aliases, offers, certificates on the blockchain)

There might be some others too but not worth wasting your time reading stuff you probably don't care too much for.
I made an auction website called devcoinauctions.com( http://devcoinauctions.com/welcome-landing ) that I wanted to compete against something like quibids.com... essentially offering a better service (with crypto's integrated)... however I haven't had much time to keep it going I still have plans to put up some new auctions on there... I developed it to be turnkey. I learned some skills doing it:
wordpress with wp total cache optimization
varnish cache http accelerator (VCL scripting)
nginx webserver
General dealings with static/dynamic content of web served files, Content delivery via CDN, DNS issues
Experience with SEO, Social awareness (twitter/facebook/google plus) and ad campaigns through ad sense/facebook

Optimizing websites by increasing YPage and Google speed scores (devcoinauctions.com is 99% efficient with 0.4s load time (when it had 25+ auctions going): http://gtmetrix.com/reports/devcoinauctions.com/CEMqSFnF, it can handle up to 5000 users at once without loss of serving integrity on a cheap server (500meg ram single core).

Backlog of work to do:

I've started integrating e-commerce plugins for bitshares and have done OpenCart so far, with hopes to complete 10 others before moving on to other projects (see below), the list of plugins are:

1) WHMCS Bitshares Plugin (https://www.whmcs.com/)
WHMCS is an all-in-one client management, billing & support solution for online businesses.

2) OpenCart Bitshares Plugin (http://www.opencart.com/)
Opencart is a powerful open-source shopping cart platform for online merchants. Done

3) Ecwid Bitshares Plugin (http://www.ecwid.com/)
Ecwid offers the performance and flexibility you need, with none of the hassles you don't.

4) Zen Cart Bitshares Plugin (http://www.zen-cart.com/)
Zen Cart truly is the art of e-commerce; free, user-friendly, open source shopping cart software.

5) Drupal 7 Ubercart Bitshares Plugin (http://www.ubercart.org/)
Ubercart is the most popular Drupal E-Commerce platform.

6) Drupal 6 Ubercart Bitshares Plugin (http://www.ubercart.org/)
Ubercart is the most popular Drupal E-Commerce platform.

7) osCommerce Bitshares Plugin (http://www.oscommerce.com/)
osCommerce has over 7,000 free Add-Ons and 12 Years of strong experince

8) X-Cart Bitshares Plugin (http://www.x-cart.com/ecommerce-software.html)
X-Cart allows you to: Sell Online. Anything. Anywhere.

9) Commerce:SEO Bitshares Plugin (https://www.commerce-seo.de/)
Commerce:SEO is an advanced cart that is focused on tableless templates in HTML5 and CSS 3 and continues to support the efforts of PHP 5.4

10) PrestaShop Bitshares Plugin (http://www.prestashop.com/)
PrestaShop comes complete with over 310 features that have been carefully developed to assist business owners.

11) VirtueMart Bitshares Plugin (http://virtuemart.net/)
VirtueMart is an Open Source E-Commerce solution that powers large online shops.

I hope to put these up in an e-commerce section of bitshares.org similar to how bitpay did.

This work is being funded by I3 funds based on a 7 week forecast (2 weeks in). I plan to support these and add WooCommerce/Joomla/magento  plugins after based on what community wants.

Some other projects that need to be worked on:

OpenBazaar - implement BitUSD processing here
Bitshares open market app - work on whatever here (maybe integrate the plugins I did above)

Basically I can work on anything.. I usually learn what I need to know. For me its always fun learning new things... I'm a can-do type of person usually never say "no can't be done". I usually just do it if it needs to be done.

Please vote for me as a delegate. I hope by the time that I finish the plugins I will be voted in and I can start working on other things.

Vote now!

Deeply impressed, both by the application and the incentive system making it possible.

Other projects are going to have a tough time keeping their devs.

Thanks,

added to the backlog.. consider it my contract of work for now :)

About the incentive system... this is why I loved Devcoin.. you can work to earn.. and I spent alot of time thinking that it can provide work for people say in Africa with just an internet connection and get paid 10x more than the peanuts they were surviving on.

Now the incentive to work via paid delegates (without worrying about network security) alot of these problems that I envisioned to solve with Devcoin are already done here because of reputation/voting systems... the same problems Devcoin tries to ethically solve with an incentive system to earn are done better with bitshares so it takes the best idea in all of crypto and integrates it well with other ideas that are great aswell as the assets/mail/marketplace/voting capabilities that help put it over the top.

Alot of the early bitcoin coders loved Devcoin for the idea but not for the fact that it had large and unhalving supply (alot of which was mined early before merged-mining kicked in) and didn't have a democratic (or decentralized) way to allocate resources, which ofcourse are solved here aswell.
