George Violaris

Hey, I’m George Violaris. I live in Nicosia.

I am a programmer, network security consultant, and tech writer from Cyprus. I have worked as a software developer & consultant with local companies, and I am a hobby game programmer. I work with PHP, JavaScript, Node.js, Java, C++ and Python.

I studied Computer Science at the University of Nicosia, where I got a Bachelor of Science, and currently I am working towards my Master’s degree in Computer Network Security, with Middlesex University.

I work at Ideal Host Ltd as a web developer. Since 2008 I have been involved in the development of a number of web apps and have been consulting on web app security and vulnerability issues.

I take a very special interest in open source and digital economics – specifically I am interested how the mindset, collectivism, collaboration tactics, and abolition of secrecy, may affect things much bigger than software such as politics, society and the economy.

When not working, studying or learning, I like to spend time with my girlfriend, explore new technologies, social media and networks, write about what I do and experience, listen to a lot of music, read books, I drink lots of coffee and occasionally I like to go for a few drinks.

My Interests Programming, databases, open-source, digital-economics, technology, futurism, sci-fi, blogging, reading, writing, learning, thinking, gaming, music, guitar, movies, coffee, smoking, chocolate, good food, documentaries.

My programming skills:

  • PHP (CodeIgniter, Laravel)
  • Java (J2ME, J2EE, ADK)
  • Python 3
  • JavaScript (jQuery, jQueryUI, Bakcbone.js, App.js, Node.js)
  • SQL (MySQL/MSSQL/PostgreSQL)

Keeping a low profile.
