Here are some cool projects that I have done.
This is my own personal website which mainly functions by holding current professional information of myself, and also it offers a little background about me. This website is also a good way to market myself for the information technology job market, but it still holds a professional value.
I created company website for Robb Delisanti’s Asphalt Maintenance using WordPress with Site5 hosting service and GoDaddy for the domain. The site is to help promote and advertise the business more by showing people an in depth look on how the business functions with a procedure and a portfolio page of sealed driveways. This is a website is for a current employer and a firend that I attended high school with. I came up with the idea because we were talking how and where to advertise more for his business. I said that I would build him a website which was the first site I ever built.
During my attendance at D’Youville, I set up and maintained a web-server in the IT lab using spare hardware and the Linux distro, Ubuntu Intrepid Server 8.10. I installed and configured the necessary services for a web-server such as, apache, PHP, MYSQL, SSH, etc. I became proficient in a CLI Linux environment with folder structure and terminal commands. I also wrote a firewall using iptables rules. The main reason for setting up and configuring the server was to host my personal website, but also to gain the experience in administering a server.
I built an HTPC running Windows 7 and configuring Media Center to take full advantage of my home theater electronics and media collections. The HTPC consists of an ASUS motherboard, AMD X4 processor, G.Skill 4GB memory, Radeon HD 5770 video card, Crucial 128GB SSD boot drive, Seagate 2TB media drive and nMediaPC htpc case. The connected components are a Vizio 60″ 1080P LED HDTV, SiliconDust HDHomeRunPrime cable tuner, Sony 7.1 receiver, and Polk Audio 5.1 surround sound speakers. All peripherals are controlled by a Logitech Harmony 520 universal remote.
