Hello, my name is Roger. I make websites.

Roger Chen is a programmer/hacker of sorts from Walnut (California) currently studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at U.C. Berkeley College of Engineering. He loves making websites and programming for the web.

You may have recognized him from somewhere:

Aside from web development and programming, Roger also likes playing the guitar, taking portraits, climbing trees, reading contemporary fiction, tennis, and writing about philosophy.

RogerHub is a website, created on August 26th 2009. Among the things that are on this website are several personal and professional blogs. Below are some of the personal blog posts I enjoyed writing the most.

Roger works primarily in PHP (especially for WordPress), JavaScript, Python, and C, but he will also work in C++, Java, Spanish, Ruby, Perl, or whatever language gets the job done. He serves as the primary server administrator for both this domain (rogerhub) and The Daily Californian newspaper. He has worked with SMTP mail exchangers, database administration, and technologies like jQuery, RSS, AJAX, and Comet, back when websockets and localstorage were nothing but a wild daydream.

Roger’s workflow and production stack is as follows:

  • Vim, the best text editor on the planet
  • GitHub, Bitbucket, subversion, Dropbox, Spotify
  • rdiff-backup for fast incremental backups
  • WordPress Multisite Network
  • Nginx, PHP-FPM, and APC
  • Vagrant with VirtualBox for development
  • Tiny Tiny RSS
  • MediaWiki for personal and professional documentation
  • Mac OS X
  • Linode for server hosting (that’s a referral link, by the way)
  • DigitalOcean and AWS for infrastructure support
